Sticking ISO Dial on Nikon F3 Camera

  1. I have recently acquired two Nikon F3 cameras (one F3 with standard DE2 prism and one F3P). In both cases the ISO dial is very difficult to rotate. Any recommendations?

  2. The dial needs to be lifted slightly in order to rotate it. Are you doing that?

    It's page 21 in the manual.

  3. Yes, I have lifted and rotated the dial. Over the years, I have used probably 5-6 F3 cameras but this is the first time I have encountered this sticking problem.
  4. One problem I find with the F3 is the film speeds are on a adhesive label. This can ruck up and jam the mechanism. Nikon supplied a new improved part which I fitted myself one time. Mine was stuck almost solid.
