D5100 LCD Screen Hinge
You are worrying needlessly. Find something else more important to worry about like your health. The hinge will be trouble-free for years. You'll be in the market for another camera before the hinge goes bad unless you damage it by accident.
Does anyone know if there is a way to tighten the articulating LCD screen hinge on the D5100? Not that it is currently loose, but I'm afraid that eventually, with usage, it will loosen itself up. I've searched up for teardown pictures of the D5100 but was unable to find a close up picture of the hinge assembly. I'd imagine it'd be as easy as tightening a screw. Or does it actually have to be sent to Nikon?
Bare with me as I'm still babying this thing 3 months after buying it, it's my first DSLR and a big leap from an almost 5 year old point and shoot. I may just be overly paranoid about it, but being the first time I've spent this much money on a camera I'd like to keep it as pristine as possible.
