That one might need lubrication inside the camera body.

First thing to check....how old is your battery? First replace the battery, then go from there.

Camera doesn't turn on


Try to clean the corrosion off the battery contacts. If not give it to Nikon they may be a little expensive but they will restore the camera to it's original condition.

Can Nikon F3 lenses be used on a digitial Nikon body?


Yes and no. The lenses will fit with no problem.

On DX cameras (everything except the D700 and the D3 series) the smaller sensor causes the lenses to seem longer. A 50mm lens on a digital body will give you about the same image as a 75mm lens would on a film body.

Older non-CPU lenses do not have the electronics to communicate with a newer camera. On some of these cameras you won't be able to use the camera's light meter.

Nikon f3 hp light meter wont work


I'm interested in this as well. Just installed fresh batteries, light meter says 1/80 in all shutter settings faster than 1/60 (otherwise it shows the correct setting). Since 1/80 is the flash sync speed, it may be that the camera thinks there's a flash attached. But it is not...
Strange thing is that one time (I tried a couple of times today) the light meter worked correctly; it showed other timings and they changed as I turned the aperture ring...

How do I put the neg and Pos 1.5 batteries in Nikon F3


If you undo the battery cap and pull it out , then hold it under a bright light you will see a picture of the batteries with their orientation depicted on the side of the plastic sleeves that will hold the batteries. Look for the shape of the batteries and make sure you load them in that same orientation.

Once loaded, remember that you need to pull the advance level back about 20 degrees to activate the power and the light meter.

Love my F3 but ready to go digital....


Hi!
I think if you want to keep it fun and easy you won't go wrong with a D80. All considered, it's a competent package compatible with the autofocus lenses you may have for your F3. If you can spring for it, a D90 is much more appealing.
As for your F3, I suggest you keep it. There's nothing like the clack of an analog SLR.
Hope this helps!
