Does anyone know what's the purpose of the extra click stop in between the '30' and '15' settings on the New F1's shutter speed dial? I can't find anything about this in the user manual. Thanks.

Wayne! The original F! has a 1,3volt mercury battery that fits in a chamber under the camera. Turn the camera and remove the cover with a coin. The F-1New has a 6V battery placed in a chamber in front of the camera at the left hand side of the lens. The cover with the handgrip can easily be removed. Push the litte button on the lower side and the cover releases

This message was posted before, but I cannot find any new reference. Has anyone seen any digital/electronics (backs or other) for the F1N? Also, my light meter broke for about a year-now it works fine. I still need to get the motor working again. It is the ni-cad pack. Does anyone know a good way to test these 2 pieces? Thanks for your response.

Simon, The F-1N cameras were made till approximately Mid 1992. That would be the _G code. Lindy

RE: Speed finders availability. I live in Melbourne, Australia. So that is where I found my speedfinder. I know of 2 others for sale in the melbourne at the moment. One is attached to camera the other is in it's plastic case in one of our local pro 2n'd hand shops. They are probably x australian navy. A few at KEH camera brokers online website too. I paid about $250 AUS. Which is about $450 US I think. I'm still looking for an AE finder. Cheers Simon

I didn't know speed finders were easy to get; have been looking around without any success. Any suggestions or advice on where I can get the Speed Finder FN?
Thanks.
Andrew
