  • Replied in Patona
    I can recommend Patona batteries (a German make). I have had good experience with Patona replacements for original batteries for Nikon P7700 (slightly inferior to the original Nikon battery, but as ...
  • The problem: (1) Currently bookmarks can only be displayed ordered by the last post made to the thread (the newest first) in which the bookmarked post appeared. So, if I today stumble on and bookmark a ...
  • It is similar with TC-DC58C 2x: it has a 58 mm thread while the lens is 52 mm. Totally agree, I haven't tried it yet and I am very reluctant to even attempt it. But I am actually more concerned ...
  • Created question thread Teleconverters...
    Do you use teleconverters designed for compact cameras attached to the front element of an exchangeable m43 lens? I have a Canon TC-DC58C 2x teleconverter back from the Powershot A650 IS days and I ...
  • Well yes, the frame on which the sensor is mounted moves if you shake the camera (while it is switched off) and there is a tiny sound caused by this that can be heard if everything else is quiet ...
  • I hear it too, when the camera is switched off. Check the video linked to in this thread , around 6:40 time mark, to see the likely "culprit" for the sound you're hearing.
  • I am glad to report that my camera (P7700 in my case, but the same multicontroller issue) is fixed as well! The cost of replacing the module containing the dial and the buttons around it was 52 ...
  • I know, but I am looking for something smaller now. If I wanted to stay with a DSLR I would pick a D7500. The m43 format looks very appealing to me right now...

  • What I meant was that I was looking at cheaper prosumers to replace my present cameras. I am looking at cameras such as Oly EM5 II, Panasonic G85 or Canon M5 to replace the D5000. If I was looking...

  • I know zero about corporate management and I know Nikon is involved in different areas of industry. I can only comment as a consumer of let's say cheaper "prosumer" cameras. I have been on a...

  • Well, I sure hope your P7800 will last. There seems there is no rule. My camera (P7700 not P7800, but it's the same design) first started do show the "symptoms" after about 6 months. After getting ...
  • Ha! That's exactly the status of this dial on my camera after the last resuscitation attempt. Same here, I am waiting for a reply from our local reps as well. Many Nikon cameras have apparently the ...
  • I thought it was discontinued two years ago ;-). You're absolutely right, don't sell it, it's a fine little camera. Sadly, nobody makes cameras like this anymore.
  • In case anybody is thinking about attempting disassembling the camera to solve the issue - this is my experience: After several attempts to solve the issue of malfunctioning and/or later ...
  • André, so yours isn't fixed either. Too bad, sorry to hear this. Nikon should get its collective ass kicked for incorporating this design flaw in such a superb line of cameras and above all for ...
  • I hope you have also read about my unsuccessful attempt above . I tried twice again, this time "attacking" the buttons that stopped working after the first attempt. Both times the buttons "woke up" ...
  • Thank you André. Yesterday it looked really well, the initial stickiness of the rotary wheel was gone after a few hours and everything was working as it should except for those three buttons being ...
  • Unfortunately the final results are not good. Yesterday, several hours after my post, I had a chance to use the camera more extensively. The wheel rotation returned to normal again (??) and both ...
  • Replied in I did it...
    I did it! I removed the battery and the card and protected the LCD display. First I applied some compressed gas ( Green Clean Air Power spray) to the edge of both offending controls (the ...
  • Thank you. I will try it too. I hope it works or at least doesn't make it worse. Those instructions for how to take the camera apart will be the last resort so it's good to have them handy just in ...
