    If you have Nikon F100, what frame number does it start?

    I just acquired a used F100. If you have one, will you please tell me what frame # on negative images start?

    Mine starts on first frame straddling 0 and 0A and ends with 24 and 24A being the last shot. That makes total of 25 shorts for 24 exp film.

    Not that I am complaining of getting an extra frame, is this normal for this camera?
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    I used to have an F100 but honestly I don't recall. I will try and and look at some old negs I have that I shot with the camera and try to get back to you. I don't think this is something you have to worry about IMHO.

    This depends on the film too. My Canon EOS' start with films from nearly every filmmaker on frame 1 except some Rolleis from Maco; here they start at frame 0 because the frame numbers are aligned different.

    Thanks for replies, but I'm interested in hearing from folks who own F100, please. This body is a type where you position the leader at a mark and close the back. It's automatic.

    I wasn't aware the length of leaders and position of the numbers aren't standardized.... Thank you for pointing that out. I'm using Tmax400-2 24 exposure rolls..

    With HP5+ my F100 starts on frame 0a and ends on 36a, giving me 37 frames.

    I own three F100 bodies. What you are experiencing doesn't surprise me. I regularly get an extra frame on my 36 exp rolls. Wouldn't worry about it. Celebrate the added frame.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Thank you everybody. I'll sleep well tonight knowing my F100 is functioning as it should.

    I'll chime in with a late me-too. I sometimes get 37 instead of 36 with my F100, seems to depend on the brand of film I'm using. As I recall, Fuji print was one of them with the extra frame. No big deal. GREAT camera, by the way! I love being able to swap back and forth between it and my D200 without losing the familiar feel and with all the important controls being in more or less the same spot. It's also nice to be able to mix and match many lenses between the two--lots of versatility.
