The F36 motor drive completely replaces the standard Nikon F back, and includes a pressure plate and a key on the bottom to lock/unlock the back to the camera, just as with the standard back. On the front of the motor is the coaxial power connector; the back holds three dials: from right to left, they are the "countdown" selector, S/L/C collar and firing button, and firing rate knob. When the motor is mounted to the body, you may still use manual film advance and release, as long as the motor's "countdown" window does not read "0".
This "countdown" selector is most useful for bursts of specific numbers of frames (set the number by pressing in on the selector and turning it clockwise), or for automatically stopping the motor at the end of a roll (again, set the appropriate number of frames). For collectors, this a late model of the F36. As you can see from the photos, this specimen is lightly used and in excellent cosmetic condition. It was never used professionally.
Some slight lifting of the leatherette on the front. As grading cosmetics is subjective, I photographed all sides for you to make your own cosmetic assessment. The drive was attached to a cordless battery pack (see my other auctions) and seems to be operating well.
A hard to find F-36 Motor Drive box is also included. It's in very good shape with typical wear. Internal foam also has some wear and chipping, but holds the drive secure. 1 - F36 Motor Drive serial #. 150424 1 - F36 Motor Drive Box.This week including an MB-1 for this drive, rare cameras, lenses, accessories, and more!
