"Well, Ca-RAP!"


US
          

The shutter in my 19-month-old D7000 took a dump on me two days ago. 26,550 actuations. I vote Nikon owes me a new shutter.

Tell me about it. Whatever it is, it's only secured at one end. I'd really like to know WTH it is.

It's a shutter blade. The shutter needs to be replaced.

Why is a shutter blade only secured at one end?

Because the fastener at the other end has broken.

So much for the vaunted 150,000 actuations.
Mine died at just on 27,000.
Not worth replacing, I'll wait to see what is announced for the D600.

If there are two that passed on to the wreckers below 30,000, some folk out there have cameras that must go to 400,000 or more to keep the "average" at 150,000.

It is attached at both sides, and the blades are separated by tiny little 'washers', its a wonder it works at all I fear.

Hope you can get it repaired under warranty.

Sorry for your loss, I'd hate to be in your shoes. On the other hand, what a great excuse to jump FF and get a D600 in a couple of months!

Mine is going strong and just passed the 50.000 mark.

Anybody collecting statistics on this model?

Hi David,


>Not worth replacing, I'll wait to see what is announced for the D600.

Having the shutter replaced will be significantly cheaper than buying another D7000 new or even used at a great price.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

G,day,

You'd be right if I didn't live in australia.

I once shipped a camera to the US, for repair and it cheaper to cover the costs than get it done locally. That is part of the amazing world we live in.

So I've taken the philosophic approach and hold on to the cash, and drop it all on a piece of equipment that might be more reliable. And it will have that 'new' feel anyway.

Regards

DJ

What fastener? Where? I see no evidence this was ever attached to anything.

The shutter blades are only attached at one end. The other "fastener" isn't broken because there isn't one. Here are a couple of image/diagrams of Nikon shutters. These are from older film cameras, but are similar in design.

Shutters travel vertically, FYI.

No way to tell. It's locked in a mirror-up / shutter jammed condition.

How amazingly inexpensive.

Those little brass bushes on the end of the end are my problem.

Pity I don't have enough expertise to whip out the old and pop in the new.

Maybe you could leave the camera as is and become very proficient using content-aware fill in Photoshop
