Hi Sam,

You've got me very interested in the d700 camera as I own a d200 nexus.
In Tonga last month I would have liked faster ISO with the humpback whales as it was overcast and choppy.

Can I just go over what I understand you have done to put the d700 into the nexus d200 housing?
Please correct me if I'm wrong?

A modified baseplate lines up lenses correctly and gives access to shutter release, aperture and shutter dials ( I shoot mostly in manual mode)

At this point what else do you have access to?
More importantly, what don't you have access to?

You are still working on a back plate as the viewfinder doesn't line up?

Are you thinking about selling kits for this conversion?

And just a general question on the d700 camera: I read that you cannot download onto a computer without the supplied software. What are the system requirements for this software? I have one older computer. Or can I, once downloaded, transfer these files to any computer?

thanks for your help

Hi,
I tried to put d700 into Subal ND20 d200 housing in weekend & found
it is not possible without changing the back cover. Sorry for disappointing
news.

Hi Mary,
I have a friend who visited Tonga/Vava'u last month & took pictures with
Tony Wu and he told me how hard it is. I respect those of you doing that....

You are correct on things you described/understand about modified nexus d200
housing.
Right now, you can do;
On/Off
Shutter
F-stop dial
Shutter speed
Picture Review

and you will have most of function you have (except C-S-M Sw,Lens release)
on your d200 housing today.

I am still making new plastic window & it will make all function switches + view finder
perfectly in line with d700. CAD design is done & will have first one made by CNC this
week.

I made some d200 to d300 mod kits available to members & will do the same for d700
kit.

Re download, No, you can download to your computer like you do on d200, without
any extra software.

Sam,

Does it mean, that only the controlls on the back are not working?

Or is it not possible to fit the camera completely in the housing?7

 

I have send you a message regarding the D300 conversion kit - maybe you just have still a kit available.

 

Best regards,

Michael
