T S Loh, I don't know which website you are looking at, but this site: http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/messageboard/f3message/index.php3 has a lot of good information on the Kodak DCS100. Walt McKinney

I am not to sure if there is another version of a F3 Digital Back other than the Nikon F3/Kodak DCS100 as mentioned in that digital site. However, that was the most detailed of information that relates to the DCS-100 I can find from the web thus far. This is indeed a special site. Thanks for the work, mr leo.

Dear Reader: I feel that the F3 is the best SLR of all time. During the years I have shot with Canon MF and Leica R, but the F3 is a perfect design. The body and shutter can match any current SLR in build quality. Why is the F3 so good? First and foremost, it has no motor. The F3 is only 700 grams, and very well balanced. The MD 4 may be added when needed. This is not the case with the F4 and F5, which are both ugly monsters.

Great finish, and very smooth advance and re-wind. An SB-12 can be slipped on to make for a compact TTL package. The SB-16 is a better flash, but it also very big and heavy. No SLR in history can match the F3's build quality, balance, and looks. With the CF-22 and 50mm 1.4 Ai-S, it represents the zenith of manual focus SLRs. A legend. Thank You, Russell Ruggiero PS: I shoot with Leica, and the F3 can match the M7 every step of the way. They are both great products.

I would like to restore a F3 and a F3T to new condition. Is there someone that can help? Are there replacement base plates and other parts available? Thanks B Larsen

I really want to take long exposure shots with my Nikon 8008. However my manuel dosen't do a very good job telling me how to do it. I've wasted two rolls of film trying to figure this out. Some one please help. Thankyou, calleen

On two recently developed films I noticed overexposed spots on every exposure (more or less in the same corner). Can this be due to the fact that I shot the pictures with the hp viewfinder removed in quite bright sunlight? for what i have read till now, removing the viewfinder can only influence the light metering. Has anyone any similar experiences, and could using a DW-3 waste view finder prevent leaking light? thanks, Sjoerd Hermens

The "digital back" mentioned below by John as being on E-bay is in fact a Nikon MF-14 data-back for the F3 series cameras. It will imprint the date and time or a sequential number up to 2,000 in the lower right corner of the film frame. It will not allow the F3 series to take digital images. Sorry. Walt

I recently tried a Sigma lens on my F3 and the meter stipped and has not work since. I replaced the batteries twice, put my Nikon lens back on the body, but still no meter! Did I kill my camera?

Has everyone ever tried to open the F3HP (or F3) prism (the viewfinder)? For some unknown reason I have dust accumulating inside... Thanks
