    Question About Changing Screens in Nikon F3P

    Is there any risk in changing the screen in the F3P while film is loaded in the camera? The owner's manual instructs on how to remove the prism and change the screen. No note or mention is made if this is to be avoided when film is loaded in the camera. I would image it is okay to do this with film in the camera, but I just wanted to make sure.

    There shouldn't be a problem because you have a mirror and shutter curtain blocking the light path.
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.

    No worries. The only risk to your film is accidentally pressing the shutter release while making the change

    Thanks, folks...I will proceed with my usual caution. I hope you are enjoying the holiday weekend.
