- Hi All,
I know this isn't the technical term for this part, but unfortunately the
small piece of black woven nylon string (for want of a better word) has
broken on my FE so that the aperture change is no longer registered by the
camera metering system.
I've tried some polyester thread as a replacement, but this doesn't have
the same characteristics under tension and the meter doesn't move in
accurate stop increments, it moves it too quickly and as a result it also
mucks up the FRE unit and moves it too far.
Of course I've called the Australian Nikon distributor, no luck as per
usual, can anyone suggest a source for some replacement, or know what I
shoud be looking for in particular.
