Jaime, Yes, the shutter speed dial must be moved to either "X" or "B" position to close the shutter after being on the "T" setting. Walt

Kirk, The AI series of lenses produced some of Nikon's best lenses. A number of them are classics. That's not to say that the lenses of today aren't good, just that some if the earlier lenses were considered to be the peak of lens design and quality. Walt

Greetings to everybody from the jungle, I'm still enjoying my vacations with my recently bought F3. Since it's my first Nikon, Is it right that the "T" setting opens the shutter until I move the speed dial to "X" or B or another speed?. I've always considered that at the "T" setting the shutter is opened until I depress the Shutter release again. Thanks Jaime

I have an F3HP I just pulled out to clean. Its been sitting a couple of years. It seems to be shooting at one shutter speed no matter what I set the speed. Long settings like 1s or more do not result in a long opening. B also does not stay open. I tried reinstalling the battery, I tried using the manual shutter release, I ran a roll of film through. Nothing I've tried works. Any ideas?

hI Walt, Thanks for provided me the website for converting an non AI. I think It,s better for me just to purchase a 85F2AI that I want, I think the optics suppose to be better than the non-AI, correct?

Kirk, Yes, the aperture ring is milled to provide a slot to engage the coupling mechanism of the newer cameras. For more information, you can check out this site: http://www.aiconversions.com/ Regards, Walt

Hi, I just bought a used F3. I noticed when I went through a roll of film and opened the back,the frame counter went back to 15, not 0. I opened and shut the back again and it went back to 8. I tried several times, with no success. Suggestions?

Kirk, The F3 series cameras will work quite nicely with the AI lenses. In fact, when the F3 was introduced in 1980, the AI series of lenses were the current lenses. The introduction of the AIS lenses began in 1981. Regards, Walt
