More Nikon D750 cameras are at risk of developing a shutter fault than was previously thought, the company has warned.

Last year, Nikon warned D750 users that the shutter does not work properly in some cameras made in October and November 2014.

However, Nikon has this week revealed that the same glitch may also affect models made between December 2014 and June 2015.

In an updated advisory notice, Nikon Europe said the fault sometimes results in ‘shading of a portion of images’.

Nikon again urges customers to check the seven-digit serial number of their camera to find out whether it is one of the affected models.

Nikon UK had yet to respond to a request for comment at the time of writing.

Nikon’s updated statement, dated 29 February 2016:
Thank you for choosing Nikon for your photographic needs.

In July of 2015, we announced that the shutter in some Nikon D750 digital SLR cameras manufactured in October and November of 2014 does not function normally, sometimes resulting in shading of a portion of images. Since that time, our examination of the issue has clarified the fact that the same issue may occur with D750 cameras manufactured from December, 2014 through June, 2015.

Therefore, any D750 manufactured from October, 2014 through June, 2015 is eligible for inspection and repair of its shutter.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused.

    Your camera doesn’t go to ‘Nikon’ – it goes to an authorised repair agent. It could be anywhere. My experience with sending technical or delicate items back for manufacturer-sanctioned repair is that they come back worse than they went off abut 50% of the time. You take the risk if you want.

    You think Nikon has dusty workshops? You think Nikon won’t take care of your camera? These are ridiculous assertions. If your camera potentially has a fault and the manufacturer is offering to fix it, free of charge, you’d be foolish not to get it sorted, regardless of whether it affects only certain types of usage. No one is better suited to maintain your kit than the manufacturer. They will fix it in the same dust-free environment that they built it in and re-assemble it to the same standard as a new camera. Have you ever bought a factory-refubished camera or lens? I have and will happily do so again.

    I’m not stating this as fact but I’ve heard the current issue affects only HSS for flash, so if you don’t use that feature you won’t notice any shading. Sending your precision D750 to a dusty workshop to be stripped down and rebuilt for the sake of that issue may not be worth it with the potential for dust or damage to the sensor when they remove the shutter.
