I thought there was something wrong with my D7000 focus. I could not calibrate it even with the fine tune. I wrote to united camera and got an online quote, which some of you might think it was a high quote. I said here I go and sent it out to them. You can get a variety of shipping options with them. I packed it myself, and packed it excellent. I ship ham radios and glass tubes for amplifiers in my other hobby. And I paid for shipping and got a prepaid UPS label. I received emails for every step of the repair. And I got notified by email that they shipped it to me after the repair. I was skeptical. well, let me tell you the focus was right on. I did a variety of test charts. also I got from them a letter of what they did. They re calibrated the light meter. I can not use my delighting on low. it looked like a new camera. they cleaned it up and very nicely. the tech was named Tim. It took about 7 days all together, but I paid for next day air to return it to me. I read alot of different stories of persons really unsatisfied with their work. But I took a chance. No one wants to send their camera out. I wanted to share this experience because I wanted to trade the camera here at Nikonians, but told the other member that I thought it had a focus problem. some lenses were better than others before I sent it out, and would get by with some of the jobs I did. This was about a month ago, and I told the people of United Camera that I would share my experience with Nikonians. 179.00 excluding the next day air
