Stefan: If I can advise you - the current state in the used photo equipment market is a buyer's market because everyone is jumping into the digital gears (for a move that is too early and expensive). The heart of a SLR is the shutter. So, you should just return the camera and wait for another good set.

Hi, I have just taken delivery of a used F3HP. Everything is lovely except for some small dents/scuffs in one of the shutter curtains. These don't let any light through. I can return the camera. Does anybody think this is a cause for concern? Many thanks, Stefan

I have a used F3 HP, with a serial # 1708315, and I'm trying to find the approximate date the camera was manufactured. Can anyone direct me to a source. Thanks, Joe

I've recently heard a rumor that at one point there had been an MD-4P drive made for the F3P. It sounds rather doubtful to me, but I was hoping someone here could confirm or deny it officially. Thanks.

To Dan: Flash output can easily be reduced in automatic mode by an fstop smaller (i.e., higher number) than given by the reading at the backside of the flash. In manual mode, select an fstop smaller than given by the formula. In TTL mode, select the next higher ISO setting for the film at the scale than the one of the film in the camera. Slave units are available from, e.g., Metz Corp. in Germany; note that you have to ignite the slave unit by another flash.

I have an F3HP and just recently got my hands on a SB 16A and was wondering if there was any way to adjust the flash output, other than M, TTL, and MD. Someone told me to adjust exposure compensation on the camera but that does not make much sense to me. Also does anyone make an optical slave for the SB 12 or SB 16a?

"Tear" is hard to defined and I can only use my imagination to visualize the degree of damage done to it. The shutter curtain is Titanium coated, not fabric. Although it is delicate but should be very durable but not to the extend of abusing it with excessive physical contacts. As long as it is not shown with leakage that can observe via visual check before sending for opinion or replacement (Remove your lense, face the camera to a strong light source, turn the shutter speed ring to "T", check if you can see any light leak first to determine the damage). Naturally, the shutter is a piece on its own and I doubt Nikon is generous enough just to take all the trouble to change the curtain for you (that is how companies make profit from "after sales service"... haha). Good luck.

I have a slight tear in the fabric curtain in my F3. Has anyone had to have one replaced and/or do you know how much I might expect to pay to get this replaced? Thanks in advance

Torben: Very likely that your F3/T falls in 1982 - the same year that F3/T was introduced. Next, the original batch has a Limited Edition, so, if your camera comes with the 50mm f/1.4 with the serial number same with the camera body, that is it. If not, it is a standard production unit.
