Why does my f3 show 1,80th of second after frame number1?


That is the mechanical shutter of the Shutter Speed used when your battery is dead.

That little Black Level in the front is used to trip the shutter.

Nikon f3 shutter release and light meter


there are a number of things that could be causing this and none of them are good. The impact could have torn the main circuit. If it hit on the rewind side there is an expensive glass disk (glass is used for temperature stability) called a FRE that has contacts on it for the ASA and aperture information to be sent to the main circuit. This is easily broken. You may also have damaged the shutter speed unit or its flex.

Shutter release button on my F3 is stuck (locked) and shutter speed is locked at 1/60. Works fine when camera is attached to a motor drive, but not otherwise.


Hi,
When the batteries in an F3 die, though the film can still be advanced, the photographer is limited to a single mechanical shutter speed of approximately 1/60 second. It is tripped by a secondary fully mechanical shutter release. Works fine when camera is attached to a motor drive because it uses the drivers power...Pls replace the batteries as one of the following is okay.....
  • Battery: Choice of one 3V lithium battery CR-1/3N type,,
  • two 1.55V silver-oxide batteries SR-44 type, or
  • two 1.5V alkaline batteries LR-44 type
Hope this helps!
Take care and please

I have an old Nikon FG 35mm Camera that I haven't used for a long time. It worked fine when I put it away, however now after loading new batteries and film, I can't ****/reopen the shutter, film doesn't...


Were the old batteries left in when you stored it? Alkaline cells can leak and cause corrosion, no matter what anyone says. A coating of metal salts on the battery contacts could be the problem. I hesitate to suggest that you may have put the cells in the wrong way up, or forgotten where the on/off switch is, but these will certainly stop the cameras working.

I can't change the aperture setting or time value in all (tv, av, M) modes - turning the wheel only changes the exposure compensation (-2 to 2) scale. Nothing else changes. I've read the manual a million...


Hello,

Try this.

Turn the command dial on the top of the camera to [AV]
Use the [main dial] next to the shutter button to adjust the aperture.

The rear button that is round that is marked 'Av +/-' is the shift button. This controls the exposure compensation.

Could you be turning the wrong wheel?

Hope this helps.

On/off switch


The Dial on the top, there is a red icon, it is the OFF button, any other button is swithched ON. Altough it doesn't matter at all because the only way the camera is ON is whenever you are flashing or shooting, or presing the shutter button halfway.

My N60 won't power down


On Nikon cameras the ON/OFF button is more of a safety-catch for the shutter that a power button. Does it correctly disable the shutter button when turned to OFF?
