We posted a short while back about Nikon’s plans to fix the D750’s Flare/Reflection issue for anyone who already has the camera and is experiencing it. News from Nikon today tells us how to identify cameras that have already been fixed, for those of you looking to buy a new D750.


According to the Nikon Service advisory, there will be a black dot in the middle of the tripod socket on the bottom of the camera if the camera has had the fix. If you are going to buy a D750, and don’t want the hassle of having to send it in yourself, make sure to check for this black dot before buying a D750 anytime soon.

If you are not sure if your D750 needs to be serviced, you can quickly and easily check by entering your serial number on this website and it will let you know if your D750 will need to be sent in to be fixed.


Overall, the more open Nikon has been about this process, the higher I have thought of their handling of it. This has not been a long drawn out process, but rather a fairly speedy one. Luckily, it seems that Nikon has learned from their handling of the D600 issue. Now, if things like this could stop cropping up in the first place, we wouldn’t have to talk about the handling of issues, ha!

What are your thoughts on this? Do you feel Nikon has handled it sufficiently? Leave a comment below and let us know your thoughts!
