  • N6006 - A Worthy Traveling Companion

    Dec 30, 1999 by sweeper is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Electronics
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A reliable SLR with a thoughtful feature set, excellent flash features
    Cons: Auto focus getting long in the tooth,

    Summary: A good slide show is a joy forever; a bad slide show is just bad. I've seen both, more the latter than the former. Presenting such a show is a risk every time I put one together. I know. My name is Dave and I'm a slide show junkie. I enjoy ... read more

    Pros: Built in flash. Sturdy. Looks good. uses Nikon Lenses.
    Cons: No socket terminal for off-shoe flash

    Summary: I've used all the popular brands of cameras and my favorite cameras are: The Nikon F2 and the Nikon F-601 ( or N6006, American version ). I'm picky and want something well built. This is what a camera should feel like. The n6006 is aerodynamic, and ... read more

    Pros: Good solid design - many auto/manual options
    Cons: Door latch; battery life

    Summary: This was a good, reliable camera, with a convenient built-in flash, but using it really eats the batteries of course. Like many other N6006 (F-601) users, my door latch broke 18 months ago and I haven't used the camera since. However, today ... read more

    Pros: durable
    Cons: slow AF

    Summary: I bought my N6006 in May 1991 from the United States of America. I had earlier studied different cameras in the camera shops here in Finland and after this I decided the N6006 was what I wanted. At the time I did not know anything about cameras so this ... read more

  • N6006: Best AF Buy

    Apr 21, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, has everything you need
    Cons: won'e mount non-AI lenses

    Summary: The N6006 is extremely intuitive to use and is extremely well designed. The aperture is adjusted using the aperture ring and the multi-command dial, when in manual mode and shutter priority mode, emulates a traditional shutter speed dial. The display in ... read more

    Nov 15, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quality and the ability to use old MF lenses
    Cons: Slow AF and really noisy

    Summary: I bought this camera 2 years after its introduction in Sweden after considering the N8008s/F801s since it included most features I needed of a camera (the lack of a DOF-preview and the ability to use standard AA batteries did not bother me at the time). ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, features
    Cons: Slow auto-focus

    Summary: Ten years ago, I decided that it was time to upgrade to an auto-focus SLR. I had lots of choices, but the one that caught my eye was the new Nikon N6006 (or the F601, as it is known in Canada). After spending my savings, I was the proud owner of a F601 ... read more

    Pros: lightweight, options
    Cons: hard to learn for a novice

    Summary: I married into this camera about two years ago. My husband is absolutely in love with it. A year ago, our home was broken into and it was stolen. Immediately, my husband went on a search to find a replacement. Since it is no longer in production, ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great features! Awesome technology!
    Cons: Plastic film door catch that keeps breaking -- questionable design quality

    Summary: Overall, the N6000 and N6006 are both great, amateur-level SLR's. I owned an N6000 first. I loved it! The only thing I wanted that the N6000 didn't have was auto-focus. So, I bought an N6006. However, one week prior to purchasing the 6006, I was ... read more

    Pros: Sensible controls, smooth AF, many control options
    Cons: Plastic and adhesive construction

    Pros: Great entry level camera that won't leave experienced shooters wanting
    Cons: Poor film door design can be broken with repeated wear.

    Summary: If there was ever a camera to take a snap shooter to the pulitzer prize in photography, its this camera. Nikon didn't put any fancy bells and whistles on this camera, its just a quality automatic camera that can be run in full auto, full manual, or in ... read more

    Pros: Durability, easy of use, autofocus
    Cons: 6V battery, autoexposure (at times)

    Summary: No longer in production, this Nikon entered the market in 1990 as an affordable camera for those interested in moving to a more automated camera. It was my first step into the world of *technical* cameras after 20 years using only manual 35mm's. ... read more

    Pros: great looking pictures, great for novices, not too expensive
    Cons: heavy, bulky, doesn't have all those professional features if you need them; replace batteries a lot if you don't turn it off

    Summary: My Nikon 6006 takes beautiful pictures; I don't. I don't know about focal lengths and aperatures and shutter speeds and ISOs. I'm pretty good at making sure the entire head of the person I'm photographing gets into the picture (unlike my Dad ... read more
