Yes, Danielle, but it takes a different connection from other cameras. There is no hole in the shutter release button.... the collar around the button (inside of the advance/rewind selector) is threaded. You need to get an adapter that screws onto this thread and has the standard cable-release hole in the top. These are available at most camera stores. If you don't have a camera store in your area, you can probably find one of these at This same adapter is also used with early Leicas and a number of Twin Lens Reflex cameras. rick :)=

hi manel: i think it probably could, but i've never done it. soulds like a pretty big job, those things don't just pop out like they do in the nikkormats and FMs. of course, to restore a 64xxx it would be worth some effort.

I have a Nikon F 64xx with a damaged shutter:
Can it be replaced with the shutter from a 70xx F body ? Thanks for your help.

Hello, I am looking for a source for eyepiece correction diopters for my Nikon F cameras, ( 3 of them! ). Does anyone know where, or whether, these can be still found? Thanks, Peter

I have just pulled a Nikon F out of storage. Everything seems to work just fine, but I can't figure out how to get the film advance lever to go flush to the body. Is there a trick to this I've forgotten? Thanks!

Hi Robert: Nikon F's can have a variety of appearances and still be original. My own Nikon F, also a 67xxx serial number, is all black and has no light meter... plus, it has a motor drive attached to it (click the Url above). Does yours look something like this (with or without the bulky motor stuff)? Also, in the photo you can see a Photomic prism next to the camera. This prism has a chrome front, they were also made in black to match the all-black cameras. A Nikon F with the Photomic meter prism looks quite different from one with the plain meterless one, and of course it looks different with the motor too. There were a lot of variations over the F's 15-year production span, and many of them can be removed and interchanged among cameras. rick :)=

Afater I posted the last message, I discovered that this camera might be a Nikon F by Nippon Kogaku of Tokyo....and I discovered the larger site with information of all kinds. Is there anything unique I need to know as a result of having a Nikon F that is less (more?) than the original? Thanks

My Nikon F (#6724176) is totally black, with a pebbled leather black covering on the housing. It looks nothing like the silvery Nikon Fs pictured on the home page. I'd like to obtain aninstruction manual, and some advice on a light meter. Can anyone help? Many thnks.
