Hi, I have a Nikon F3 and I've been having an issue where some negatives have half the film over exposed. That is, the right most side of each negative is over exposed. Sometimes it happens, sometimes not. About 5 shots out of 30 on average have this problem. You can see a sample of the problem in the contact sheet shown here:

Notice that the 3 exposures on the bottom are half over exposed. Any comments on how this could happen? There is a lot of info on the MIR site about the F3 internals and I would be happy to read up in order to understand it. Also, from my experience, I will get better results from taking it to a technician if I can explain to him my suspicions (that is to say, its been mostly useless taking my cameras to technicians without knowing myself in detail what the problem is).

Dear experts: I have just purchased an F3 MX4 Oxberry and
I am confused as to how the reg pins are disengaged or engaged after each trigger of the shutter.

According to the F3 Oxberry Pro 3 manual, this is automatic
when the shutter is triggered. Does the MX4 lack this feature!?

And are the controllers for the Pro 3 and MX4 too rare to find?

Best regards,
Steven

Hello - I recently purchased an F3, MD-4 and 80-200 f4. The camera has no power and I can't get the shutter to fire unless I use the manual release. I have changed the batteries but do not have access to a multi-meter to verify that the batteries are indeed good (they came from a new ~ older ~ pack from the PO).

I will clean the contact and try again, but it does not seem to function so far.

I will check here but email is the preferred method.

Thank you.

I have the same question Mr. Molina had about the F3 shutter. I have an F3HP in exellent condition exept for the shutter speed dial. It rotates freely and won't lock on any number. Any ideas anyone?
Thanks..

Hi,

I own an F3 that has two small things that look like eyes in the viewfinder. Any idea what these are and for what reason they are there?

Regards,

Toby

I recently purchased a Nikon F4s, F3 HP, F2 and a Nikon F. I noticed the len off the F doesn't fix on the F3, but the F3 lens fix on the Nikon F. It fits the F2 however, It's a 50mm 1.4 lens (s) I thought they all inter changed. I previously had a D100, F100 and a N6006 all others interchange OK. Why the difference? If you know email me at home please......maxhouse@cox.net
