The rubber hand grips on my trusty D300s are worn and faded. Is there any way of renovating them?
Jason says... Nikon’s UK service department told us that a complete set of replacement rubber grips for the D300s costs around £45 including postage, for you to replace them yourself. Or you could send your camera to the service centre in Kingston, and they’d do the whole job for you, at a charge of around £70 for parts and labour.
You can buy ‘body armour’ for your Nikon, which fits over the body as a protective shell, but this will make it more bulky. Some companies also make silicone shells that are sleeker than armour, but replacing the existing grips is the best idea.
