I have a problem with my F3HP. The meter doesn't work in "A" mode. The shutter will fier; but it acts the same as if it was in "T" mode. I have to turn the shutter knob to close the shutter. Also, in manual mode the minus sign shows at every shutter speed no matter what aperture I set. Anyone hear of this problem before?

Tom Williams: a similar question has been asked several times at this MB, do a search via key words - you can find some answers to that. Actually, there was already a link provided by the creator (leonard) at the bottom of the main index page that leads to serial numbers, you may also encourage to find out from the link there. Cheers.

John: I have tried to find your problems via the service manual but cannot find any clue to it (will post when find out). Next, your pictures are cool... actually, I have found another photographer via the Canon NEW F1 site in this MIR site who, like you, also seems to be very good in nature photography. It is good to get a chance to appreciate others' work via the Net in this manner and I am glad you ahve posted your URL for us to share. Cheers.

This has happened so rarely that I've always blown it off, but I just ran into it again. I was shooting a telephoto scene with a 200/micro set wide open on automatic. It's possible that 1/2000 wasn't fast enough to get a correct exposure, as I was shooting on the beach at sunrise. I got the slides back and found that half the frame was black, as if the shutter curtain didn't go all the way across the film plane. It looked kind of what you'd get if your shutter speed was higher than your flash sync, but I wasn't using flash. This is probably my fourth F3, and I don't recall ever having had this problem before. On the other hand, I so rarely use the auto setting that I can't be sure. Anybody know what's up? Thanks.

Duncan Francey: The viewfider illumination is just a function and has nothing to do with the LCD displays (which would change according to mode of exposure control + flash settings). i.e. if you are operating in Aperture Auto, only shutter speed info will be shown or when in manual control, the user selected shutter speed will be shown (or in the case of flash 1/80 sec will be diaplayed etc.). The illuminator will lights up when the external light source is too dim for visually check the LCD displayed info BUT it will not be affecting exposure information nor affecting any of the camer function (except of cause, drain slightly from the power supply). Hope it helps.

Hi
Should have stated its a Nikon F3HP, apart from viewfinder illuminator "problem" all is perfect - great camera.
Cheers

Does any one know if the viewfinder illuminator lights up both shutter speed and ADR as Nikon say in handbook
Mine only appears to light up shutter speed chosen.
Is this a problem ?
Any comment gratefully appreciated .
All the best,
Duncan
