Motor Drive for Nikon F2: Battery Pack for MD-2 Size: 35mm SLR

USED Nikon MD-2 Motor Drive with Nikon MB-1 Battery Pack

$399.99

MD-2: S/N 414850 – excellent condition – (very slight black paint wear on the top of the handle).

MB-1: comes with 2- five AA battery caddy’s

The motor drive MD-2 is designed for use with the Nikon F2-series cameras. It winds the film and cocks the shutter automatically each time you press the shutter release. You can also set it for completely automatic sequence shooting at speeds of up to five frames per second. And you can also operate it by remote control with the use of cables, timers or radio. The MD-2 rewinds a 36 exposures roll of film in about seven seconds. In combination with Nikon's camera back MF-3, it provides for automatic film rewind stop- with a LED indicator lighting up to indicate completion of rewind.

Easily regarded as one of the more important accessory behind the lenses and flash unit in any 35mm professional SLR system and an indispensable tool for those who often cover sports, action and news coverage. The Nikon motor drive system is built around the professional grade motor drive MD-2, which can, in fact, be considered as the basic building block for the photographer with flexibility and versatility in mind.

The MD-2 was one of the fastest motor drive available off-the-shelf during the seventies, with a maximum firing speed of 5 fps. Other than the fast firing speed factor, many enhanced features incorporated within the battle tank-liked construction made it a clear favorite among many working professionals during its era.

To ensure maximum flexibility in operation, the MD-2 can be operated in either the single-frame or continuous shooting modes; switch over between the modes is by means of the large, knurled knob on the top of the motor drive hand grip. A simple lift and turn operation provides drift-free, positive selection of the desired shooting mode - even when wearing heavy gloves. A lock position is also provided to prevent you from making inadvertent exposures. Just below the S/C knob, where the right index finger rests naturally, is the motor drive trigger button.

The MD-2 itself comes equipped with a subtractive frame counter that can be used in two ways. The simplest is to countdown the number of exposures made and then, at the end of the film, to shut the motor drive off automatically. This prevents the film end from being pulled out of the cassette. The other way to use the counter is for presetting bursts, with the motor drive automatically shutting off after the preset number of frames has been fired. As the camera's frame counter continues to function with the motor drive attached, it is easy to keep track of the number of exposures remaining even when shooting in bursts. Film loading and unloading are simple and straightforward with the MD-2 attached. The motor drive simplifies advancing the first few "blank" frames at the start of a new film and its power rewind facility makes very short work of rewinding the film when it is completely exposed, taking a mere 7 seconds for a full 36-exposure cassette.

A plus feature, seldom found on other motor drives, is the MD-2's ability to take multiple exposures while the motor drive is running. This is easily achieved deliberately with the MD-2 by merely pushing up the rewind slide and depressing the trigger button. This can give rise to some very interesting effects and offers considerable scope for experimentation.

 You can set the countdown timer knob to count down the appropriate number of frames before it stops shooting pictures, or you can put it in "S" to allow an indefinite amount of pictures to be taken. To rewind the film, first push up on the rewind button lever (push the silver button in the middle of this lever first), then hold the small button to the left of the rewind engagement lever down and push the engagement lever to the right. To stop the rewind, just push the engagement lever back to the left. To open the back, flip the opening lever out and push it to the left. The firing rate control dictates the speed of the motor, as well as the minimum shutter speed required to sustain the speed. Falling below the speed is not catastrophic, as long as you don't do it regularly; however, be advised that the motor will mindlessly advance the film whether or not the exposure has been completed. If you're going to take pictures at about 1/8th or slower, the motor drive doesn't really need to be turned on.

We have a Nikon F2SB Photomic with DP-3 Prism on our e-bay cam-view store that uses this motor dirve, and many other accessories and lenses.
