What started so great ended up so bad...

morganica, Amazon
15 September 2005
  • Summary: I've used many digital cameras and when this one came out, I was poised to be thrilled. Read the reviews, tested it out in the store against other cameras, and bought it. I wanted a high-quality camera that shot RAW files and was more portable (i.e., no bag full of lenses to haul around) and versatile than my older cameras. The thrill lasted for about three months. Then I started having some trouble stabilizing the image--even on a tripod I was getting blurring.

WARNING -- AVOID NIKON - POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE

Scott in Durham, Amazon
11 July 2005
  • Summary: BE ADVISED -- Nikon provides NO warranty coverage for the rechargeable batteries they provide with their cameras! I purhcased this camera and after approximately one month the battery would no longer charge. I called Nikon tech support and was informed that they could not help me -- I would simply have to buy a new battery. I escalated the issue to a supervisor who was even less sympathetic and totally unwilling to even meet me halfway.

26 December 2005
  • Excerpt: "I bought my camera 18months ago, it cost me £750. It was my first SLR, and I have had some amazing results from it, on auto and manual. Lately, I've had troubles. My camera would change settings on it's on accord, the flash would go off when switched off, it was making squeaky noises, and refused to go onto manual settings. I was using it today, took some pix of the squirrells and birds in the garden. It was playing up, squeaking and changing ...
