p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · D750 Hot Shoe Problem


Anyone have to replace the hot shoe on a D750 body? I have a body that was misfiring last Saturday and it feels reminiscent of the old D700 hot shoe problem from a few years ago. So was just wondering if anyone else has encountered this on a D750.

Not really encountered the problem with my D750 but it did happen quite a bit on my two D700's.

I bought some overly expensive Nikon WG-AS3 water-guards for my flashes (they help with the support of the flash unit too) and that seems to have sorted the issue.

Maybe try that before you go under the knife?

Dude. My D750 was misfiring for the first time last Saturday too. But I think it was my Cheetah light that was twisting and breaking connection. When I twisted it back it would fire. But I never had it happen before this past weekend. Weird. What flash were you using?

That's crazy, the v860x. Never happened before and I can't replicate it in the studio. It happened twice during the day.

Same flash here. It happened to me when I went to portrait mode and my head bumped the flash. Happened more than twice though.

I was shooting landscape both times that it happened to me. What is so frustrating is that I can not duplicate again.

I just received one of my D750's back from Nikon to repair a loose hot shoe. I was having issues with PocketWizards and Yongou radios firing. The shoe itself was visibly loose. My second D750 goes out for the same work next week.

I am also having misfire issues, I use Godox v860ii's, I think the amount of torque you need to turn the flash head is messing up the contacts on the D750. I sent mine in for repairs, unfortunately I found out my camera is a grey market camera. Not sure what to do now.

Known issue with the D750, just google it. The shoe mount allows the flash to slide too far forward, essentially. Some people fix the problem by placing thin piece of cardboard or plastic in the front of the shoe mount. The other option is put the flash on all the way, tighten it down maybe 3/4 of the way, slide it backward slowly and you'll hear the click of the center pin and then tighten the rest of the way.

Second what chrisfphotog said.

It's frustrating but something you have to deal with if you are going to use the D750. I go with the 'shove something in the gap' method. Before that I did the listen for the click method but sometimes that is impossible in loud situations.

I use the click method and it's easy. I put the flash/trigger all the way in, lock it, and then pull back on it til I hear the click. I don't have any problems with this method and works for my Godox flashes and YN triggers. Every once in awhile while shooting it moves forward again and I just click it back.

Did Nikon ever do a retrofit hot shoe for this? Maybe when it's visiting the service bench for shutter refurb, then could change out this as well.

...Did enough people stop buying the camera to encourage them to fix it? No? Ok then.

No. Does it happen with an original Nikon flash, too? No?
Maybe itīs not Nikon problem at all...

We put a thing in our hot shoes to fix the issue (like Chris mentioned above). In the last week or two, we've had a lot of misfires and random things on some of our cameras though. I cleaned all the shoes with rubbing alcohol and the sliver to 'fix' the hot shoe, but it doesn't seem to have helped too much.

We went about 2 years with no issues. I'm not sure what changed. Part of me wonders if the new Godox firmware did something?

Multiple time per weddings I have to reseat my godox flash or triggers on my D750s because eventually they stop triggering.

Never have any problem with the D810/D800 hotshoes, very annoying indeed.

It happens with the Nikon flashes too but not as much. With the Godox flashes, the front pin does not go in as much as the pins on the Nikon flashes. When you put the Nikon flash in lock, and you put the Godox flash in lock you can see the visible difference.

I never had that much issue with my Nikon flashes but I have the issue all the time using the Godox flashes. I usually wiggle the flash head around until I get a connection and fire but it is pretty awful.

This has also happened to me with Phottix radio slaves as well as Quantum Trios on the D750.
