TIPS ON MF-24 CARE
UPDATE: with MB-23 Power Pack section: Multi-Control Section Supplements: 1) When used with the later MB-23 Multi-Power Sources Pack; 2) IF Film Advance stops during shooting 3) For Multi-Control Section
The Nikon 250-Exposures Multi-Control Back MF-24 is the long film roll version of the MF-23. Both MF-23/ MF-24 are exclusively designed for use with a Nikon F4 camera and a High-Speed Battery Pack MB-21, the External Power Regulator MB-22 and the MB-23 that introduced at later stage. The MF-23/MF-24 replaces the standard F4 camera grip and back to allow continuous shooting (as for the MF-24, it permits shooting of up to 250 frames without changing film). EXCEPT for the long film roll shooting capability. The MF-24 is equivalent to the MF-23 in all of its functions. We will use the MF-24 as the template here in this site - please SKIP sections that contain the MZ-1 cassettes and 250-exposures section as it is refer to the MF-24.
The MF-24 offers the following functions-.
(1) Data Imprint Function: Lets you select and imprint any of the following:

(2) Auto Exposure Bracketing Lets you shoot up to 19 continuous frames, each with a different exposure. Center value is selectable.
(3) Freeze Focus (Focus Priority) Function: The camera's shutter is automatically released when the subject enters a preset focus position.
(4) Interval Timer Function: Lets you take a specified number of shots at specified intervals for a specified number of shootings.
(5) Exposure Delay Function: Lets you set remaining time before exposure any number of shots.
(6) Long Time Exposure Function Lets you set exposure duration up to 999 in hours, minutes or seconds.
(7) Daily Alarm, Film Alarm and Film Stop Functions
(8) Shutter speed aperture and frame count indications
(9) Imprint Level Adjustment.
