Hello, My name is Andre, and I sort of have a porblem with my Nikon F3 (which I love). A couple days ago, I noticed that when I tried taking a picture, the shutter release button wouldn't work. So I looked on the camera manual, and I read that when the battery is running low, the shutter realse button locks up, and thus one has to use the backup mechanical release lever. Well yesterday, I baught a set of new batteries, hoping that would resolve the problem, but when I placed the batteries on, and tried to take a picture, the shutter release button still didn't work. I can see that the light meter works, and everything seems to be just fine, except for the shutter realse button. For now, I'm using the backup, but I was hoping somebody knows what the problem is, and if it can somehow be fixed. I took it to a local camera shop, and they had no idea what the problem is. I love love love this camera, and I just want it to work again. If I could get some advice, on what I can do to fix my camera, or where I can take it (I live in the East Village and Princeton, NJ). Thank You! - Andre

The flash sync speed is set automatically at 1/80 sec when the camera is in the "A" mode, or at any time when the shutter speed is set at 1/125 sec or above. At the "X" setting the sync speed is 1/80 sec. The highest manual sync speed is 1/60 sec. Walt

When using the F-3 with flash. Is the shutter speed always 1/80 or can it be adjusted to other settings?

The MF-6 and the MF-6B accomplish the same thing - to leave the leader out of the cassette on rewind. Nikon made a few minor changes in the MF-6, one of which was the installation of slightly longer film pressure rollers, and called the new version the MF-6B. I doubt you could tell the difference between the two without having them side-by-side. Walt

I would like to sell my Nikon f3 with Nikkor 50mm f/1.2s lens and also 200mm long lens. I rarely use it and prefer using my digital camera. If you interested I'm asking for a fair price being its in good condition and of course one of a kind nowdays. Thank you for your inquiry.
