Heads up! K2DMD motor drive on eBay

There's a K2DMD motor drive set on eBay now, without camera body and data back.
It's described as working but it sounds like NiCad cell may need replacing.

Would've been cool to have another motordrive kit.

Does anyone have the instructions for how to change the batteries?

You can use the Battery Grip M - uses AA batteries.

The price is kind of high for a 2 fps "motor drive", the same rate later offered by inexpensive power winders.
The Winder MX is probably close to double that. It is rare though, and would be a nice addition for a collector.

true, but that grip is really not the best designed grip. I have one in my collection. It would be better to fix the nicad cells

I do think this is a bit expensive, but then again, I am always looking for a good deal. The MD I have for my K2DMD was bought at kEH.COM for something like USD60.
