Needed for my Nikon EL2
on May 8, 2014
I have a Nikon EL2 SLR camera from 1977-78 and this is the kind of battery that it uses. These kind of batteries used to be pretty common, but now that most digital cameras use rechargeable batteries, the throw away kind are harder to find. I ordered this from Amazon for about $5 and what else can I say? Its a battery and it works.
If you have a Nikon EL2, the battery is in an odd location. You have to remove the lens of the camera, then look inside, right beneath the mirror is a hatch that you can open with your finger. The battery is beneath the hatch. To get it out, turn the camera upside down and with your finger, gently push it to the side of the camera with the shutter release button until the battery falls out.
When inserting the new battery, make sure you observe polarity. The positive side of the battery faces AWAY from the side of the camera with the shutter release button. Looking at the camera from the front, this is to the RIGHT.
As with any film camera, if you don't plan on using the camera for a long period of time, remove the battery to prevent it from running down prematurely.
