Last time was the thin green line on the LCD display, went back harvey norman to have a 1-to-1 exchange (14 days policy). After using it for 2 weeks, this problem appear and the image is the same as the one in this link and occur at any shutter speed. The shutter minor just got stuck when the button is pressed. Now have to go to nikon centre for this. My friend going to kill me for recommending her the D50...... :cry:

Because it's bascially past two weeks, after the 7 days 1-1 exchange policy.

I frankly don't see why your friend should kill you over a D50 issue which can be resolved. :) Sh!t happens.

Blaming the brand is not going to help.

Well, I just don't buy from HN anymore. Got a few products from there, other brands, and most times got problems. Too much Sh!t from HN....:dunno:

Not just because I am a D50 owner, or just uses Nikon equipment mainly, I have no problem with my D50 since Sep 05. Usually will buy photographic equipment from photographic shops like CP, MS, EG, TK13, etc.

Every brand of electronic equipment will usually have some batch with problems.

I my self got 2 defective D70 before i got a good one. from HN.

First one could not even shoot, when i press shutter release the shutter just jam and no photo taken. have to switch off and on again.

Second one have 8 stuck pixel, glass bits in lens.

As a normal consumer just bo pian lo, never buy from them again.

I truly believe they sell refurbish products or something. What are the chances of two lousy sets in a roll?

That's why you can get extended warranty from HN for an added price...;p

Buy photographic equipment from local HN at your own risk...:nono:

True true,

But having extended warranty has it's advantage, only if Nikon have their own, i don't mind paying nikon for extended warranty like apples apple care.
 

So far, I have only 3 Nikon camera over 5 years, not a lot for comparison, but I have had no problem with all the cameras at all. If not for the EN-EL3 battery switch, I would not have visited NSC at all. I had to search for the map to go there last month....;)

Probably for me, I won't need such extended warranty for Nikon.
