Nikon F100

Accessory cables concept

DISCLAIMER – Important!


This project started when I was looking for a release cable solution for my new F100. I realized that there are several accessories that can connect to the F100. I needed the MC-30 release cable and the MC-33 to connect my F100 to my PC.
Further study led me to some sites and newsgroups posts suggesting how to build your own cables and I than started to be interested in tailoring my own solution.
Seeing Nikon’s prices, US$165 (back in ~2003) for both, helped me to decide that I’m going to build it myself.

First I decided on a concept that will allow me to attach the 2 cables I needed and will allow future accessories to be attached as well.
This was done by building an INTERFACE cable that keeps all 10 wires of the F100 connector plug.
I chose to use a DB-15 connector because of its availability and ease of wires soldering.
