Hi Maureen: The Tn and the FTn are two different prisms. You have the Tn. The Tn is basically the same as the original T prism except that the T was averaging and the Tn had a center-weighted metering pattern. In both, you have to set your maximum aperture against your film ASA speed when you change lenses. The FTn was the next one after the Tn... it added the "automatic" aperture indexing system where you turned the aperture ring back and forth through its entire range after mounting a lens, and this set the meter correctly for that lens. This is the prism with the shorter slot in the front.

I have a Nikon F camera (serial number is 6852578) and I am looking for a owners manual. If anyone knows where I can obtain one, please e-mail me at my e-mail address ( Also I am somewhat confused on my model/prism. If I look at a picture of the Nikon F Photomic T (1965) my camera body and prism look exactly like this but according to info on the Nikon F Photomic Tn (1967)this is what I have because I have an engraved "N" behind the indicator/switch. However, when looking at the Nikon FTn the front of the camera head (chrome area in front of prism head with prong) has the short slot where mine has a longer slot across the chrome area. Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!

I thought I would share a means of cleaning Nikon F Screens. Other brands may work as well but I've been using the iKlea materials from Apple Computer intended to clean then remove the residue from computer screens. The "polish" component appears to be a lint free cloth saturated with some sort of alcohol while the other is the same (?) lint free cloth with no alcohol. Good luck!

I have a cap of some kind which has wandered into my collection of Nikon Fs. It appears to be a lens cap and is of the push on type (no threads). It is labelled Nippon Kogaku, Tokyo, and is approximately 1 13/16 inches in outside diameter. Lens cap for Nikon rangefinder? I can't get it to come close to fitting any F bayonet lens.

Hello, I'm looking for the metal cap which goes over the frame counter disc and (if I'm not wrong) also holds the advance lever in place. If you happen to have that part, I'd be glad if you could contact me at the email appearing here. Thanks ! Taffer (aka Oscar)

Hello, I have a nikon mh-1 quick charger and a couple of rebuilt batterys, the charger is putting out about 13 volts dc when on but I have not seen any activity from the red lights on the front of the unit. Do these serve to inform you that the batterys are done charging? If so I may need to run the batterys down they are in full charge now. Thanks rick...

Hi Peter: The mirror is retained by 2 clips at the bottom/front corners; these are held by screws from the underside, which are (sort of) accessible when the mirror is locked up. Getting a mirror might be more of a trick; you may have to cut one yourself. You should be able to get 1mm thick front-silvered mirror stock from Edmund Scientific; also, cheap models of Polaroid cameras (the ones that shoot the print out the bottom front edge) are popular sources of good quality mirror stock.
