Hello: You have a wonderful website! I have read several parts of it, especially on the F3. I own and use one almost daily. May I pose a simple question Please? I have a Sunpak 555 and the Interface Module NE-3D with the dedicated coupler cord EXT-11 for the F3HP. This gives the Sunpak 555 TTL capabilities with the F3. I also have and use an SB16A, also TTL. May I sync the two together for two TTL flashes at once? If so may I use the Nikon Sync cords that go with the SB16A or should I go with the Sunpak Sync Cords?

Hi there. I would like to know why I can't use the Sc-10 acessory with the F-3. I says everywhere (including here) that I must also use another adapter together with the Sc-10. Why is that? The idea here is to use the Sc-10 connected to the F-3 PC contact giving me a ISO hotshoe for using with modern flashes. Should this work? Why can't I use the Sc-10 adapter in the PC contact on a F-3 for giving me a ISO hotshoe for using modern Speedlights on it?

I am a bit worried that using this may damage my SB-28, although it seems just like a eletric connection with no circuits inside. Am I just too worried ? I thank you already for any help All the best Márcio Santos

Kevin, Your F3HP is the last of the Nikon professional series manual focus cameras. They were produced from about 1983 until production ended in 2001. Judging from your camera's serial number, it was produced in mid-1985. In mint condition today it would probably be worth in the range of $500-550. The last production models sold new for around $1400. The value of these cameras is slowly dropping due to the increasing popularity of digital cameras. It is an excellent camera, and if you wish to get into film photography, learn to use it. The lenses you have are both excellent quality. Regards, Walt

I stumbled across this web site and was hoping someone could help me out. I recently inherited a Nikon F3 HP camera with a few lenses. I know nothing about 35mm photography. The Camera says F3 and HP on the front and the serial number is 1694xxx. The camera looks like it has never been used. There are two lenses with the camera. A 28mm 2.8 and a 55mm 2.8 Both are Nikkor. It looks like it was an expensive camera at one time. I read through the owner’s manual and read the on-line info on this site, but not being SLR knowledgeable, I’m still a little confused. Can anyone tell me a little about how much it might be worth or how old it might be? Thank you.

Tom, Based on your serial number, your F3T was produced in late 1995. It's hard to tell the exact month since Nikon does not publish a list of serial number vs date of manufacture. Walt

I own two AIS lenses and recently bought a used F3T #T 8502932 - Can you please tell me the aproximate age my camera? For what it cost me, I could have bought two used FM3a's. I chose the camera because of the bright viewfinder and mirror lock-up. I want to use my Sunpak 555 with remote cord for close-up nature photos. If I am not interested in changing focusing screens, is there any advantage to the F3 over the FM3a as far as close-up work is concerned? Tom

I have resently purchased a Nikon f3 #1243171 on ebay. I would like to know what year it was made, and the history of the camera if possible. I plan to use it for astrophotography on a Celestron 8i scope. Thank you

I know this message site mostly deals with used F3's, but it should be noted that the end of an era is truly over. Even though Nikon ceased production of the F3 several years ago one was still able to purchase a new one at B & H in NYC-but no longer. I think that is it as far as the new ones.

Hi, First time I've posted here, as I've only just got the camer I've wanted for 20 years - a Nikon F3HP. Now I want all the bits, so I'm looking for a screw in cover for the flash sync terminal and, more importantly, a screw-in flash sync cord to fit the terminal. If you have anything to offer, please email me! Thanks.
