    HI All!

    Does anyone know where I'd find a cable release, or better yet, an adapter for one, for a Nikon F2?

    They're different from a standard screw-in. If you've seen one, you'll know what I mean--rather than a small tip that screws in, it's quite a bit larger...

    Thanks!

    Hi Mike

    Last time I needed an adaptor for mine a local camera store (...been around a while...) was able to rumage through there stuff and came up with a coupe of them for me. If you can't find one easily, let me know and I'll see if I can find the spare one that I put away for "someday". I'm using my F3 more these days and it take just a regular old tapered release.

    Cheers, Dave
    (it's currently snowing in Vancouver BC, but it'll be rain tomorrow...)

    Porters camera. The adapter's inexpensive & was known as a "leica" adapter.
