    Nikon-made bulk-loading cassettes

    I have some Nikon cassettes that I bulk-loaded for use in my F; Does anyone know if these cassettes will work in the F2? Thanks so much

    I would bet not, as the key that closes the F back to the body also opens the cassette. As the F2 has a hinged back, I imagine that there is no mechanism to perform that function. But I'll wait for someone who actually owns an F2 to chime in!

    There was a 36-exposure cassette for the F2, it was Nikon model AM-1. Whether these are the same exact cassettes as those for the F, I don't know. However, the F2 does have an open-close key, as you can see in the fifth picture on this page.

    Thanks rthomas. I believe mine are AM-1's. Now I can think about getting a F2.

    the f2 also keys cassettes -- that's why you have to turn that little handle thingy on the bottom to open the back. I sincerely doubt Nikon would have made a different cassette --- backwards compatibility was more popular back then.

    Leica did a similar thing -- black knob Leica film cassettes will only work in LTM cameras, but those with chrome knobs were made so they work in both LTM and M.
