Re: D700 - Good weather camera only? (img)

Well to precise I just got a new shutter for the D700. I was out to get some great frost shots. We had dry weather and cold ... relatively speaking.

I have two batteries in the camera and the grip. Batteries were no issue at all. I was on 150 shots in the shoot suddenly the mirror would not go back and the shot would not get saved. I then would turn the camera off and on then press the release button. Then the mirror would go back. This went on for a while and then I could not go on I got a large "Err" instead of the shutter speed!

My friend had the same. And told me that if he would gradually warm up the camera it would work fine again.
Both of us had the mirror pre release for the mirror going all the time.

I went out today and got the same results again! But not as often. And I was able to shoot more than yesterday!
