Question about Nikon Cameras
Trying to open the battery compartment on a Nikon F model from later 1970's.
The camera itself doesn't have a battery. If you have a light meter in the finder however, then the battery for it is in the finder itself. Press the button the back on the left side while at the same time, push the lever over on the finder. That will release the viewfinder.
Look underneath and you will see the battery cap. Unscrew that and you'll see the compartment. If it is an old FTn finder, then it will likely take the mercury batteries that are about 1.35V. They don't sell those anymore as mercury is illegal in consumer batteries, but if you do a search on eBay for 1.35V WEIN cells you should be able to track down replacement batteries.
You could put Duracell PX625 batteries in, but they ar 1.5V and thus will give inaccurate meter readings.
