    Nikon Lite Touch / AF600

    Hello All,

    I found a Nikon AF600 in a charity shop for £6 (the battery cost me more) and it seems like a nice shooter, especially the 28mm lens. I read that the DX coding only registers up to 1000ASA.

    My question is, if I load a roll of Neopan 1600 or even Delta 3200 will the camera read it as 1000ASA or assume no DX code and set 100ASA?

    Thanks!
    Steve.

    The AF600 is kind of strange. According to the manual, 3200 ISO will set to 1000, but 1600 will set to 400.

    Thanks for the reply. That would work well for Delta 3200 then but not so well for Neopan 1600.

    I just bought another of these cameras and this one came with the manual. Now I know that it doesn't read 800 speed film either, great, I'm halfway through a roll of 800 in the other one I've got. To make matters worse, it's rated it at 1000ASA rather than 400ASA. Grrr.

    However, it seems a simple job to get it to read Neo1600 as 1000ASA, just one black panel to scratch off.
