Rick: I suppose you have the old style F-1n from 1976 and not the new style F-1N from 1981. In that case you need a 1,3V mercury battery type PX625. The production of theese batteries is abandoned, but may still be available. Try this site: http://www.px625.com/px625/main.cgi. The F-1N takes a 6V alkaline battery that may be bought in photo shop.

The ink stamp code W1219 in your F-1N body means your's was built Dec 1982. Your camera just turned 21. Happy Birthday. Lindy

Hello Folks! this is one great site! I would desperately like to know the year when my new F1 is made. I hope someone knows how to read those numbers. The serial number in the back of the body is: 186016 and inside the body(in the film chamber) there is: W1219 does this tell you anything? Thanks and happy new year -micke-

Does anyone have maintenance information for the FN finder? I thought mine had simply gotten some dust between the fixed and rotating sections; turns out it is really rust particles I'm seeing!

I recently bought a New F1 with both the power winder FN and the motor-drive FN. I understand that this will allow me to shoot in shutter priority mode. However, even with the motor-drive or the winder attached, I'm unable to turn the aperture ring on the lens to the 'A' mark unless the stop-down button is engaged (with the button extended showing the red line). I've tried a number of new-FD lenses and they all behave this way. Is this normal? The manual mentioned nothing about the stop-down button.
