Home again | Nikon D610

About a week ago ( 21st July) my D610 made it back from Nikon Sydney with a new shutter mechanism to replace the original that came with the replacement camera from Nikon Sydney via Harvey Norman (more or less). I’d love to say I have the confidence that this issue will not resurface again but unfortunately this is not the case. It’s such a weird situation to be in. I’d love to be able to load files from the SD cards and not even have the thought cross my mind that the images will somehow show contamination on the sensor. After 17 months of nothing but one problem after another (to date five shutter mechanisms and two cameras) it’s going to take some serious consistency from the D610 to rewire that mindset.

 

Nikon D600 Dust and Oil Damnation

200 + marks on sensor (visible dust and oil) after last round of shooting. This was amongst the last of the shots taken recently with my Nikon D600 which has had 3 shutter replacements in 14 months.

The conversion to black and white in the image below highlights the severity of the problem.

1st shutter replacement down, 2nd shutter replacement down, 3rd shutter replacement down. Bitterly disappointed to say the least. I really have nothing left to say on this matter.

Good luck to anyone out there still experiencing problems with the D600. I hope that your cases are heard sympathetically and that you get a just resolution.
