Well, I finally got my Sunpak 555 to go with my F3HP. The only problem is that I bought it used from B&H and don't have the manual. Anyone know of a way to get it electronically?

Thanks,

Scottz

Hi Frank, The new 'G' series lenses will fit your F3 but may not be usable properly since it is meant to be used with AF cameras where the aperture is adjusted using the dial on the camera body.You will need lenses with aperture rings for them to work with the F3HP, such as Nikkor AF-D lenses and manual focus lenses.

Hi Walt
Mystery re MH-2 solved.
Found a new one for sale and read the manual!!
It does indeed run on 110 or 220/240 volts.
The manual implied each unit was supplied with both cords but there was only one in the box.
You could adapt any cord to whatever voltage you need - with a circuit tester and some native cunning.
Thanks for your input
Cheers
Jon

My F2 Photomic with attached Nikkor zoom was stolen, and the insurance company replaced it with an F3HP and a 28-80mm f3.3-F5.6G AF lens. They arrived separately, and now I can't seem to get the lens to attach to the F3! Further, the lens doesn't seem to have an F-stop adjustment. Am I missing something? Is there a "master list" somewhere which identifies the lenses which fit the F3?
Thanks!

Warren,

Nikon does not keep records of serial number vs date of manufacture, so getting any info from them is a futile gesture. If you will go to:

www.cs.kau.se/~nicke/private/photo/misc/f3date.html

you will find an list based on data from purchasers. The accuracy of this list is not guaranteed, but it will give you an approximate age of your camera.

Regards,

Walt

Does anybody know how to date the age of F3's by the serial number. ie use the serial number to determine the date when the camera was manufactured....(???)

Julia, the combination of an f/4.5 zoom and TC-200 results in loss of light reaching the viewfinder by 2 stops, making it something like an f/9.0 lens. Hence it will darken the view and there is not much you can do except to focus on the surrounding matte are of the screen. Also, it is advisable to use a tripod to keep the camera steady as the shutter speed will be considerably slower than if you were to use the zoom alone.

I have a Nikon F3 w/80-200 f4.5 lens.

Just got a TC-200 Teleconverter, and when I put it on the horizontal (split screen) focus line was black. Or more specifically, one half of the circle was black. Sometimes, I could see through one half the circle, or get it to switch to the other half, but never both halves.

I could see the general image, and I think my focus was pretty close, but I'd sure feel better if I could REALLY line up the split screen. Any suggestions? BTW, I changed the focus, f-stop, settings, tried 'depth of field' button,
everything.... TIA, as always. -Bob

Jon,

If you will go to: www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/nikonf3ver2/accessories/mh2mn2/
you will find what appears to be a copy of a manual for the MH-2. The picture with it shows what appears to be a 220-240V plug. Your info that it was available with either (or both) 120V and 220-240V plugs appears to be correct. Take a look and see if it answers your questions.

Walt
