A Fall Wander Around Town with my Nikon F3 and Kodak Ektar 100 Part Two

 This Nikon F3HP needs a bit of love. These are super robust cameras but their LCD meter readout is prone to fading over time. I just sent an email off to my trusty repair tech in Quebec City to see if he can fix it. From my research the LCD display assembly has been out of production for ages and spare parts are impossible to find. Now, not all hope is lost, from same research it might be a faulty connection that's to blame. You can't tell from the 13 year old photo but this particular F3 has a lot of milage under the hood, most likely in the hands of a working photo journalist and was either a birthday or Christmas present. I can't quite remember. My first preference is a repair, otherwise I'm looking for another Nikon F3HP and I'll be looking for the youngest one I can afford as this camera was made from 1980 to 2001.
