New to the list....I've recently aquired a Black Nikon F complete with eyelevel finder but the nameplate is a chrome one. Does anybody have a black nameplate for sale or trade? or can you recommend a dealer who might assist.....many thanks.

I am looking for an original owners manual for my 1963 Nikon F and the supplement for the Photomic meter finder.

This question is regarding the flash mount on the Nikon F. I use a Vivtar 283 flash which is a heavy unit. The stardard little coupling-thingy that attaches the flash to the camera body doesn't seem able to handle the weight and bulk of the Vivitar very well. There is lots of play and wobble, and at times the flash almost sides off. Does anyone know if there is a better coupling to use to attach the flash. Or, should I simply purchase a flash bracket to use? Thanks

I know this is a dumb question, but what kind of film does a Nikon F from 1963 use? Thanks in advance.

Dear Friends, What a lovely group this is - so informative. I hope soon to be the proud owner of a Nikon F with a photomic T prism. Can you please tell me how I check that it is metering properly? Thanks a lot John Winfield

For those who need the mercury PX625 for your camera's meter, there is one source left that I know of. Go to: http://www.px625.com

Ahh, now I feel like a jerk off. I spend a week, taking really great photos in general, in school mainly, but photos that when developed would truly rule, then I just realized this morning, I must've load improperly, because I didnt see the wind- weel move at all. Fortunately, most of these photos can be re-taken with no problem. Hopefully these will be as good as the ones that I thought I took would've looked. Now, for my criticism on the nikon F. Well, I got the light meter finder. A few months ago I screwed up a bit when the background was bright, like a window in a relatively darker room. So now I know how to compensate properly to get better results, so my subject for example isn't under-exposed. I like using this particular SLR since it is quite ruged, and if you know what you are doing you can do great stuff with it as old as it is. I hate when people refer to this camera as on of thos old fashioned cameras, or some ignorant thing like that. I've gotten quite a few to understand the greatness of this camera, especially this model. Just out of curiosity, is there a way to order titanium foil in bulk? This has nothing to do with the camera, but I just wanna try to get my hands on it, sounds cool.

when there is no film in the camera, does the red dot still turn? Does the re-wind thing turn when the film is being advanced?

I have a Nikon F camera with the F36 motor drive and cordless battery pack. The problem is its missing the 'terminal adapter', the little angle piece of metal that attaches from the battery pack to the motor drive. Its very hard for me to get one. I believe I can build it myself out of aluminum, but the problem is there is 3 wires on the terminal adabter and I don't know how to wire it. 3 wires on the motor drive and a jack on the motor drive that looks like a flash jack. Does any body know how to wire it?
