Great camera, but developed a sensor problem
on 13 December 2014
After 8 months of use and some spectacular shots captured with this camera, it unfortunately seemed to develop quite a serious problem with the image sensor where it would intermittently capture shots with only the green channel present and sometimes shots where some or all of the frame is pink. After much searching online for a solution and trying firmware updates, several different SanDisk cards etc. it turns out that it is a problem with the sensor itself.
Such a shame as the output from this camera has been amazing. The dynamic range and the many features in such a compact body made this a great camera. However, having previously owned a D600 that developed the well documented 'oil spots on the sensor' issue, I am starting to doubt the quality and reliability of Nikon cameras. As I have quite a few expensive Nikon lenses, however, I will probably have to stick with the brand. All electronic devices do have a failure rate associated with them and I hope I have just been unlucky! Thought I would post this review on here in case anyone else has the same problem.
