Today, Nikon released an official statement in regards to the reported Reflection/Flaring issue with some of the D750 cameras. We first noticed the issue being reported during the last several weeks, though some mentions of it can be found as far back as a month ago.


In case you are unaware, the Reflection/Flare issue involves a dark band at the top of the frame when a D750 is shot with a flare or bright reflection in the frame. The issue also appears to only affect some D750 bodies. As mentioned above, Nikon addressed the issue officially today.

“We have received indications from some users that when photographing scenes in which a bright light source, such as the sun or high-intensity lighting, is at a certain position along the top border of the frame, flare with an unnatural shape may sometimes occur in images captured with the D750 digital SLR camera.

We are currently looking into measures to address this issue. Further details will be announced as soon as they are determined.”

It is nice that Nikon has jumped into action on this relatively quickly. Lord knows that they want to avoid another D600 sensor dust level of incompetence again. The DIY fixes for the problem appear to be fairly simple, so it will be interesting to see how soon Nikon is able to come up with something official for affected users.
