I own cameras I like more, but if I had to keep just one camera it would be this one, the Nikon F3. I enjoy using it, and it’s so robustly built it should outlast me. I’ve refreshed my review of it; read it here.

    It took owning my third Nikon F3 before I really appreciated the camera. If they had put the FE2 meter display in the F3, it would be one of my all time favorites!

      The F3’s meter display seems to be the thing most often panned about this camera. It works well enough for me — not brilliantly, just well enough.

    The F3HP was my first “serious” camera, almost four decades ago (after playing a few years with some Praktica). A pricey camera then, often used by photojournalists. I have used the F3HP intensively for over ten years, and the camera has never let me down.

      A very good first serious camera. To borrow a slogan, the F3 takes a licking and keeps on ticking.
