"Nikon d50"

I have a friend that has a d50 that when you take a picture with it the lower 1/4 - 1/3 of the picture turns out black. He has tried different lenses but still has the problem. Acts like something in the camera. Has anyone ran into this before?

Take care,
Ron

Sounds like a shutter synchronization problem. Sync-ing with what I am not sure (mirror? sensor timing?)

Shutter has died. Not a synch problem.

Hi Ron,

Is your friend using flash?
If so, make sure the shutter speed is set to 1/500th sec. or slower.
If not, the shutter must be replaced.

Best Regards,
Marty

Is a shutter replacement an expensive repair? Is that a replacement camera issue? It always seems like guys talk about shutter clicks and "life" left in the camera as if it is a fatal event. I guess I should look and see if Nikon posts typical repair costs somewhere. JB
