Dang that sucks. Its more of a wiggle rather than a push..


You gotta be real careful with all those cables. actually its best to just be careful all around. cables, screws, pieces etc.

Dang. I didn't order my cable from them but there was another site linking to it and i just thought it was easier because you don't need to send an email to purchase the cable.


I got mines from the SP link on the text tutorial.
You guys got me scared. lol.

Eh. I'm sure it's just really busy there because of the X-Mas rush. But if I don't hear from them or receieve the cable sometime next week, I'll give them a call.

Nope, still no cable for me. I'm so bummed, I lost out on 62 bucks, still have only a half functional VF, plus I was really looking forward to using your video to guide me through the process. You don't by any chance know of another place to order the cable from, do you?

Well, idk if its just you who never received a cable, or everyone. but [b]i changed the link[/b] to the company i used. Its a bit more complicated, which is why i had another link from another site.

So sorry man. =[

Oh, it's not your fault at all dude. Just the incompetents at nexttronics. Also thanks for the new link, and once again thanks for making this video. I know it will most definitely help me, and I know its helped many others.

all its really saying is take out all the screws you can find (on the exterior)... except for the 4 tripod plate screws and the ones on TOP of the handle...


"do it in reverse" is just putting all the screws back on.
