leonard, I noticed you have add and changed some of the content in this F3 site, I am wondering would it be more convenient for all of us if you can published the changes in sections that related at the MB for us to browse around. Thus far, I have noticed a few significant changes at the Nikon F3-P and F3H and the main index page. I have also you are using Nikkor lenses to reflect the respective generations of the professional F series (good idea - especially the MF Nikkor site is up and running now). Have a propserous Business YEAR of the MONKEY!

I would like some information on a Nikon FE. If I am in the wrong place please accept my apologies. I also own, use and treasure my two F3HPs. The battery compartment in my FE has a metal hinge tyoe spring which is broken and hence prevents good contact with the battery. I would like to fix it properly but the repair guy said I would need a whole new battery chamber and he can't get one. By the way he is a great guy. How can I fix it the right way, find the part etc? This is truly the BEST web site .PERIOD. Thanks in advance and if I need to be redirected please help.

Nikon Lover,
Rick

Hi, New to the form and hope this has not been beaten to death by others. I did do a search and found nothing. The F3 is dead. I have no metering and have no shutter except the manual override. The batteries are showing 1.45 volts each. Should I get some power indication with 2.9 combined volts? Any recomendations for service on the east coast. I am in Fl. Thanks in advance JOhn

The "G" series Nikkor lenses will physically fit on the F3 series cameras because they have the Nikon "F" lens mount. They will not be useable, however, since you will have no way to control the aperture of the lens. Walt

Correction to my Jan 3 posting. Should read: I have not tried a "G" lens on my F3. Sorry, typing too fast.

Michael: By "use" I assume you mean "meter" as opposed to focal length or other lense characteristics. Unless you have a F3AF autofocusing is not a concern so most AI spec or later lenses will directly couple and meter. I understand the new "G" series lenses will not meter (no aperature ring), however, I have tried a G on my F3. You might look at the F3 history/description in this website or the sections in this website on Nikkor lenses. You might also find your answer at: www.members.shaw.ca/nikonfaq/index.html Look at section 3.2 in Section 3- Lenses. This site contains a description of each version of the F-mount lens and with what camera body the particular variation was introduced for. IMHO this desciption is very helpful.

Michael, in principle, just about any Nikon 'F mount' lens be it the non-AI (via stopped-down metering), AI, AIS, AF-D and non-D AF lenses, AF-I and the Nikon Series E lenses can be mounted on and be used with the F3. The key word to incompatibility with the F3 is the 'G' type AF lenses because they have no aperture rings hence you are not able to adjust aperture the traditional way. The 'G' lenses, although an 'F mount', are designed for autofocus Nikon bodies.

Ken, There were several Polaroid backs made for use with the F3 series cameras. The most convenient is the NPC back. It's currently listed on B&H Photo's website for about $600 new and $375 used. See http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=productlist&A=details&Q=&sku=38588&is=REG There were two others made by the Japanese firm Mikami. Not sure if these were usable with the F3 since I've only seen them with the F and the F2. They were the Polaroid Magny 45 and the Polaroid Magny 100. They were very large and probably could not be conveniently used handheld. Had some quirky optics which magnified the 24x36mm frame size up to 3.5 x 4.75 inches. The one from B&H seems the only usable version. Walt

I have acquired 3 NIKON camera bodies, with the following Serial numbers FM 3313879, 7297825, 7429384. Apart from these numbers, which I am assuming are serial numbers, there is no other identifying names etc, apart from Nikon? Any ideas as to how I can identify, name etc ? Would appreciate any help or advice. Thanks
