To Ian: I use the H3 screen with my F3 & 80-200 F4 + TC-201 in bright light, but the view is a bit tricky. Honestly no F3 screen will offer a decent view with such combo. I have tried the P,R,E and G2 but only the matte / fresnel areas on the P,R and E could offer any aid to focussing, although with some difficulties. Roz

I own a Nikon F3 with along with several nikkor lenses, one being the 80-200 f4 AIS. I wish to use this with a TC-201 teleconverter. I have heard the standard focusing screen may not be the best for use with this combination. Could anyone offer advice on which screen would give the best results. Regards, Ian

To Fredrik: Assuming the batteries are in good condition, the F3 with MD-4 should fire continuosly even without film. Roz

I recently bought a used MD4. When trying it out, I discovered that it only advances one frame in continuous mode, even when the trigger is kept pressed down. Is this because I did not have any film in my camera when I tested the drive? I do not want to waste film just in order to test it Thank you /Fredrik

Jessica, For a PDF copy of the F3HP manual you can go to http://24.237.160.4/files/photography/Nikon/Manuals/F3Book/f3bk.pdf Or, you can find the same webpage through www.nikonlinks.com/f3.htm. There are two references for the F3 manual. The reference for the PDF copy of the manual indicated above is listed as authored by "unknown." Frankly, your best bet might be to take your F3 to your local camera shop or camera repair shop. Most camera shops are fairly helpful and will check functioning for you and give you a brief lesson. F3s have been around since 1980 and someone in most camera shops will probably have owned one at some point in time. Also, their developing and printing is far superior to the one-hour places.

I would not take your F3 to one of the national big electronics big boxes. The sales people in the all-in-one video / CD/ DVD/ audio/ cell phone big boxes probably have never heard of an F3, much less be able help you with its operation. Good luck

Ohhss.. Linda, my mistake, you are asking a question on SB-26, old man with a blurry eyes.. Sorry.

Linda, there is a copy of the SB-16A at this page: http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/nikonf3ver2/flash/sb16ab/manual/index.htm The difference between a SB-16A and SB-16B is the "B" version has a standard ISO type flash foot while the "A" has a dedicated N9kon F3 mounting foot. BOTH flash models are the same in their respective spec and way of handling. Help it helps. TIM, yes, I agreed with Mike's reamrks, f/22 is simply too small of a an paerture for flash - perhaps it is only possible to use when the subject distance is withing few feet and/or using a bounce reflector for close up works. In most cases, even if it operates in AUTO mode, it will "burn" the image with wash-out details. TTL is not entirely fool proof.. it does has a few limitations too.
