    If the issue is that you need a replacement button, you can consult a repair service or look for "Parts" bodies on line.

  3. You are right Sandy, exposure button is built into the camera but mine fall off :( Its a common problem with the early F3 as i read on the net. So any service or shop offering parts for the F3? Thanks
  4. I heard that too. Igor may be I have the button.
  5. Igor! I have an F3 body which was bad. I had it in one of the boxes I packed when I moved. I need to find it and then I need to figure out how to remove the button. If I do you can have the button for just the shipping cost.

  6. Hello Bubu! Thank you very much, so i think that the later bodies of the F3 have a push in type of button, but i dont know how to remove it, if its the older types, it has something like a washer pin inside the body, so the whole body needs to be opened. I really dont know whats the difference, maybe someone who knows will tell us. Thank you.
  7. If you are in the US then for $15 shipping cost I would send the camera body to you and let you figure it out how to do the transplant. Send PM if you're interested.
