Third iteration of Nikons professional line-up. Released in 1980, introduced a new era for Nikons SLR cameras. Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, the F3 was the first camera to sport the famous red accent line and set the tone for the following Nikon models.

Fully manual and aperture priority modes, interchangeable finders and backs, LDC readouts and most importantly... THE smoothest film advance in any camera. We can't recommend this camera enough. 


This example is fitted with the normal DE-2 finder and shows obvious signs of previous use. It has definitely seen some use in its previous life. Everything fully tested and working as it should. One small note here is that the LED for the selftimer does not seem to turn on even though the selftimer works correctly. So no visual indicator. Priced accordingly of course. Great user camera to enjoy!
