The Best I have owned- Mathew Sebastian

  • Excerpt: "I bought my first Nikon F3 in 1981 as a replacement for my excellent but ageing OM2n. I had only a few AI lenses to start with, a 28mm, 80-200 , a 2x converter and a Panagor Micro 90mm/2.8. Over the years, I have also moved from film to DSLR and own the excellent D300s and some G lenses. Lately, I have been scanning my old collection with a Nikon IV scanner and am amazed at the quality of those photos I took in the 80's and feel that my skill/results ...

A reliable rock

Librelola, Ciao

  • Excerpt: "...new to say that the Nikon F3 is an excellent camera, indeed it has been known to be so to anyone who is interested in photography and has read a little about cameras. In my personal experience, the F3 has been a trustworthy friend that has accompanied me on many trips throughout the past 10 years. I bought my F3 over 10 years ago and it was second hand, I also have another Nikon camera and 2 Canons, but the F3 is the one I always chose when I ...
  • Pros: Sturdiness, image quality and reliability

End of an era...

  • Excerpt: "I first experienced the Nikon F3 back in 1984 when I asked to see it back in a (now sadly closed down) profession camera dealer and I would have purchased on the spot if I'd have had the £600 asking price. But being a poor student, I was just dreaming then... Well, things change and i ended up being employed by Jessops for thirteen years as a Sales Assistant (then right up to Manager) so I eventually had the chance to use an F3 and consider it the ...
  • Pros: Fantastic build quality, superb handling, access to Nikon's legendary range of lenses, capable of virtually any assignment, total "systems"camera
  • Cons: Slow 1/80 sec flash sync, idiosyncratic position of hot - shoe,dull (by modern standards anyway) viewfinder, metering pattern takes getting used to, this is NOT a point - and - shoot camera .

I wish I'd had one all along

  • Excerpt: "The Nikon F3 is perhaps the ultimate professional camera. Being a manual focus camera, some high level of attention is needed to bring off good photos, but the optics and built in metering system are very helpful in that regard. With several exposure modes, from fully manual up to fully automated, the camera will allow for many levels of photographic expertise. An extensive line of lenses and other accessories make for a system you'll not likely outgrow. ...

  • Conclusion: Att använda: 4 Hållbarhet: 5 Min F3 . är dock inte HP modellen som är favoriten , men har nog passerat 4 stycken i mina händer under alla år , så de är en återkommande kamera i min ägo. Men jag får nog säga att detta är min klara favorit av alla analoga kameror förutom då klassic F2. som är stråt vassare . F3:an är en kamera som håller och slutaren fungerar utan problem.
  • Pros: Hållbar , både då du kört den utan motor , eller med motor men otroligt fin kamera och känslan i den tidlös !
  • Cons: Svår att hitta billiga F3:or i förhållande till andra analoga kameror. inga minus i mina ögon.

  • Conclusion: Att använda: 4 Hållbarhet: 5 Har brugt modellen siden omkring 1980. Uopslidelig. Har dog kun et tilbage, da et er blevet stjålet.
  • Pros: Styrke, alsidighed og stort Nikon-system.
  • Cons: Ikke observeret.

  • Conclusion: En kamera som heter duga, rätt vikt, rätt stil och självklart helt analog en fröjd att arbeta med och en fröjd att äga
  • Pros: Robust, lättarbetad, rund sökare baktill som de digitala kamerorna borde ha
  • Cons: Finns inga

  • Conclusion: Att använda: 4 Hållbarhet: 5 Helt fantastisk kamera, perfekt tyngd, man behöver verkligen inte oroa sig över hållbarheten. Allt känns otroligt gediget och slagtåligt. Underbar på nästan alla punkter. Har hittills bara skjutit två rullar med den, men många, många fler lär det bli.
  • Pros: Mycket skarpa, fina bilder med Nikkor 50 f/1,4
  • Cons: Svårt att se ljusmätaren ibland.
