In Topic: D200 housing mod to D300

01 February 2011 - 07:24 PM

Hi
Work is in process & it can be done.
Subal D200 housing was tighter than Nexus but, still has room to adopt
D300 with minor mod, using even same base plate + same back plate.

So far,
1.Lens hole is centered.
2.Using same base plate (front steel piece for D200 removed & new
D300 plate will be added to secure the camera properly).
3.Need to tune a spring botton & on/off switch. Minor work.
4.Using same back plate. (extra shoes need to be added like I did on Nexus).

I am not drilling new hole or plugging the hole. Goal is to modify
the housing with small screw driver & allen keys in 10-15 min. & put
it back to original in same amount of time as needed, all at minimum cost.

Hi Sam, My d-200 is out of service. I could get another body or upgrade to d300. I have subal housing. Any more of those adapter kits available? Sure would like one. Thank you. ED
