MX Motor Drive - How & Where?

Hi, Just bought an MX

I'm trying to find one of these:


Pentax Winders and Motor Drives

It's MX Motor Drive (5fps) NOT the Winder (2fps)

Anyone know where I can get one?..all I can find on ebay is two winders and loads of manuals for them.

they show up on ebay occasionally, you just have to be very patient. Also try markets or [photography fairs where there are a lot of old kit knocking about (but you will pay a premium).

Just out of interest, what do you want 5fps for? youll only end up swallowing entire rolls of film in under 6 seconds.

you know you have to have a separate battery pack for that motor drive right? they do show up on the bay occasionally, very occasionally. but expect them to go rather high in price. even more so if it has the battery. why do you want the drive over the winder? you plan on shooting sports with the thing? I have a winder and I find it more than useful at 2fps. actually I have two winders, one of which I will be happy to sell ya.

I've seen them at KEH from time to time as well as Adorama.

Edit: Adorama has 2 but they aren't cheap. http://www.adorama.com/US%20%20%20%20156748.html

Also have a a motor drive for the Super Program.
