The Nikon F2 for me is the best mechanical film camera ever produced. The only electrical or battery- dependent part is its metering. Meaning to say, even without batteries, the F2 should work and take pictures on all shutter speeds. Most probably, the F2 that you bought has a non-working photomic meter finder due to a defective ring resistor, a part that is usually the first thing that would fail on this camera. What, then, are your options? One, have the meter fixed by a competent manual camera technician. Two, buy a working Photomic finder and replace what you have. Three, buy or use a handheld meter. Four (the least expensive), use the sunny 16 rule. As added reference, here's a link that might help enlighten you more about how the F2 metering works: http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/nikonf2/prisms/dp11/index.htm

Hello, I recently purchased a nikon F2AS, it was in top condition, except there was no battery in the meter. Installed a new battery, and it occurred to me that the metering in the viewer was not clearly...


In Canada the cost of such repair would be about $100.00. I'd suggest not attempting the job yourself because the meter and shutter will need to be timed and a repair facility would have the necessary tool for doing this. An internet search will reveal several service places other then Nikon to have this done. I've even seen auctions on e-Bay selling service and had a Canon A 1 serviced. If the camera is in otherwise good condition and you enjoy the creative aspects of a manual film camera then you have a great classic to work with.

Instruction manual for settings on a Nikon F2?


Set the film speed with the dial on top of the Photomic unit. Lift the chrome ring and turn so that the film speed is next to the little red arrow.
Yes, the aperture is set by the lens ring. And if you have one of the older finders which uses the prong meter connection, whenever you mount a lens you must turn the aperture ring all the way to the highest number, then back to the lowest number. For old-timers, this is known as the "Nikon twist". It tells the meter system what the widest aperture of the lens is so that it can measure light properly at full aperture.
Yes, the shutter speed is set by the dial on top. The Photomic meter sits on top of it, so you read the shutter speed from the scale on the side of the Photomic dial by the mark on the back.
The other buttons on the front are the lens release button (left side as you hold the camera), DOF preview (button just under shutter release), mirror lock-up (lever ring around DOF button) and self-timer (long lever at bottom).
The T-L ring serves to protect the shutter release from accidental push. If you lift the ring and turn the mark to L, the shutter release is Locked. If you lift and turn to T, it prepares the shutter for Time operation, where the shutter remains open when released without holding the button down as you do at the B speed setting.

Finally, the most help: you can download the manual for free (donation requested, and worth it) at http://www.butkus.org/chinon/nikon/nikon_f2_photomic/nikon_f2_photomic.htm

Nikon Pop-Up Flash stuck


I would not lubricate anything on a camera if you are not a camera repair man. The last thing you want is liquids working there way into places they don't belong.

It sounds to me like you may have a worn part. If someone advises you do do any disassemble to make the repair, don't. Take it to a camera repair man. I know of what I speak! In the 60's, a screw fell out one of my lenses for my Nikon F Photomic. To replace the screw, I had to first remove another part. By the time I finished, the whole lens was in pieces on the table. It cost over $150 to fix (1965 dollars). The repair man told me that if I had left things alone and brought the assembled lens and screw in, it would have cost $10 for the repair.
