This site is very informative and i must admit i am very impressed.Im am the owner of a small photosshop and i /we use the Nikon F as the Nikon F2 as well in our assignments ;the equipment has taken amongst min of 100-150.000 exposures EACH,together during the years and i find the quality of both as a photo user ,very outstanding.Nikon products is very strong !i never use the new products so much,Automatic focussing has given me some troubles in the past years,so i will say to everybody :;spend the money on the best F and F2 and you will never regret your decision.
happy newyear.

I mistakenly posted this query to the F2 message board when I should have put it here. My son is now the proud owner of a 1969 vintage F and badly needs a manual. If you have info on how to obtain one of these I will greatly appreciate it.

Hi, my name is Christian Maldonado Fisker and I am a full time photographer from Copenhagen, Denmark. I have just bought a Nikon MD-2 Motor for my Nikon F-2 Machine and find it marvellous, you can't get this quality anymore! I enjoy this sites very often and the photos is also inspiring as well !

Good reading , I feel like pulling the trigger for the big shots only by seeing it..* One main reason why I didn't hesitated to buy old gear was this great site - thanks to Mr Leo Foo and the folks out there !

Thanks ! keep up the good work! What at great site !

Morty Sklar: Other than some popular outets such as Ebay or online photo shops, You can also try here: It is quite popular and trade directly with the buyers.

Paul Reif : Check the various Nikon made flash models at: It starts from SB-1 to SB-20. The TTL is NOW possible with the Nikon F.

I have a black Nikon F with Photomic FTn and Nikkor 50mm 1.4 lens, plus leather case--for sale. Purchased in in 1974. Serial number is 7 digits and begins with 737. I've always kept it covered when not in use, and never used it heavily. It works fine.

Whoever reads this: If you're not in the market for this camera, do you know a place I could post it for sale? I've been looking around and this is the closest I could find--but I'm not even sure if offering it for sale here is allowed.

Thank you,
Morty Sklar

Can someone advise me as to which speedlights can be used with my Nikon F Photomic FTN. I am particularly interested in a handgrip type such as a SB-11,SB-5, 0r SB-17. Will the TTL types function in this mode with the F? What can I expect to pay for a unit that is complete and in working order.

My inquiry is about the Nikon SB-15 Speedlight. It differs from older hot-shoe flashes in that besides the main hot-shoe contacts, it has 3 little pins on the foot.

This little flash works great on my Nikon-F (which I got about a month ago). However, it doesn't work so well on other cameras. My Minolta SRT-200 has a standard hot shoe but pressing the shutter doesn't activate the flash. Other cameras (Minolta SRT-101, Rolleiflex MX) take a cord: I got a hot-shoe-to-cord-adapter (by Kalt, not the Nikon SC-10) and the SB-15 still doesn't work on them. (A Minolta 128 flash does work on all these cameras.)

I covered the three little pins with electrical tape and now the SB-15 works great with all my cameras.

Is there any other way to solve this problem? Is the flash defective?
