Now I wonder if I should call up Nikon and send it to them for cleaning or replacement or Cameta

I guess they never refurbished as the outside of the pretty Nikon box indicates . A little misleading wouldn't you say.

I don't want to spend the time wet cleaning it, never done it before and I don't think I should have to since it is suppose to have come clean to start.

I wonder who I would return it to if I so desire. Nikon or Cameta.

If you don't want to send it in then you should have bought a 610, sick of you whiners ! You knew the 600 was a gamble.

Re: Test of D600 from Cameta
In reply to Alpha Tech, 10 months ago

For those who went in on the $1299 Cameta special on the D600, those cameras were not guaranteed as 'Factory Refurbished" - instead, what the ad stated was that this batch of cameras was "Reconditioned", which encompassed either straight customer returns, floor samples, etc, which could be examined by a third-party technician (not necessarily Nikon) to ensure technical functionality, reboxed, and resold.    I was curious about the term "reconditioned" and clicked on the term descriptor on their website.  I think the D600 cameras now currently offered are actual "Factory Refurbished" (by Nikon), hence the slightly higher price.

I think Cameta technically was in their right to offer $1299 for the "Reconditioned" cameras (it was stated on the ad) - alot of people, however, didn't clarify the difference between "Reconditioned" vs "Factory Refurbished", and simply assumed all non-new D600 MUST be "Factory Refurbished".  Caveat emptor, I suppose...or maybe the devil is in the details.  I've not purchased from Cameta, but I understand they have an acceptable return policy, plus they extend the service warranty up to one-year.

I received my camera Dec. 5th and yes it has the oil splash even though it is a refurbished model.  I'm going to send it to Nikon and call it a day.  The $1399 price with only 422 actuations and a 1 year warranty is hard to beat.

BTW, I spoke to Cameta Customer Service and I asked if the shutter was replaced in the refurbished cameras and it was stated more than likely they were not. However, if it is sent in for repair directly to Nikon or through Cameta the shutter will be replaced as the permanent fix for the oil splash.  Refurbished sold camera's may not necessarily mean the shutter was replaced just that it was returned to manufacture specifications.

Why is anyone still buying then D600?
In reply to jjsterling, 10 months ago

Did you get it for $99.99 plus 1000 reward points and a Cameta tote bag?

It's unfixable hence the D610.

If my memory serves me the ad did say "Factory Refurbished". The current ad says "Nikon D600 Digital SLR Camera Body - Factory Refurbished - 25488 "

In fact the order confirmation says "factory refurbished "and the box the camera came in says "refurbished "

Sure I anticipated a potential of some problems. However being "Factory Refurbished" I would have thought they would have addressed the issue in some manner but that appears not to have done.

Nikon has hurt their reputation by not addressing this problem from the start.  I'm sure people have talked about this to all ends.  So I won't go on.

BTW I have been able to blow off a lot of sensors dust. But Monday I plan on sending it to Nikon for further work. The phone support says that it takes 7-10 days to clean and 2-3 weeks for the whole process. I wonder if I drive it up to their office it would faster. Doubt it.

Wrong.  Many people have report no more problems once Nikon replaced the shutter.  Lens rentals has reported the D610 shutter looks exactly the same as the D600 shutter.  The only reason the D610 exists is because of internet hysteria like your post that ruined the reputation of a perfectly good camera that just had a manufacturing defect in some of the production runs, not even the majority of them either.

We never heard from the silent majority of thousands of D600 users that had no problems at all and so no reason to go online and post about the camera. So the skewed perception online was that all D600s had the problem when they didn't.  Rather than fight this negative and incorrect perception Nikon just improved a couple of small things so they could rename the camera to the D610 after the defect was sorted out by passing the need to convince the online community that the D600 was "fixed" when only a small number of them ever had the problem anyway.

Yet more FUD.

I have one of the expensive, battery operated Visible Dust brushes which I stopped using on Nikon cameras after the D300. There is too much risk of oil splatter with models from the D3 and onward. The oil can be transferred to the brush. There is no easy method of cleaning the brush after that occurs.

So whenever we see spots, we should send it it Nikon to see if it is oil, and if not, we can use a brush? The nonsense on this forum is sometimes unbelievable. A brush can be cleaned in pure solvent such as Eclipse. Or discarded. If a camera regularly produces oil spots, send it back.

Well said. And if you buy a returned camera, that surely greatly increases the chance it is one of the problem units.

I asked here for recent buyers to give their experience and I think they were all positive.

True.  Most of the people who didn't have problem just kept their D600s and have no reason to get a D610 so almost all the refurb D600s out their now are more than likely returns from people who had the dust/oil issues.  Even the people selling used ones on eBay are probably people trying to get rid of problem D600s so they can replace them with D610s.  So there are good deals to be had as long as one assumes when buying that they will have to send the camera to Nikon to get the shutter replaced or deal with cleaning the sensor a lot.

D610 just came out recently. Are we sure it is free of any problems?

Just a thought worth maybe two cents.

No, I did not attack you, I said that what you said was nonsense. I did not say that you are whining and I did not tell you to shut up. There is a difference between criticising a technical statement, and personal abuse.

A brush is NOT the proper tool to remove oil from a sensor.

That is true but that is is not what you said. I made a statement that your advice was nonsense. I use a blower, a brush and wet cleaning, when appropriate, and in that order for the simple reason that wet cleaning is the most time consuming and more likely to cause issues, although when done with care it is fine. A brush when used properly is not more likely to scratch the sensor. And any oil if present would be minuscule, and removable with Eclipse or other solvent.

Learn how to use a wet sensor cleaning kit.

I did that 10 years ago.
