Could anybody tell me how to reset the ASA dial on the FTN meter - I stupidly removed the 3 screws and replaced the dial because the old one was in bad cosmetic shape - anyway now I dont know where my ASA should be or where it is now. I really did it.

I have what I thought was a Nikon F Tn photomic 1967. Mine seems to differ in that the little slide lever attached to the lens coupling doesn't have any numbers above it and no lever covering on the lever itself.
The ASA dial isn't marked with any arrow or dot for the setting and it squeaks when you turn it to the left.
It doesn't click when you change the setting, which I remember it doing.

Do I have the camera identified correctly? Any ideas about the ASA dial?

Hi, I have finally opened my dad's camera and here is what I found... It's a 1959 or 1960 Nikon F. Serial number: 6463880. The lens is a Nikkor-S Auto 1:1.4 f=50mm, Nippon Kogaku Japan No. 314710. It also has a Nikkon exposure meter SN 779108 and a kako Elite-5 transistorized electronic flash unit with monitor circuit. He purchased it while serving in the Airforce in Japan. When we went back in 1980, he purchased a Tamron adaptall-2 tele macro zoom lens 80-210mmF/3.8-4.

I always thought I would try to use it, but I have a Sony NEX3 and am confused by it, so really not into tackling my dad's camera. Would love to know the value of it and what your thoughts are on holding onto it versus selling it.

Would appreciate any feedback. Thank you.

I have acquired my fathers Nikon F Tn with 36F motordrive. I am looking for info on this camera with regards to How to Manual, Repair Manual, batteries, etc.
Any help you can send my way would be most appreciated. I believe this camera is a '68 model.
Thank you

Hi Ted: I'd keep an eye out on eBay. You can also check around any camera stores, especially older ones, in your area, but bear in mind that this camera has been out of production for 40 years - you're not likely to find anything that isn't used.

Hi Joe:

After 10 years on the shelf, the meter probably just needs cleaning - but yes, I'd have it done by a repair shop. If you don't know of any around Houston, there is a repair service directory at
