Hello all fellow FTN owners.What a great camera we own.I had the great luck of being a photographer while I was in the army in Okinawa.IN 1971 I purchased my FTN with a number lenses and accessaries and used it for everything from copy work to sporting events.Unfortunetly, I don't get to use it anymore. It's not that I don't want to,but my eyes can't focus as fast as they once did.By the time I finish focusing the shot is gone,plus the meter does not work,I've had it fixed once but it went bad again.What I need is a diopter.My Optomatrist tells me my eyesight calls for a -1 but I understand that the FTN's prizam has a built in -1.Does that mean I need a -2? Where can I find out for sure and where to buy them.I could also use the name of a good camara repair outfit that won't charge an arm and a leg for repairing the meter.Please someone HELP! thank you

The viewfinder lever switch (not the axle)on my F3 has broke off is there anyway to unscrew the old axle and replace it with a new axle and switch.

Hi Edward: Here's a rough starting point, just to help you get acquainted with your camera a bit: Load the camera with ISO 400 (color print) film, and follow these guidelines for exposure settings for your first roll:

Outdoors, daytime: Full sunshine, f/16, 1/500 In shade, f/5.6, 1/500
Indoors, daytime: Office light, f/4, 1/60 Home light, f/4, 1/30

See how that works out. You might want to get a hand-held light meter, though with print film you may find that you can do much of what you need without one (kind of depends on what you want to do). Also, run down to your local library and look for a how-to book on photography. This is free, and it will give you a good start. rick :)=

I recently purcashed a Nikon F used in a underwater housing with a Nikikor NC Auto 1:2.8 f 24mm lens. The Serial #124667 it seems to be the black body, but has a bigger viewfinder for underwater. I'm not sure how to operate it for it seems not to have a meetering system. I did a test out of water and it seemed to expose correctly at any shutter speed at f4. What is that about? Does anyone have some suggestions on how to figure out the opration of this camera?

Greetings from Sunny San Juan, Puerto Rico! I have two old motor drives an F36 and an MD-2, the later with an MB-1 battery pack and cabled MC-1 remote control, a 35mm f1.4 ED nikkor and an F3 body which I would like to sell to upgrade for a newer Nikon, possibly electronic. How and were can I best offer these items for sale?

In response to Laura (stampede467@yahoo.com) asking where to buy Nikon F screens: they're very plentiful. Try the auction site or better yet, go to www.keh.com. Look on this site to see the various types, as there are many.

Hi W Prinsloo: There is a market for your Nikon FTN's. The easiest way to get a reasonable price for them, if you can't do so locally, is through eBay (www.ebay.com). There are some complications in dealing internationally, but I have bought and sold to various countries that way over the past few years. You could also look for an F3 in the same place while you're at it. rick :)=

Greetings from South Africa I have 2 Nikon F Bodies with Photomic FTn finders of which I use one set on a regular basis. I am thinking of upgrading to a F3 and want to get rid of the above mentioned equipment and use the money to purchase my "new" F3 . Is there a market for these items even in collectors circles or am I a dreamer in thinking that any one wants "old" equipment such as this? What about prices? What can I expect someone to offer for the finders and bodies? What about the average price of a F3 in good working condition? Any ideas, suggestions or criticisms? Best wishes W Prinsloo
