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
