Nikon F3H (High Speed) body

£12,000.00

Grade: NEW

RARE – COLLECTOR’S GRADE – POSSIBLY THE LAST BRAND NEW F3H IN THE WORLD! BOXED AND COMPLETE WITH OUTER SHIPPING CARTON, REAR SHUTTER GUARD (TO BE REMOVED PRIOR TO FIRST ROLL OF FILM INSERTION), AND INSTRUCTION MANUAL. In June 1996, Nikon released the Nikon F3H (the “H” stands for “high speed”), a single-lens reflex film camera intended for press photographers. Based on the Nikon F3 and its MD-4 motor drive, both of which Nikon had released in 1980, the F3H was capable of high-speed continuous shooting at up to 13 fps. Like the earlier F2H it uses a fixed pellicle reflex mirror that transmits 70% of the light through it to the film and reflects the remaining 30% into the viewfinder. The camera has the familiar HP (High Eyepoint) finder with accessory shoe and a type B focusing screen is supplied as standard. When the MD-4H motor drive is powered by an MN-2 NiCd battery, the camera is capable of high-speed continuous shooting at 13 fps at shutter speeds of 1/1000 second and above. When the motor drive is powered by eight AA alkaline batteries, the camera is capable of high-speed continuous shooting at 7.5 fps at shutter speeds of 1/250 second and above.
