Share your camera shutter life ending experience..
« on: May 31, 2010, 02:59:06 PM »
Hello Piphols,

I would appreciate if you could share your experiences before your camera's shutter life has ended. Any signs of symptoms? I've read some from the net but I want to hear your personal experiences.

During my last shoot, there were times when I can't take a shot even though the shutter release button is fully pressed. On my viewfinder I can't really see the subject as if it's being blurred /darken out (or maybe i'm seeing the shutter itself?)

And I've noticed that my battery icon indicates that it is empty although it is fully charged. I have to reinsert the battery from the grip to come back to normal. Take note that the grip is fully connected to the camera (not loosen up)

I'm using Nikon D80 btw.

Regards,

Max

bakit mo iniisip yan? shoot lang nang shoot!  :o :o :o

malamang battery mo may problema. the fact na nakikita mo pa yun subject ibig sabihin andyan pa yun mirror. its either out of focus sya or nadale ne battery mo
kakatakot nga yan. dalhin mo agad sa pagawaan ::)

Sir try using the camera without the grip. If the same thing happens, check the battery life detail. It (the battery) may be on its last legs.  BTW i'm using a d80 with more than 100k mileage and still counting. Strong.

thanks for your suggestion bro, checked the battery info after the shoot, ni hindi pa naubos yung isang battery 100% / 44%.

pero baka nga battery ha? hmmm, naoovercharge ko din kasi minsan yung batt e O_O

Since your battery is ok, it may be the grip's power terminal. Just to be sure, use the camera without the grip and see if the same thing happens. BTW I have read somewhere that when your shutter dies, you will get an "ERR" on the LCD.

@taptap, When your shutter dies, you can have it replaced. Don't worry. Just shoot.:)

anyway, as arjay said.. you can always replace it.

try kong magshoot ng walang batt grip. thanks for the "ERR on the LCD" tip.

did anyone experienced issues with your camera before the shutter dies off? (or wala pang piphols na nakakarating sa ganong level kasi narereplace kagad ang body? hehehe)

Bago bumigay yung D300 ko last month, few times muna siya na nag-stock ang mirror. wala kang makikita sa viewfinder, as in total black. pero nakaka-shot pa siya. then after nun hindi na talaga nag-shot, tapos whirl sound na lang ang nadidinig ko pag nagki-click ako ng shutter. yung tunog na parang dumudulas lang yung gear. tapos may ERR na sa LCD. By the way, 196,000+ na ang shot nya nung mangyari yun.. nanghihinayang lang ako kasi hindi umabot ng 200k ang actuations. mahinang klase pala ang shutter ng D300 ko.  ;D ;D pero ok na siya ngayon, napalitan na ng bagong shutter sa CDSC kaya parang brand new na ulit siya. back to zero actuation pero may 50 shots+ na agad kasi tinesting pa.  ;D ;D

wag matakot mag-shoot, ubos kung ubos ang shutter!  :D :D
