Loose tripod socket

Postby kivivuori » Thu Mar 17, 2011 8:37 am


I just bought 3.5F which has been used a lot but the lenses, shutter, mirror etc. are in excellent condition.

There is one annoying problem: The tripod socket is loose and it dosen`t matter how hard the baallhead is tighten to the camera, the body still moves a bit. Not much but ebough to make tripod almost useless.

Does anyone know if the tripod socket is dispebsable part or do I have to change whole back cover ?

Try tightening the nut that holds it first (try "left handed thread" too).

If that doesn't work, try a tiny drop of crazy glue (you can still buy a new back when that messed everything up ;-)
