In the continuing saga of Nikon’s D600 dust spot debacle, Nikon has released another statement that it will replace users’ cameras if the dust spot problem continues after it has been serviced. Nikon states that the replacement will be “a new D600 or an equivalent model” (presumably, the D610).
This follows Nikon’s prior service advisory that it would replace the shutter assembly for free in affected Nikon D600 units. You can read the full release from Nikon below. [click to continue…]

Nikon has extended its DSLR and lens instant rebates through March 29 – with savings available up to $680 off regular prices. All Nikon DSLRs (except the new D4s and D3300) are included in the deals. Check them all out here at B&H Photo.
B&H has the Nikon D610 refurbished for $1749.95 (compare to $1996.95 new). Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Nikon has yet to admit any defect with the D600 despite a plethora of reports concerning a defective shutter mechanism. Even when the D610 was announced (way too early as a proper replacement for the D600), Nikon made no mention of the shutter defect. However, Nikon highlighted a new, improved shutter as a feature of the D610.
Now, it appears that some Nikon D600 owners who send their cameras in for cleaning are getting brand new Nikon D610 cameras back with little or no cost to the user. (Update: Nikon later confirmed that all service inquiries are handled on a case-by-case basis, but provided no direct response to the D610 and D600 shutter mechanism debacle. See official statement below.) [click to continue…]
Mastering the Nikon D610 is a new book from photographer Darrell Young.
“This book explores the features and capabilities of the camera in a way that far surpasses the user’s manual. It guides readers through the camera features with step-by-step setting adjustments; color illustrations; and detailed how, when, and why explanations for each option. Every button, dial, switch, and menu configuration setting is explored in a user-friendly manner, with suggestions for setup according to various shooting styles.”
Mastering the Nikon D610 retails for $39.95; however, is currently available for $28.03 from Amazon.com.
