I have just an F3HP body for my birthday. However, someone gave me a AF Nikkor 70-120mm lense. Is there a way I can set the AF lense to a manual mode so I won't damage the F3HP?

One caveat for using that list in the post below. That list is based on the date the camera was first sold as new, and is not an actual date of manufacture. Nikon does not publish actual manufacturing dates tied to serial numbers. The date listed may reflect having sat on a dealer's shelf for an indeterminate time.

Hello, Partly because of what I read on this site, I just bought a used F3HP in like new condition - and am very happy I chose it. The pictures are wonderful. The serial # is 1648120 and I was wondering if anyone knew what year it might be from (I tried clicking on the swedish link but it came up as an error). Any help would be great and thanks for the site!

Tomasso, Walt The SB-12 or SB-17 would work well......... SB-17 is later and has more features - bounce flash as mentioned, motor drive mode and the ability to do multiple flash photgraphy. Both of these flash units are TTL with the F3 and like your SB-16 have settings for Auto and Manual as well as TTL.

Tomasso: Nikon made the SB-12 compact electronic flash unit specifically for the F3 series, just like the SB-16A. However, the SB-12 is much smaller and lighter, with a guide number of 82. It provides only direct illumination, that is, it has no bounce feature. The SB-17 is another compact Nikon flash dedicated to the F3 series cameras. It also has a guide number of 82, but it does allow bounce flash. Neither of these flash units has TTL capability. Both are no longer produced, but might be found on the used market. Other manufacturers such as Metz, Sunpak, and Vivitar offer smaller flash units, but these require an adapter from the F3's unique mount to the standard ISO hot shoe.

I love my F3 and the pictures I take with my SB-16 flash are perfectly exposed. I want a smaller flash because the SB-16 makes me feel like a real photography nerd because it is HUGE! Any suggestions??? Tomassso
