Nikon May be Facing a Class Action Lawsuit for D600 Camera Issues


It was bound to happen, but we never thought that it take this long for it to happen. Petapixel by the way of Nikon Rumors is stating that US law firm Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein is trying to gather complaints for a possible class action law suit against Nikon for issues had with the D600–the company’s entry level full frame DSLR. While some report that Nikon had replaced the shutter for them with better results, others state that it is still problematic for them. To recap, the D600 had a sensor problem where due to a faulty shutter dust and oil would gather and therefore also appear in photos.

Nikon’s major response to the issue was replacing the camera with the D610. And even went as far as replacing some D600 cameras with the new D610. Because of this, we’re not sure how far the lawsuit may go.

But if you’re a D600 owner, you may want to contact Nikon about fixing the issue first for you.
