  • 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 ...
  • André, Thanks a lot for the link!! I am having the same issue with P7700. That's why I have been looking for a capable replacement and there is none... The first time it started happening was just ...
  • Man, where on earth did you find anything nasty or unpleasant in the OP's replies to you in this thread?? I cannot see anything of the kind in his replies. If anything he was actually very polite, ...
  • True... My P7700 is still alive but with progressively more frequent malfunctions. There is nothing to replace it with. Why on earth did Nikon drop the DL line... But to be honest, none of the ...
  • Sorry Pap but based on your posting here, "based on facts" in your vocabulary means "agreeing with your views". You never accept arguments or "evidence" that is contrary to your views, that's the ...
  • Yet you have no problem lecturing the Swedes on this forum about the current and future situation in Sweden! Or the Germans about the situation in Germany etc. You do it all the time but resent ...
  • No, the AMOUNT of light (in photons per second or in watts) is not the same at all and that's essentially why smaller sensors are noisier than bigger ones. However, the amount of light PER UNIT ...
  • How can you be so sure? Are you privy to all the details? You may be right of course, I cannot tell, but to me it looks as if Nikon, with all its troubles, is shooting in all directions and hoping...
