    Nikon F3P with MD-4... Not fully functional.

    Looks like the F3P that I bought recently isn't repairable at a cost-effective price. Cosmetically, it's decent. Some brassing in spots and a corner dent on the baseplate. Winds and fires just fine, but doesn't have a shutter speed above 1/60. LCD displays speeds up to 1/2000, but if you fire the camera with a shutter tester, it's 1/60 all the time. Below 1/60, it's fine. I had it overhauled to get it working, but the shop that did the repair work could only get it partially working. Took it to another shop, and their diagnosis is that the camera needs a shutter. Already have over $450 into the camera, including the original purchase price, but can't spend another $280+parts, and tax on it.

    $175.00

    Yes, I know it seems high, but it does have a good number of F3P specific parts on it, and could be a decent shelf queen if someone wanted to let it sit. Price includes the MD-4 and a MC-12B cable. 50/14 and AS-17 shown in pic aren't for sale, unfortunately. Does have a BF-1a cap that comes with it.

    Now parting said camera out.

    DE-5 finder, would be EX grade except for the bottom rubber gasket being mostly missing and some paint wear below the latches on the sides of the finder. Glass is clean, hot shoe works fine. KEH wants $149 for their BGN grade DE-5. How about $100.

    MF-6B back. Nice condition, but seems to be intermittent in sending the signal to the drive. Worked fine on my F3HP, but seems to be a little rattly and not doing what it's supposed to do on the F3P. Same motor drive between the two. $20 due to the loose guts.

    Top covers - some brassing, but no dents. 9012258 is serial number. $35 for both

    Shutter release button parts - lock ring, retainer ring, shutter release button itself, rubber gasket... Retainer ring is a little chewed up. Dunno, maybe $25?

    If someone wants the whole thing as a parts camera or something to display on their shelf, $130 + shipping takes it. Will receive the body with the DE-5 finder, MF-6B back, but no screen. Again, camera works, except for the shutter speeds above 1/60. Has new magnets for the shutter release mechanism installed.

    Anything else, feel free to ask about. Will have pics of everything later today.

    MF-6B has been sold. Shutter release parts are pending. I also do have the late version AE Lock button. $5+ship.

    Pics of DE-5 are attached. Will get pics of the other parts tomorrow. Now that the camera is no longer in one piece, I can get pics of the individual pieces.
