SOURCE: 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...

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.

I have a Nikon FM3 and the shutter opens at the correct speeds but when I put B&W film in it (Kodak TX 400) and develope the film, there is nothing on the film like it was brand new. Help please.


Check to make sure that the film is properly inserted into the take-up spool, and watch the rewind knob and make sure it is turning indicating that the film is going through the camera. Also check to make sure that the multi-exposure lever isn't stuck in the on position by spillage or impact so the camera just keeps taking exposure on one frame and the film doesn't move.

When I turn my camera on it automatically flips to show the exposure compensation button. The only way I can get it to go away and take a photo is to push the lock button and then it lets me take a photo....


Why don't you push the exposure compensation button (the one that's half-black/half-white with a plus and minus) make sure the setting is on "0" and push the button again to turn it off.

I am borrowing a Nikon F3 35mm film camera but I am having issues with the exposure meter. When I adjust the shutter and aperture to the appropriate dials the meter will say +- but when I double check it...


This is normal. The meter is extremely accurate and as long as you're very close to getting the "+ -" indication then you're good to go. Half stop positions are available on the lens aperture scale precisely to help you get the metering close enough.

Negative film has a wide exposure latitude and exposure errors of just half a stop will not be noticeable in any way on the final print. Even errors of one stop will often be insignificant as the printing stage gives the opportunity to compensate for errors at the exposure stage. It's a different matter with slide film though as there is no second stage but even then you need to be aware that the meter indication is a centre-weighted average of what's on view in the finder. So as long as you're paying attention to important highlight and shadow details you can use the meter as an indication and base the actual aperture and shutter speed on informed judgement.

You may also want to look at an online user manual for the F3: http://mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/nikonf3ver2/f3manual/index.htm

I hope that you've found my answer to be of some assistance and only ask that you return the favour by rating my answer.

Nikon F65 35mm how to change the aperture


If the lens has an aperture ring, it must be locked at the mininum aperture (largest F/number). In PSAM modes use the command dial (possibly in conjunction with the exposure compensation button) to change shutter speed/aperture.

Exposure inconsistency with 18-200mm on my Nikon D300


A plus-or-minus one-third stop is perfectly normal if you're handholding the camera, especially when metering a high-contrast subject such as a lit lamp. If you really need to lock the exposure, use the exposure-lock button or set the camera to manual.
