I read in Michael's article that the Nippon Kogaku/Tokyo top stamp on the F body ended somewhere in the 67xxxxx series. I have a black body F with the NKT stamp, ser # 72xxxxx. Now I am really confused about the manufacture date. Was it circa '70-71'or much earlier? Any ideas?

Hi all. I found someone on eBay with all kinds of Nikon Manual reprints. Send email to (sorry not hypertext). I just bought a Nikon FTn and got the Nikon F and Photomic T Manuals from him. Check eBay for other publications for sale, some on CD such as repair manuals.

I am an owner /operator of the the Nikon F (w/ 250 bulk loaded back) and have successfully used this unit for applications in cinematogragraphy. The bulkloaded F is an ideal tool to use for timelapse due to its abiltity to be be triggered to shoot 2fps, 6fps, etc... which I then tranfer to video. My work has been usewd in commercials etc...

I recently purchased a NC-2 INTERVELOMETER to use w/ my F but have run into problems with getting the proper cables/accesories to connect the intervelometer (NC-2).I am puzzled as to how the intervelomter drives the F (powerwise) during timelapse.
Do I need to find a relay box accesory w/ all of the proper cables? including external power supply?

I would greatly apprecite any input given so I can utilize this unique tool. If anyone has info on where to purchase these items it would also be appreciatted.
Thank you

I have an old Nikon F serial #70xxxxxx that is in need of a good FTn meter. I was not aware that the Wein batteries are not giving the correct 'charge' reading on the FTn meter. I was told they were the replacement type now available (1.3v). John

does anyone know of a place that will rent a bulk loader back for the Nikon F, as well as a Nikon F body with a motor drive? I'm working on a multi-media doc. project and am in need of one. if there are any other systems out there that would have this feature (bulk loader back & motor drive) i'd be interested in them as well, as well as any sites that are relevant.
thank you

This subject must be dead, as I couldn't find it using several search words. What are people using instead of the outlawed mercury battery for the Photomic meter for the Nikon F? Nikon used to recommend the Wein battery, but no longer recommends any battery. The Wein is better (more even voltage) than the alkaline batteries, but it still doesn't push the charge indicator to the full-charge position (my old mercuries used to push it past the full-charge indicator).

Or, if there is no ideal replacement batter for the mercury, how have people made adjustments in their Photomic meters or/and their Nikon Fs?

Thanks a lot,
Morty Sklar

Ed Brustle: IF you are confident with the camera setup (such as the condition and the range of lenses it came with it) - by all means take some good photographs for the auction. That certainly will add premium over the equipment with a visual confirmation. Next, after you are there, use places such as this malaysian site to announce it (it is free), and I am quite impressed and amazed with its traffic flow too, see here:

Michael Hall: You don't need a list. In fact as long as the Nikkor lens has a meter coupling shoe on the aperture ring, it can be used with any non-AI SLR camera bodies. Some lenses, such s the E series and the current range of AF lenses cannot provide metering for your Nikon F as they lack that "shoe" for mating with the camera's metering mechanism .
