D800 high pitch shutter noise - out of the box
Feb 22, 2014


Today arrived a Nikon D800 I bought.

I have done some first test shots and I've noticed that the shutter has a very strange noise (i've used other rented d800 cameras before). The noise specifically happens when the mirror returns to its normal position. Also easy to listen if you go from live view to eye finder shooting.

The noise can be seen in this video, it's the same issue:

I'm wondering if this is normal or not. Should I ask for a replacement? The camera works fine but it's just the noise like a metal cheap sound.

I would appreciate people knowing about similar issues
