Shot a game last night with my new to me D3. Early on I found the shutter speed jumping from shot to shot. It would drop down during continuous shooting then shoot up. I was shooting in Manual. While trying to troubleshoot the issue I found it did the same in Aperture Priority.
I did a reset and it worked fine for a while then it started again. A second reset solved the issue for the rest of the game.
I bought this D3 at a local retailer. It was a demo with only just over 18,000 clicks on it. I just got it back from Nikon where they had to fix a loose meter switch. They apparently made a few other adjustments according to the service report. This was all covered under warranty.
Any idea what this issue is? Anyone else have this happen?

You probably had bracketing activated. The two button reset is one way to cancel the function. Try to replicate your problem by activating bracketing yourself (refer to the manual) and if the camera response is similar to what you experienced earlier, you have the answer.
Hope this helps...JL

Thanks for the response. I'll check that when I get back home. I'm thinking that if that's the case it has to be programmed into the function button. That would be the only explanation of it activating at random, I must have hit the button.
