Looking for some advice. I'm working on an F3 camera that has been dropped on the hot shoe/film wind side (I'm not the one who dropped it in case that's important!). The impact bent the black plate that's in between the hot shoe contacts (and below the film wind reel), which (I think) is why the camera back release button won't move. My question is, how else can I get the back open. Or failing that, how can I remove that bent assembly without opening the back and bend it back into place. It appears to be bent about 1/16th of an inch. Like it could be bent back into place if I could access the back side of it. The rest of the camera appears to be functional, although I haven't seen what kind of pictures it takes since it got dropped.

I am looking for information on a combined video/35mm still camera system referred to a PentaCam CVCS. This system had several models. The system was supposed to be high resolution color video and 35mm still photography in a single system. The system was developed using the Nikon F3 by replacing the prism and viewfinder screen. I have also be told that there is a similar system for the Nikon F5.

Manual for Nikon F3 ?
http://www.webster.edu/acadaffairs/asp/mediacenter/Photo/equipment%20manuals/NikonF3User.pdf

But personally, you should print LEONARD's HTML version, it is very very detail and you can learn a lot from him ..
http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/nikonf3ver2/f3manual/index.htm

P.S. I notice the site had been re-designed (by helper Mr. Allan), I prefer the old site which used to be so easier to navigate and find out what you are looking for. For an example, the HTML instruction should be placed right at the index page and I remembered I can find the alternate PDF file download right at the main page for an easy one-click download as well, it is also gone now. Some of the important features such as the manual links should be placed as priority. (Just a Suggestion, leo.. it is such a lovely (& important) info site and should keep it that way..).

I just recently bought a F3 with ZF 50 1.4, really happy about it and I think F3 is a all time classic, proud to be the owner of F3

I just recently dusted off my camera as I have been using a digital camera. I miss the creative control of my F3. I use it almost exclusively on manual. I am looking for a lens cover. does anyone know where I might purchase one?

There should be a A/A program for nikon users. since the advent of ebay I now own at least one model dating back to the Nikkorex. 15 F bodys alone. My wife Does not quite see it this way. They perform well, are works of art as well as higly techincal instruments. My only compliant is how hard it is to find camera stores that stock obscure used equipemnt,that in its day was unabtainable for someone like me. I just spent $500.00 and got a F3HP a FM2N and a FE that look as it they just came out of the box (which were not included,he said he threw them away) The previous owner siad he was going digital, more power to him. I am now looking for a 250 back for both my F2 and F3 for no other reason then they look cool. Also that great looking yellow case I annot seem to find. I like to set 3 or 4 bodies on my desk at work, and listen to some of the comments I get about "what are those" The black paint has the beautiful glow about them. I really enjoy this site since most of what I have purchaesd did not come with instruction manuals. I am headed out to South Dakota this week armed with 4 or 5 bodies and looking for a great photo trip. I appreciate all the info this site has provided, keep up the good work.

I just sold my digital equipment and bought an F3HP with MD-4 what I had used for years as you can beat the quality and performance and reliability of this camera.

I am now looking for a MN-2 battery and charger for my drive. Can anyone tell me where I may find one of these? yes I know the ni cads will need replacing due to the age and I can do that. The replacement cells are #N-270AA if anyone needs to replace there's...

I do still have some of my old lens for it and my favorite all time lens for fashion and glamor is the 85mm AIS and out standing lens.

Thanks for you help
Mark

LONG LIVE THE F3's
