sensor dust

Nikon D600

We are all well aware of the sensor dust spot complaints generated by Nikon D600 users. Nikon has yet to acknowledge a problem with the D600 . . . even though it launched a Nikon D610 with the only real upgrade being an improved shutter. In a service advisory about the D600 sensor dust problem, Nikon simply stated that the problem was “generally attributed to the natural accumulation of dust.” Recently, some customers have even received Nikon D610 units as their “fix” for a problematic D600 model sent in for a sensor cleaning.

US law firm Lieff Cabraser has posted an inquiry form soliciting information from Nikon D600 customers, which cites the D600 as an allegedly defective product and notes further that consumer protection laws may afford D600 customers an opportunity to bring a class action suit against Nikon for their troubles.  [click to continue…]

Nikon has finally issued a service advisory for the Nikon D600 with regard to the dust accumulation on the sensor. Those hoping for a fix for the abnormal amount of dust and debris on the D600 sensor, however, will be disappointed to learn that Nikon essentially says that this is perfectly normal behavior “generally attributed to the natural accumulation of dust.”

The solution?

Have the D600 serviced by a Nikon service center.

The full service advisory is reproduced below. [click to continue…]
