Very well organized information on the Nikon F3. I am a F3 user too. Is it true that the camera also has a instant film back for quick view ? How reliable and accurate is that accessory ? Any fellow user that has similar experience ? Just toying with an idea for an important assignment.

A remark adds on to the excellent explantion Walt given to Elbert: AF Nikkor lenses (EXCEPT for the stupid G-Series AF-Nikkors) carry basic AI-S specifications and they should also be grouped under same category of AI-S, so, they works just fine as well with all F3 series bodies.

"In A mode, it always shows 2000s in the finder..." Check the lens to see if the lens is mounted correctly and ensure the metal metering ring is rotatable (remove the lens and use your finger to turn it to see if it rotates freely). Next, check if the tab has been set to upward position (this will not make the lens couples probably with the metering ring on the lesn mount). If it does, use your finger to turn in down.

"...In M mode, all speeds are showing over-exposed(M+). Is this internal circuit problem?..." Try the above method first. If everything is alright, turn the lens aperture from its smallest aperture to the maxiumum and check if the LCD indication changes. Although it rarely happens as the F3 is a very reliable camera but If problems still persist, why don't consider sending the camera for a checkup ?

Does anyone know how many F3AF were made. I know that they started manufacture in 1983 and that camerabodies have the 83... prefix. My body is 1116. Thanks

My Nikon F3HP has a metering problem. In A mode, it always shows 2000s in the finder. In M mode, all speeds are showing over-exposed(M+). Is this internal circuit problem? Appreciate your kind help! Henry

Elbert: The AI (Automatic Indexing) lenses were designed to use with the F2 series, the FM, FE and onwards. The AIS lenses were modified AI lenses for cameras with programmed automatic exposure, such as the N2000, N8008 and the F4. The F3HP was designed for the AI lenses, but the AIS lenses will work just as well. I have both and there isn't any difference with the F3HP.Walt

Joe, There's the F3, the F3HP, the F3AF, the F3T, the F3P, and the F3H, but no F3S. Where did you see it? Walt
