Sorry, that should have been 6706559. Still 1966, though.

Hi Glen: Any standard strobe will work with the Nikon F, it's just a matter of your preferences. If you want to mount the flash unit on top of the camera you will need the hot shoe adapter - this will also eliminate the need for a PC cord to connect it. Without the adapter, you can attach a flash bracket to the bottom of the camera and put the flash on that, connecting it to the camera with the PC cord. Make sure that the synch selector (located just in front of the shutter speed dial) is set to "FX".

I just bought a 1974 Nikon Ftn black in minty condition. I'd like to know which of the many strobe/flash units would be best to buy? I've been looking for a new Vivitar 285 HV, but it must not be available anymore as I've searched B&H and Adomrama. Also, would I need the Nikon AS-1 adaptor? Thank you in advance for your replies.....

Hi Ken: If you've got the camera up on eBay, you're going to find out what it's worth pretty quickly. F prices vary radically, based on color, condition, manufacture date and the phase of the moon... and like other film equipment, they may now be eroding due to the impact of digital on the market. I have a nice black, 67xxx meterless F with the F36 motor drive on it. Based on prices I've seen I added up its value once at somewhere around $600-700..... but I bought it for $175 from a dealer who knew what it was. What your camera (or any older camera) is worth is very subjective. EBay is probably a good place for it though, because if it's a special camera with collectible interest, that's the most likely place for it to be seen by the people who will be most interested in it.

Hello to all! I have a 1969 Nikon F camera body with a light meter viewfinder currently up for auction on eBay. A lot of collectors are asking me a lot of questions about it! Apparently, it is of interest because the black paint is just about flawless, no brassing at all. It's in 100% perfect working order. I inherited it from my late uncle. Does anyone on this board have any idea what this camera is worth in US$? Thank you so much for your input!

I have a 1969 Nikon F and used to have a neon colored poster in the 80's of a Nikon F body (w meter on top). I lost it over the years and would love to get one again. It looked Peter Max like in bright colors. I worked in a gallery and used to sell this poster but now I can't find it anywhere in print books or online. Does anyone know where I could get one or who made it by any chance. This is a real trivia question but I'd love to get another one.
