p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · D2H First Image Black


Hey, I purchased a D2H for those daylight times I'm shooting my kids in sports. I don't need the resolution of newer cameras. I have my D700 for when I go indoors or I'm losing daylight.

I'm curious about the black first image. Is this something Nikon fixed with these cameras? I was aware this camera did this before I purchased it. Is it really a big deal? I might send it in since I'm not shooting anything now. Any idea on the cost to fix it?

Thanks.

Hey Bill, it's not a big deal. As long as it keeps shooting after that first blank shot, you're okay.

You can send it in, but if it works... just keep and use it.

My D2h had the same problem and it was over when they put a new shutter in it. The camera was away for another failure, broken aperture lever due to a new lens without the smal screw that prevents rotating the lens to much at disconnecting, so when the camera was open when they found the shutter was and I only had to pay for the shutter.

I got my D2H used a bit over 5 years ago. It had the first image hiccup when I recieved it. I've put around 40k on it in these 5 years. It still does it, nothing changed, no progression to worse problems. I hit the shutter button twice upon powering it up to get past it. The D2H sometimes has a little odd color reproduction. It's much improved with custom color profiles done with the colorchecker passport. It may be outdated, but it's still a pleasure to shoot, and it's 4.1mp goes further than you may expect.

I used to have that issue -- and it was usually just before the battery was about to go dead.

Hey, thanks for all the re-assuring replies. Can't wait to give it a try.

4MP--I rarely print above 8x10. Mostly send images to FB for friend and family to see.

Yeah, and it is a machine gun @8fps with a fast VF blackout time (37ms). It really is a pleasure to shoot. Files are easy to handle too. Handles AFD lenses as fast as the D1H you sold me a few years ago

These were shot with the D2H with the AFD 85/1.4:

I missed the D1h so much I bought another. I love the files from it, but WB is too finicky, even under partly cloudy skies.

D2H was my first Pro body and just fell in love with it. I am sure you have seen many examples and hope you do not mind me posting one. I think you will love it if you have plenty of light.

Would the first image ERR issues be grounds to argue a slight refund of say $40-50? Considering the camera was purchased from KEH with no mention of the issues.

Also does anyone know if Nikon will service D2H bodies for free to fix the issues - being that this seems quite common .

Mine had this problem up until it died after 105,000 clicks. From what I understand, Nikon no longer fixes the meter issue under warranty (which they did at one time). The shutter issue never had a free fix from what I understand, and I haven't heard of any discounts in sale price for this universally known issue (first shot black frame).
