Custom made DataCable2 for Nikon
N90 / F90 / N90(s) / F90(x) / F100 / F5 analogue cameras
with GENUINE Nikon 10 pin connector
Compatible with Nikon MC-33 MC33 cable.
DataCable2 enables downloading* of shooting data from your Nikon camera to your PC, save/change camera’s CSM settings and camera control (see your software spec.) Compatible with Nikon MC-33 MC33 cable
* On N90/N90s/F90/F90x it will enable (through software) unlocking of some features
that otherwise require the MF-26 back.
In order for your camera to start recording data you must instruct it to do so from the software (except for F5). It will not record any data until this is activated!
If you are looking for the MC-31 MC31 cable, please note that this is the same cable except that it uses a D-9 pin computer connector and MC-31 uses the old style D-25 pin connector. In this case use a standard D-25 to D-9 adapter in order to use this cable.
If your computer has USB serial port, than use a standard USB to D-9 adapter.

I could have used a cheaper connector like those offered by others and saved about $30 but I decided not to compromise on this critical component.

F. from Netherlands:
“I already received the DataCable2 yesterday! That’s nearly five days.
It was very well packed, clear manual included. I connected it to my F90X and F100 with a USB-to-serial connector into my laptop. Didn’t even needed a serial gender changer. It works perfect (in combination with SoftTalk 2000)!!!
Great service, so many thanks for this.”
G. from France:
“I received the DataCable2 yesterday and I connected my camera F100 to my PC as described into the package. The cable and the software I purchased (Camera Companion) work well. I test to download data from the F100 on my PC and store them into an Access DataBase, and it’s OK. I found the DataCable2 is well made. Good job ! I thank you very much for your prompt answer to my request and for the quality of your service.”
E. from USA:
“I received the cable today and tried it on two different Nikon F5s. I was using Windows XP SP2 and a Phoebe Airlink 101 D9/USB cable/connector. Everything worked fine, and in fact, I had far fewer communication timeouts with your cable than the Nikon MC-33. I’m not sure why, but that really was the case–only one time out with both cameras and all of the testing I performed. For some reason the metering status test using the MC-33 frequently caused communication timeouts, but in the “torture testing” I did with your cable I only got one, and that was recoverable. Must be something different, and for the better, in your cable electronics vs. that used in the Nikon MC-33″
