    Crap. To many damn models, variations and flavors to keep track of. It's an F2 with a big honkin view finder on top, why does Nikon have to be so complicated. I think it might be the F2AS, there is a square piece on top that has a +> <- and two lights over those showing over/under exposure. There is a little window in the front face just over the lower case "n" in Nikon that I still haven't figured out because it doesn't change when the aperture is changed and it looks like "18*" inside of it. If you couldn't tell, I'm a novice with these Nikons.

    If its an AS it will have the letters AS on the lower right front, if you remove it it will have DP-12 on the sticker next to the eyepeice.
    Sounds like a DP-1 or DP-2

    I looked under the finder and there is a tag saying it is a DP-2.

    Aha, eureka. Now all I have to do is remember that.

    BTW, Photomic means the finder runs on nuclear power.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    The F3HP image is slightly brighter, not dimmer, but it is slightly smaller than the image you get with the non-HP finder.

    I find the HP finder easy to use with or without glasses. I'm quite sure I'd find the non-HP finder difficult to use with glasses, so I'm glad I have the finder I have.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    There's actually very little difference in terms of eye relief between the DE-2 and DE-3(HP) finder. Magnification is what makes the difference. Have both, wear glasses and actually prefer the DE-2.

    What are some of the things to look out for in the cameras and the motor drives, what should I be aware of?
