Nikon’s D750 headache has officially become a full-blown migraine. Two years since it issued its first recall because of shutter issues, which affected units produced between October 2014 and June 2015, the Japanese giant has now expanded the recall to include cameras manufactured from July 2014 to September 2014 and from July 2015 to September 2016. The issue, where the shutter shades part of a photo, had already forced Nikon to recall units made from October 2014 to June 2015.
That means the recall now affects all units produced between July 2014 and September 2016.
As previously, if your camera falls within the problem period, Nikon will repair it free of charge, irrespective of the status of your warranty. The service advisory below contains more information and a link for checking your serial number.
