In April of 1984, Nikon released their final and most advanced manual-focus underwater camera, the Nikonos V. For nearly twenty years it would stand as the most successful underwater and all-weather camera that Nikon (or anyone) had ever made.

Is nikonos V waterproof?

The Nikonos V — with its striking orange exterior — is one of the most legendary 35mm film cameras ever made. Created for scuba diving, the Nikonos can go as deep as 50 meters underwater (about 5 bar / 72 pounds per square inch of pressure), which covers more than enough depth for recreational divers.

Does nikonos V float?

Nikonos cameras are neutrally buoyant at best, which means they don’t really float too well. Despite being bright orange, if you lose this thing in the surf, it’s almost as good as gone.

How do you rewind Nikon film IV?

The four shutter settings are around the wind lever on the right: A, M, B and R. Leave it on A, automatic. M is a mechanical 1/90 setting for when your batteries die or for flash. B is Bulb for long exposures (why?), and R is for rewinding the film.

Is it cheaper to roll your own film?

There’s also the cost – usually it is much cheaper to bulk roll your own films than to buy them off the shelf in the standard 36 exposure rolls.

How many movies is 100 rolls?

A 100ft bulk roll will get you just over 18 rolls of 36 exposure film (I usually find there’s about 10-15 frames left over after spooling that 18th roll).

Should I put unused film in the fridge?

Storing it in the fridge will preserve the film for a lot longer than if it was left at room temperature. Saving your film for a date longer than 6 months away? Consider using the freezer to preserve your film for longer. Don’t use your film immediately after taking it out of the fridge or freezer.
