    well i recently bought a new Nikon d90 from an authorised dealer but in 7 days unluckly it fell and broke and when i went to a authorised servive centre they gave me a budget of more then 50% of value. it is my very first camera so i look forward for some support.
    And they suggest to buy another camera just 7 days and no positive support from nikon

    Hi maxsteel sar,

    I bet your stomach dropped when your new camera fell, I would have been sick. Sooo, Did you purchase another D90? I understand that it's a great camera and a good choice due to price, versatility, etc. Welcome to the world of the Nikonites,
    Happy Shooting!

    Hi maxsteel,

    Direct support from Nikon is impossibly terrible. They never reply emails. I luckily got a hold with someone on the phone, they told me to drive to upstate New York, about 70 miles from the city. To me it's like a chance of being rejected or wasting efforts.

    Once you bought the camera you're pretty much on your own. Good luck!

    I should think that if you paid for an additional store warranty it should have been covered, I am not sure if the one yr Nikon warranty would cover the camera.

    The D90 is an excellent camera, I hope you replaced it.!!!

    Hello maxsteel,

    I would be just as upset if I dropped my camera too! So would be my wife, who bought my Nikon as a birthday-Christmas-anniversary present. My advice is to do what I do: Put that camera strap around your neck and never carry the camera around with just your hand on the body or the strap worn on the wrist (like I've seen even some pros do!). When I'm not using it, its in a well-padded camera bag. I even have the habit of putting the strap around my neck *while* removing the camera from the bag, and while I am putting it back. I've never dropped it yet (knock on wood) in the two years I've owned it, and I shoot in all kinds of conditions. And I never have to clean my sensor, because I only have one lens that stays on 24-7.

    As for the support issue, I can't make a judgment on them yet, because I've never needed service from them, but then again, my warranty has long expired. Good luck.

    Received my first DSLR Camera, the D3000 and with that being said I am definately a Novice here. Unfortunately, I believe I have committed to taking photos at indoor hs basketball games and thought it would be easier than it has been - Just when I think I undrestand what I need to do, I feel like my pictures are not getting any better - any advice?

    I recently bought Nikon D3200 with 18-105 lens. I want to purchase 55-300 lens to cover more range. I have come across three lenses which are
    1. Nikkor AF-S 55-300mm VR f/4-5.6 DX-Nikon DX
    2. Tamron SP 70-300mm f/4-5.6 VC Di USD Telephoto Lens
    3. Nikkor AF-S 70-300mm VR f/4-5.6-Nikon FX &&&& DX

    I am not sure which one to buy. Can somebody help in understanding the products. Between option 1 and 3, both looks similar to me except one is 55-300 and other is 70-300 mm. But 70-300mm is costlier than 55-300, I am not sure why. Please help in deciding me the lens.

    Do not buy Nikkor 55-300 which is a slow one 70-300 is much better ..If u are on a tight budget, simply go for Nikkor 55-200 ..sharp least weight ..fast

    Justin reply to the dropped D90 and the possibility of an angry wife, I recently dropped my D700, well it vibrated off a table in a local theatre where I was taking pics of the bands playing. I missed the grab as the camera and f2.8 80-200mm lens dropped of the table onto the floor (so I thought) I grabbed up the camera, the lens looked ok, no obvious damage to the camera either, pressed the button and bang bang two shots taken all was good. Then I looked up, my wife was as white as a sheet and looked ready to throw up. After making sure she was OK and the colour began to return to her cheeks I discovered that the very end of the lens hadn't in fact landed on the floor but just behind the rubberised toe cap of her converse trainer right on top of the knuckle for her big toe. Once we discovered that nothing was broken I did apologise and then thanked her for her worthy sacrifice LOL
