The Nikon F3 was Nikon's third professional SLR body, preceded by the F and the F2. Introduced in 1980, it had manual aperture priority modes, and featured a plethora of accessories, including removable viewfinders (the camera can be shot from the top screen, or from the viewfinder). It was the first of numerous Nikon F-series cameras to be styled by Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro and to include a red stripe on the handgrip – a feature that would later become (with variants of stripes and various other shapes) a signature feature of many Nikon cameras.
It was the first Nikon camera to include an LCD screen in the viewfinder, and featured 1/2000th shutter speed, aperture priority and full manual modes, and an amazing built quality. It remained in production (with several variants) until 2001.
This variant is the F3 HP ("high point") which features a better viewfinder. The entire image can be seen 2.5cm from the viewfinder, making it more usable by those who wear glasses when shooting, or in high glare/sun situations.Please check the various lens options !
