One of the more popular still lenses being used for video is the 50mm Nikkor.
Here is a DIY on how I de clicked mine and a simple way to add drag and viscous feel of the aperture afterwards without using messy grease.

Hope this helps those who want to do this but don't know how.

Huh, always assumed it was a ball bearing...the sealant tape is genius. Thanks Ted.

Is this as easy to do on the 50mm 1.8D version?

I just declicked a 50mm 1.8 that I bought online for $40. Worked great. Not sure about the D versions though - those are autofocus and I suspect that there is a lot more going on inside (meaning more electronic stuff that you can screw up when poking around).
I am looking forward to declicking the rest of my old nikon set now, so easy! Thanks, Ted.
