p.1 #1 · My shutter issues, have they gone away or "gone away"?


Was shooting an sports event this morning, and the shutter on my D700 started slowing down while I was shooting. It was a lot like how it would act when you run out of buffer space (click click click click..click..click....click.....click.....click), but I was shooting jpeg basic/small, and the buffer never got below like r40. At one point the shutter started sounding really crunchy, and then it just stopped working.

I switched to my backup, but now that I'm back home, the D700 is working fine, and sounds normal. I've never had intermittent mechanical problems with a shutter, they generally either work, or don't. But maybe that is a real thing. It was pretty cold this morning, and I was going in and out of a warmer tent, so perhaps it was just a temperature/condensation issue?

Any thoughts would be appreciated, so I can start budgetting for a new shutter if that seems likely.

Start budgeting. Noises like that are never good.

Not sure, I'd say between 50 and 75,000

Well, the D700 shutter should be good for that, but then again, anything electronic can and will go bad sometime.

Just for laughs, have you checked your battery to see if its **holding** its charge?
