First before making a remarks, please amake sure you are at the right message board; your question is relating more to Nikon F2 camera trather than for Nikon F, the CORRECT MB for F2 is at: next, you are asking a rather technical question which I doubt Nikon will even BOTHER to answer; since you are in that "level" of skill and expectation, why don't you spend sometime help to answer some questions ?? I think this board need someone like you. Come to think about it, I think generally, Nikon users are more "conservative", the Canon folks are more open to Q& A; see an example here:

What's wrong? This is a great site except for one thing- Nobody responds to questions that appear here. My qusetion, for example, if you take the photomic finder off your F2, what voltage is measured accross the meter contact points? Any F2 owner could find out but nobody has anything to say.

What superb site,obviously the product of a long labour of love.
Whilst I never really regard equipment as anything mor than tools for the job,the F`s(and also the `Mats)have found their way to a special place in my heart and memory.
I used these excellent machines from the late `60`s to early `70`s,supplemented only by Leica`s for 35mm work.
Despite multiple dropping,drowning,dusting,and using them in extremely hostile(to a camera) environments,total running costs against the `F`s stand at two winding block`s,one meter repair to a Photomic Ft head,and annual servicing.
No camera,not even the vaunted Leica`s had this track record with me,not before or since.
You always knew,that you had the "shot" with an `F,you always knew what the shot would be like on the lightdesk,...never owned anything as intuitive to use,or as durable.
Legendary camera system,monumental memories,wonderfully evocative website......and yes I have still got one,kept for auld lang syne

How do I determine which Nikkormat I have..... I need to replace the case ..... 20 years. The camera has a near perfect pyramid, silver above the lense..... below of which says Nikkormat.

I'm looking for a new/newer case. After Europe and Australia, mines looking rather ratty. I believe it's a CF-4 Pouch.... but I'd prefer a black case.

Any help out there? Where do I order one. Thanks. Way cool camera. Got a life time of memories on this one.

Searching for a flash coupler, this part is attached to the camera on top of the film rewinding crank.

I have an FG in perfect condition EXCEPT it was dropped and hit the cement on the edge of the lens slightly denting the filter. The result is that the 'frames used counter' number is hung between 0-36 which means no metering system. The counter must read between 1-36 or no meter reading. I have tryed everything to get that dial to reset but is must be a broke spring ir lever. Is this model worth repairing? Gary

I have an early Nikon F2 photomic. The light meter is not working.
Does anyone know what voltage should be accross the contacts
at the top of the camera body? There is 3 volts in the battery box
but the voltage at the pins which contact the finder is 2 volts.
Is this the way it should be or has something caused loss of
the 3 volts?
Where is the best place to get the meter repaired? Nikon won't
service old models.

I have sitting before me a light meter from an F series camera. It is from a photographer I worked for 15 years ago. The camera it was originally used with was stolen so he gave me the meter. I have been looking for an F body to fit it, halfheartedly, for years, and now am looking a bit harder. It must fit a standard prism F, but I don't know for sure when the meter was made. The photo cell measures about 4" across and has serial#831084. Any help would be appreciated. Certainly love those mechanical Nikons from the 60s, 70s, 80s.

I have a Nikon F camera which looks most like the above far left picture. It belonged to a deceased family member. I was hoping you can help be obtain an instruction book on how to use this camera and lenses. Any help or suggestions you can give me would be appreciated. Thank you.
