    Hi everyone,

    I've just bought a Nikon FA. I love it apart from the fact that the eyepiece thread has been bashed so I can't screw in a protective eyepiece. Does anybody know of anyone/a shop who sells parts for these older analog cameras? I'll most likely need to swap the whole top cover/top plate.

    Regards,

    Stephan

    You can also try "cameras etc" on*bay and search for either "broken,as-is, or for parts" When it takes you to the 80k or so it will allow you to narrow the search by "film cameras or lenses". Most will be inexpensive but you still find the collectible AE1.

    I have a Nikon FA and it's missing two small screws on the prism section. Sooo, if you find a FA parts resource give me a shout out. Of course, I'm still looking for a FA finger grip.
