Nikon D60 and BR2A Reversing Ring

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Blinky the Shark, Jun 20, 2008.

  1. Just got a BR2A for my Nikon D60 and having fun at 4:1 with 18-55 lens at
    full wide.

    But the ring won't click into place on the body. It turns freely about 45
    degrees, and then meets resistance. It doesn't stop dead, and I can turn
    it against the resistance for a bit -- enough that it's not loose. But
    not far enough for the mount pin to click into a detent on the face of the
    ring.

    Anybody else in here have the same combination (or with D40/D40X)? If
    so, do you experience this, as well?

    It's not a deal breaker; the ring didn't loosen up during a couple-hour
    session this evening. But it doesn't feel right and I don't want to
    damage anything.

  2. I suspect that you probably bought one of those Chinese knockoffs from
    DigitalRev? Anyway, if this not a genuine Nikon part you will have to
    accept it for what it is. Depending on how out of tolerance it is, you will
    need to keep working it on and off the camera numerous times till it loosens
    up.

  3. I don't know -- did you expect that?
    I got it from Adorama, and it appears to be a Nikon accessory, as
    advertised. Heavy (not aluminum or some similar alloy) and nicely
    machined.

    Surprisingly, I stuck it on a few minutes ago to go chase a spider, and it
    did click into place. I wasn't aware of using any more force in
    tightening it.
