Hi! I am a new member, although I have been shooting Nikon for the past 9 years allready. I have a D50 and a D90, and both are stunning cameras! I do how-ever have a slight problem, my D50 is acting up, it only works in "auto" setting, none of the other settings (P,A,S or M)activates. The pop-up flash also gets stuck sometimes, and it is asif the catch just does not release the pop-up.....It is the first time in all the 9 years that I have had my D50, that it gives me problems, - I am situated in Cape Town South Africa, and would dearly appreciate it if someone can direct me to a Nikon repair Centre in the vacinity.

It appears that Nikon have a service centre in Johannesburg. See http://www.nikon.co.za/en_ZA/service_support/Service_Centre.page?lid=3&lidsub1=0&lidsub2=0&lidsub3=0&lidsub4=0&sParamValueLbl=Service+Centre&sParamValue=&dcr=
