I have an SB-20 speedlight.
Will it work correctly with the AS-1 adaptor I have on my F2?
Which is the best flash adaptor to use the SB-20 on an F3?
Any advice gratefully received!
Jeremy

Hi Leonard, I've really enjoy this F3 site. Just to check you if you are going to review the FM3a in the foreseeable period?

Your advice and work is excellent. I'm actually thinking about getting an F3 or Fm3a. But I have read a lot and realised that TTL flash on the F3 is really difficult and costly as well compared to Fm3a. Hope you can help.

Many thanks in advance.

Dennis.

Thanks for your help and the fast response. I'm thinking about it and yes the price is a big difference! Twice the price for an F3 in Singapore. I've an F2a and quite like the professional series body but the F3 will only be in operation in just one shutter speed without batteries... That's the disapointing part.

Dennis.

Hi,

I have recently been given my father's F3 which he used constantly throughout the '80's and then left in his closet for many years. I replaced the batteries with two 1.5 volt batteries but the LCD does not show anything. I have the camera switched on, so that is not the problem. The camera seems to be in perfect condition except for this. I read in the manual that after 6-7 years the LCD panel may fade and need to be replaced. Is this really true? I need help desperately. Thank you so much.

Hi.

Has anyone tried to use F3HP to shoot sport games? I tried with 180/2.8 lenz and have a tough time with focusing on the fast moving objects. Am I using the wrong tool or am I going to get better with practice?

Does anyone know why my F3HP suddenly goes to 1/80 shutter speed and does not change no matter how I change incoming light? It happens very random and annoying.

Finally I do a automatic (10sec) shutter activated and then it goes back to normal: various speeds. Did I touch anything by mistake?

To Dennis: Greatest difference between F3 and FM3A: price! The F3HP, when new, costs almost double the price of that of the FM3A (here in Europe). Production of the F3 was abandoned in spring 2001, that of the FM3A is just starting. With the F3, you only have 1/60 mechanical backup exposure time when the batteries have failed, with the FM3A, you have a mechanical backup of all exposure times. But the FM3A has, contrary to the F3, no interchangable viewfinder prism, no 100% viewfinder sight and no mirror-lockup (or only one coupled with the self timer). With the F3, you can use older non-AI Nikon lenses, with the FM3A, only AI. About a dozen of different viewfinder screens are offered for the F3, but only three for the FM3A. F3 has LCD for exposure times, FM3A a needle meter.

Hi all, I've thinking about getting an F3 or Fm3a. I currently have an F2a and would like to have another body. What are the actual difference between the F3 and the Fm3a? Can F3 be use just like the F2a and Fm2 manually and be in operation at all shutter speed without batteries? More issues on F3HP and stuff like that I can't figure out. Too many variations of this F3 models that I can't differentiate. I've been reading on this site but still having difficulties. Please help... Many Thanks in advance!

Dennis.

"robertosy" and "SAM": Nikormat/Nikomat has a different Message Board at: http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/messageboard/nikkormatmsg/index.php3 from what I gathered, Nikkormat FT uses 1.35v Mercury cell which is banned in many countries now; as for SAM, this is a dedicated message board for Nikon F3 camera, if you want to look for a manual, you can try: www.craigcamera.com the shop sells used camera instruction manuals (ranges from USD10-30 per copy in either original or photocopy). Good Luck.
