F2 film counter, stay put or count up on rewind?

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by james_lai, Sep 15, 2005.

  1. I have two F2 bodies, one in the 76xxxx serial number range and the
    other in the 78xxxx range. When rewinding the film, the film counter
    on the 76 body stays put, but the counter on the 78 body continues to
    count upwards 'til it reaches about 32 or so (I've only used 24 exp
    film, so I have no idea what would happen if I loaded a 36).

    Both bodies work fine so I'm not concerned about one body being
    defective, but did Nikon make a change to the counter mechanism
    somewhere between these two serial numbers?
