Ul­ti­mate up­grade?

NPhoto - - Over To You -

I cur­rently have two Nikon D750 cam­eras that I have been us­ing since late 2014. They are easy to use and the per­for­mance, as your Ul­ti­mate Up­grades ar­ti­cle (in Is­sue 68) states, is first rate. How­ever, there are also a cou­ple of down­sides to them. First, the pro­grammed spe­cial ef­fects op­tions don’t seem to be ap­pro­pri­ate in an en­thu­si­asts’ cam­era. Sec­ond, and more sig­nif­i­cant, is Nikon’s ser­vice ad­vi­sory for the cam­era’s faulty shut­ter.

The first D750 I had went back to Nikon UK head of­fice last year, and it took nearly three weeks to cor­rect the is­sue. The other cam­era has been af­fected by an ERR er­ror oc­ca­sion­ally, and its se­rial num­ber has now ap­peared on the lat­est ad­vi­sory no­tice! Any­one buy­ing a D750 needs to be aware of the shut­ter faults that un­for­tu­nately ap­pear to plague this oth­er­wise bril­liant cam­era. NigelSawyer,Kingston,Sur­rey We’re sorry to hear of your trou­bles with your D750, Nigel. Nikon did in­deed an­nounce in Oc­to­ber that the shut­ter fault, which some­times pro­duces par­tial shad­ing of images, may af­flict mod­els made be­fore July 2015. Af­fected cam­eras are be­ing re­paired, free of charge, by Nikon ser­vice cen­tres. See if your cam­era is af­fected at www.europe-nikon. com/en_GB/ser­vice-and-sup­port/ ser­vice-ad­vi­sories.tag

Some D750 bod­ies may have a shut­ter fault, but those with af­fected se­rial num­bers can be fixed by Nikon ser­vice cen­tres for free
