D300 shutter worn out after 62k shots
Mar 16, 2012

In standard DSLR mode (not lifeview) the shutter stays closed after a shot is taken. Switching to lifeview is the only way to open the shutter again. Shooting in lifeview works flawless. Shutter closes and opens fine.

Slightly disappointing for a 2.5 years old cam. Nikon states that the shutter is good for 150k shots. That was one of the reasons I bought this model.

Now what way to go ?

  • Repair ?

  • Buy a D300s ?

  • Buy a D800 ?
