Aizan is right about the diopters for the Nikon F3.

Let me add that all the 6x7 and 6x9 Fuji cameras starting from the G690 BL -- it means that only the original G690 from 1968 is different -- are equipped with a 19mm round viewing eyepiece thread, just like the following Nikon models: FM3A, FM2, FA, FE2, F3, F3AF, FM, FE, F2, F and Nikkormat series. All the Nikon viewfinder accessories designed for the aforementioned cameras are therefore compatible with the big Fujis.

I personally recommend the Nikon DR-3 right angle viewfinder attachment when using the camera low on a tripod.

Cheers!

Abbazz

And, as always, don't confuse the F3 with the F3HP (they have different sizes for the eyepiece thread).

Does this mean that the Bessa and RD-1 diopters also fit, or is that a different Nikon series? If they do fit, they have the advantage of not scratching your glasses. When I went looking for diopters for the RD-1, there were the Nikon ones and the Bessa/RD-1 ones. Both worked, but the Bessa/RD-1 had rubberized rings, while the Nikon ones had a nice hard metal edge, scratching your glasses.
