Has anyone with the digital SLRs had a problem with their shutters staying open. Luckily I have an extended warranty, but I wanted to know if this was a recurring problem. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Stan

Have you had your D30 a long time? How many images have you shot with it?

One of the interesting things about the new digital cameras is that lots of pros are picking up semi-pro equipment. For example, the Nikon D100 (based on the N80) instead of the D1x (based on the F5).

I read somewhere that the life expectancy for a Nikon N80 shutter was around 30,000 images...... At 10,000 - 15,000 a year, that means the camera would last 24 - 36 months before a shutter failure.....

Something to think about!

Thanks
Bob

Thanks Warren,
I've taken about 25,000 images on the camera, so I guess its about that time for it to go bad. When I purchased the camera I didn't realize that the parts were almost disposable. I've only had the camera for about 18 months. If that is the norm, the photographers should be warned of that potential expense. Everyone should purchase the extended warranties on these cameras.

It Seems to me that it\'s a side effect

of digital photography.
I shoot much more during a photo session than I used to when I was using film.
20000-30000 shots are easily reached now in 1-2 years.
Good point....
