    looking to buy a Nikon DM-1 cable.

    may your analog camera live forever (or at least we run out of silver)!

    What kind of cable is this you're looking for? I have some Nikon cables I don't use, but I don't know the names & numbers of these cables.

    It is the cable that goes from the MA-4 AC/DC converter to the DS-12/DS-1/etc.. aperture control ring (it replaces the battery).

    This site is talking about MC cables, not DM. Maybe one of these will fit also?

    Nope, the DM-1 is the only cable that powers the DS-12 (and other aperture control rings).

    These other cables mostly power the motor drive or remote control devices

    May your file camera live forever!

    Hi Doc,
    wish you good luck, this cable is almost unfindable. I had two, I sold one, I keep the last by myself, sorry! Keep an eye on ebay and other fotofairs. Honest price between 75 an 120us$ if mint.
    Regards
    Christian
