Nikon just announced that itâ€™s expanding its recall of its D750 DSLR over the shutter issue that caused ugly lens flares to show up in some photographersâ€™ photos.As you may remember, photographers first noticed and began complaining about the issue back in December 2014. After the reports spread widely online, Nikon quietly pulled the D750 from store shelves around the world, and then officially confirmed that it was making repairs on affected cameras, which were found to be those produced between October and November 2014.
Well, unfortunately for Nikon D750 shooters, those werenâ€™t all the cameras that were affected. Nikon issued another D750 service advisory yesterday, announcing that the recall is being expanded to D750 DSLRs made between December 2014 and June 2015.
You can see if your D750 is affected by checking your serial number on the Nikon website.
â€œIf your D750 camera may be affected, as confirmed with the serial number check above, you will be provided with the necessary information to obtain service for this issue free of charge,â€ Nikon writes. â€œOnce your D750 camera is received by Nikon, your D750 cameraâ€™s shutter will be examined and replaced, and your D750 camera returned to you free of charge, even if your D750 camera warranty has expired.â€
