I have *finally* managed to get some CR2 batteries to put in this Nikon F75 camera, and it works great! For being a budget prosumer model, it has held up really well.

Sadly the rubberized coating on the right side grip is becoming gooey, but thankfully unlike other Nikon models the back plate (the place you press your face against) is just plain plastic.

I’m excited to take it for a ride!


There’s only a couple of glitches I noticed so far with autofocus and one particular AF-S non-D lens. And one AF spot is glitched. Nothing major though, and can be worked around.

It’s remarkable how similar these cameras were to modern DSLRs already. My Nikon D7500 is slightly larger but otherwise looks mostly the same. It’s also extremely light when compared to my Nikon F801s, which is an excellent camera except for the lack of AF-S lens support.
