    Hi!

    I broke the door off of my beloved Nikon N70 over the weekend. Not sure how it happened, I came down off of a large rock after a hike and the door was flapping in the wind! Anyway, I called the Nikon Parts people and they say they can sell me a new shell for the complete camera for under $20. Has anyone here replaced the shell on their camera before? I am wondering how much work I am looking at. I am pretty mechanically inclined, but am a little hesitant to start working on this electronic beast.

    I'd suggest buying the shell and taking it to a repair shop (not just a camera store, but a bona fide repair-shop). Twenty dollars is not a ton of money, and they probably could transfer the electronics easily. I'd get a quote first, though.

    Well, I ordered the body from Nikon. The price went up 2 bucks over night. After taking a look at my body (the camera) I am going to be able to swap doors pretty easily.

    Just a quick followup. I received my "Shell" from Nikon this morning. IT turns out it is only a plastic shell for the door. I am going to have to transfer over the pressure plate and a few other parts. Shouldn't be too much of a problem though. and oh yeah, the price was different from the two previous quotes I got from them... $17.70 Nikon is crazy...
