Nothing posted here in a while so thought I'd start something. I saw reports from some that their D750 shutter sounded different after the service work from Nikon. I got mine back from Nikon recently and it really is different. It's a bit quieter without as much of a thwack sound. More like a loud thud. No change in performance but that was interesting. Anyone get theirs back yet?

Hmm is this due to the reflection issue(not sure I called it the right thing) some where having? Wonder if they had to redo the entire mirror box.

There was a third recall of the D750 earlier this year but really it's all part of the same problem it's had right from the start:

It's more like the second one as in 2nd issue. There were two voluntary service calls on it. And, honestly, most people wouldn't see the issues in either. The first is a reflection flare blocking if you had a strong light source just outside of the frame. Usually you see this in the trendy contre-jour portrait shots. The second is from high speed sync with flash not always syncing. Again, most people don't use Auto FP modes. Personally I sent mine in because it's like a free shutter reset and a general clean/adjust.

 

The shutter really does sound different, though. I wonder if it's from a different vendor?

I saw that but it doesn't concern me. I've had two D750s and haven't seen it either.

I know the internet sometimes makes issues seem worse and I am sure this is the case also but it does seem since the D600 Nikon has had some issues with its shutters. I know I should know this but I am assuming Nikon has an outside source who makes their shutters or is this something they do in house?

 

But these issues are not limited to Nikon the entire digital camera world seems to have runs of bad batches, the Olympus EM-5 had some issues with the shutters at 1/4000 not properly opening causing severe underexposure so this seems to be something we deal with as cameras become more and more complicated.

I kind of think that as well. Others have reported the same all the way back to the D2h and others on the D3 series. I'm sure it's an inconvenience for someone but I tend to think it's a rarity for how the majority of people use the cameras.

I think you hit the nail on the end James - there seems to be a growing trend for often quite major issues with recent releases right across brands. The thing I've noticed is they tend to be basic mechanical failures which really should have been ironed out 50 years ago - mirrors that throw oil about, light leaks, internal refection, these aren't modern digital issues these are camera basics. I get that with very complex digital systems you will get glitches in the firmware that may not be spotted until they out in the wild - all electronic devices not just cameras are like this - but they are fixed very quickly with new FW so while irritating they don't cause an entire batch or even every single body to come off the line to be returned for a repair. 

 

Whats particularly odd with Nikon's run of problems is they are biased towards the higher end models which have a slow update/replace cycle so its not as if they are being thrown together in an effort to put one out every year. If I was in the market for a D500 I'd think twice or even thrice about getting one from the first few batches, though I really hope it is a success and helps mend sore relationships.

Hey guys, have not posted for awhile, but I also have an issue with the shutter on my D750. After not having used it for a day or so, first shot the LCD shows a blinking "err"  and camera locks up. After pushing shutter button all the way down its fine. Anybody else have this problem and no my camera is not affected by any recalls.

I am taking her in today and will keep you updated.

The "err" display can come from one of several internal self checks.  One of these is that the shutter speed measured during exposure was out of tolerance from the selected speed.  This speed selection could be one you selected in manual or shutter priority or a speed determined by the camera in any of the other exposure or scene modes.
