| p.1 #1 · A comment on plastic bodies, the D600 |
Two weeks ago my D600 fell to the asphalt, mounted on my tripod by my lack of attention the camera fell from about 6 feet without anything that could stop it fall
I was horrified and I was in the middle of a paid shoot, no back up camera (my old smaller camera died and havent purchased another), and I see my camera on the ground I know is damage.
I picked it up and examine it, the left side is bent, scratched, the ring that is used to hang the strap is bent and part of the upper frame is cracked, in from the plastic frame around the lens and the Lens release button are exposed..I try to make the piece comeback to its place , my feel is I killed my camera
The AF Motor is not working on my 35 f2D, but
To my surprise on closer look the camera is working, I take my 35mm out and mount a 50 AFS 1.8.. it focuses fine, Is taking pictures, I go around to work and try to be professional and not think on my camera or how much it cost to repair, I hope my insurance covers the accident and carry on finish my portrait session.
Once in my house I manage to make the AF motor work
This fall was killer, it hit the ground with all the earths gravity energy , but the camera survived.
I sent the D600 to repair but I haven't heard from Nikon yet (it arrived last Friday), i just hope it can be properly repaired
I wanted to share my experience, these "plastic" bodies are much stronger that we think
Here are some images
