    The last new camera I purchased, a Nikon 3200, was purchased from a large multinational store. The local camera and hifi shop disappeared  years ago.

    I'm not sure either, and looks like the lens needs a lot of work to connect all the branches. I'm looking at this assembly, which looks identical. https://www.aliexpress.com/snapshot/0.html?spm=a2g ...

    Not so lucky, the problem came back the next day. I stripped the lens down so far and discovered a part break in one of the flexible ribbon cables. Actually the the cables were not that flexible, ...

    I need to stop looking on Facebook Market Place, in the last 6 months I have purchased 2 V1's a J3 an S1 and now a J1. I'll never understand why old 35mm film cameras such as the Canon AE-1 and ...

    Sorry, that was $125 + shipping + tax
  • Created discussion thread Lucky Me
    I just purchased a 1 j1 kit with a 10-30 and a 30-110, in lovely condition but the 10-30 had a Lens error, contact an authorised service centre. I thought I would have a go at fixing the lens as I ...
  • I kept the pinion that fell off the shaft and thought about using Loctite 271 if Aliexpress did not not deliver.
  • I'm very happy with my repair and was worth tackling.
  • On my 30-110, once the rubber grip was removed, the screwed down contacts was covered by black adhesive tape that covered the whole circumference. I only peeled back enough to remove the contacts, ...
  • I stripped my lens down and discovered the nylon pinion had fallen off the shaft and jammed against the mating gear. My idea was to strip the lens down and wait for the replacement to arrive, but I ...
  • The pinion form does look correct when further magnified, do you remove the burrs? My new new nylon pinions arrived the following day after I reassembled my 30-110. I tried annealing one of the ...
  • The brass pinion did not look to have the correct geometry, from the image shown on this forum.
  • I ordered a few pinions on the internet over a month ago and I'm still waiting, so Yesterday I decided to strip my 30-110 down in preparation for when the pinions arrive. With the help of a ...
  • > just discovered that the 30-110 mm YouTube disassembly video can be slowed down to normal speed and most of the screws look to be the same size. Replacing the aperture pinion looks very doable now.
  • Do you happen to know the module of the 9 tooth pinion? Thanks
  • Sorry, the 30-110 pinion has 9 teeth.
  • Mr Huang, the 30 -100 has an 8 tooth pinion (see your images) and the image above shows a 12 tooth pinion. There is a Russian YouTube video with a close up of the plastic pinions that are ...
  • A couple of weeks ago I purchased an S1 with an 11-27.5 and a 30-110 with a jammed aperture. I checked the shutter actuations and it was just 2K, so I'm guessing the 30-110 is almost new. The ...
  • The stepping motor is so tiny I would imagine any misalignment the motor would just stop, there is not enough power to cause the pinion to crack.  I think it is just a badly molded part that once ...
  • sorry, here it is https://cpsm.kpi.ua/polymer/1992/8/1664-1668.pdf
