Looks like Nikon is recalling all D600s to replace the shutter assembly (I guess then technically making it a D610)… Guess I’ll be cameraless for a month or two…

Really?  It was deny, deny, deny and now this.
I am surprised, but I suppose the 610 was an admission of guilt.
I guess you have to send it back, even if there was no problem with yours, to protect against the future.

I think they should be giving everybody some replacements for that time, since it is their fault!

You are correct Mandrake… I did have some dust spots but just used a sensor cleaner to remove… was no big deal, but I’ll send mine back just to cover against any future issue.

 

And I agree with you Oksana!!  Or at least some discount off Nikon products…

Great… You’re back in business!
Did Nikon tell you what they did to the camera?

They owe it to us to do the same for the D7000!!!
My pics were always covered in spots that had to be removed in Lr.
Then I got the sensor cleaned (about $80 bucks) and the spots slowly came
back again.
I have the D7100 now and there is one large spot on images with this one too.
Think it’s about time to contact Nikon to see if they’re going to fix these problems
one day.
Doesn’t seem to be any sensor or shutter issues with Canon or any other leading brands.

Dale… Most Nikon camera’s have a sensor self-cleaning function which is accessed through the Setup Menu.
I tried it with mine, just now and it wasn’t perfect, but worked to a degree.  Cleaning is discussed on pages
313 through 317 of the D7100 User Manual.

I think dust spots happen with most DSLRs due to the nature of the beast.
The problem with the D600 was oil and that’s a whole other matter.

Mandrake is correct… it was oil spots coming from the shutter mechanism.  Dust getting on the sensor when you change lenses happens with all DSLRs.  Also, cleaning dust off the sensor is very easy (the oil was tougher to get off, but it was still a “DIY” job)… there are many videos on it (but perhaps that is another video Oksana could post as well :-))
