    Explains why they wanted $170 for a part of a little hinge that broke
    on a D70 flash I had.

    I wonder how many of these shops will stop selling Nikon because of
    this? Stupid move, Nikon.

    In Europe, Nikon will still supply parts to independent repairers and
    any attempt to stop supplying them would be dealt with through the
    courts. Competition law is very strong in the EU and any such attempt
    to limit parts supplies would be very firmly dealt with.

    Having said that, and while I realise that experience doesn't
    necessarily translate across the Atlantic, I would never take any
    modern Nikon gear to be serviced at anything other than a
    Nikon-approved service centre. I have had some really bad experiences
    with non-Nikon-approved service centres but was completely satisfied
    with the service from the Nikon-approved service centre I used.

    All in the past tense though, as what little Nikon gear I still own is
    for sale.

    The author of the article seems clueless about how the US auto repair industry
    works. Automobile manufacturers are many years ahead of Nikon, routinely
    withholding even what their engine computer error codes mean, so that only
    their "authorized" dealers can understand what has gone wrong with their cars.

    I believe there's been some litigation about that though, and even threats of
    new laws. So my information may now be somewhat out-of-date.

    Regarding the web page above, there were a few ridiculous points, the
    worse being:

    QUOTE
    If you depend on your camera for work, as Jarvie does, having to mail
    your camera in to be fixed will cost you more than just the price of the
    repair: lost business, shipping costs, and time lost waiting for the
    Postal Service to shuttle the camera back and forth.
    UNQUOTE

    Really? Does the writer REALLY believe Jarvie has a single camera?




    As to Nikon I believe the policy as stated is absolutely stupid - UNLESS
    it also allows more shops to qualify as Nikon repair stations.

    I know a few local press photogs who are stuck with paper owned Nikon
    gear that they have to cycle through a Nikon approved service. The
    service is very good (quality) but slow in time. No real issue - they
    have plenty of spare bodies, lenses and flashes. For others it could be
    a drag.

    I noted the story is promoted by Ifixit.com. Presumably they are no
    longer on the list of Nikon approved repairers. Perhaps at least some
    of their comments are due to sour grapes.

    But absolutely having to have two cameras (or three if you believe you
    need two working ones to take to a gig) is itself a cost, and a rather
    large one.

    I think "promoted" might not be a good choice of words. It is their
    story. Camera repair is one part of their business, and when a
    manufacturer, or more likely in this case a distributer in Nikon USA
    denies them part of that business when they are more than capable of
    handling the task I guess they might not be happy about it. They have
    just made their situation known to all who might care.

    Ifixit is a great, knowledgeable, & geeky repair service specializing
    in repair of all types of electronics including digital cameras, Macs
    and Apple products in particular. They gained a reputation for being
    first in line to demonstrate tear down and reveals of Apple product
    innards.

    Along with making repairs they also provide DIY kits along with
    replacement parts and video guides. Here is one such DIY guide for an
    iPhone 4 repair.
    < http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBpFPfx5aBw&feature=relmfu >

    These guys are very good at what they do, and best of all they are
    local for me. I have only bought a logic board from them for my
    father's PowerBook G4 and I have been quite satisfied. In my opinion
    these are the guys who should be working at the Apple "Genius Bars".

    And I would expect them to be upset if Apple took away their access to
    Apple parts. I wonder what they would say about Apple?

    That would be far more damaging to their business than the loss of
    local Nikon repairs, and I imagine they would be just as vocal in
    protest since they have a fairly large platform. However, IMBW, but I
    suspect they have a somewhat different relationship with Apple and the
    folks in Cupertino.

    I don't know of any pro photog who brings less than 2 cameras to a gig,
    event, shoot, wedding, etc. His fees depend on taking photos at the
    time needed, not making excuses about failed eqt. Another commercial
    photographer nearby always has 3 cameras (sports, medical, etc.).
    Another brings 2 identical rigs (everything from cameras to lenses to
    lighting) to every wedding.

    The capital is depreciated at 20% per year making it a sliver of annual
    revenue. A couple news photogs I know always have 3 cameras, each with
    the 1 of the holy trinity lenes mounted. Saves time switching. Those
    cameras are owned by the paper, however. (Who still lay it off at
    20%/year).

    I am normally highly in favor of small business. While there are many
    good and decent repair services, I have also heard of some pretty bad
    screw ups. The screwed up cameras frequently end up at Nikon repair
    services, who then charge a lot for the fix. Indeed the repair has to
    cover the cost of the botch, plus what it would have cost anyway. The
    consumer then blames Nikon for overcharging, while forgetting that the
    sloppy repair was the cause.
    I live about 10 minutes from Nikon and have found them to be fair and
    reasonable in their policies. My main bitch is that they will not repair
    older models and older lenses.
    If you or I decide to open a retail camera store we would be able to
    sell most consumer grade Nikons, but would not be authorized to sell the
    professional line.

    You are fortunate to have Nikon 10 minutes from your home. You might
    have noted the disassembled camera was a D70. These folks will repair
    older models, they do not touch lenses. It seems that Nikon USA is
    going to deny small repair businesses such as Ifixit the parts to
    repair older and discontinued cameras you have noted they will not
    repair.

    As far as botched repairs by unqualified folks, I agree, they have no
    reason to complain if Nikon fixing things results in a higher charge.
    That is a risk they took. However with regard to diagnostics with
    electronic devices such as digital cameras and computers they are more
    than competent.

    ....and for me they are only 40 minutes from where I live.

    that had something to do with my decision to stick with Nikon when I
    went digital.

    For how long should a manufacturer continue to manufacture parts for
    obsolete models.

    I have an Abu-Garcia fishing reel. circa 1971 and made in France. The
    new ones are pure junk. When I need parts I go to some guy who has
    stocked old reels that he acquired for parts. I would not be surprised
    if a cannibal industry grew up.

    I usually carry two to an event or, say, a building construction tour, where
    it would be hard to stop and change lenses. But I draw the line there. I can't
    really imagine how I'd juggle three.

    I actually think that this may have come up in one of the newsgroups some
    years back and that one of the participants lectured me on how it's possible
    to carry more than two. But I'm afraid I remain unconvinced. Maybe if I were
    thirty years younger, ... :^)

    The Nikon repair centre in Auckland was about 30 minutes drive from
    where I live. The last camera I had repaired there was a FM (not a FM1
    or FM2, but a genuine FM) whose meter had stopped working. That was
    about two years ago.

    Since then Nikon agents have bought the privately owned repair centre
    and moved it into there own premises. Maybe its part of a worldwide
    drive to concentrate all repairs in Nikon's own hands. Who knows?

    I didn't say they took all three out of the car for every event.

    I've never carried more than 2 and even that's a PITA. Was really a
    PITA on film as the "story line" would be broken across different rolls
    of film. Even with digital the sequencing is not linear v. the events.

    Quite easy to sort/rename etc files via date/timestamp. I don't see
    how this is a real issue. And yes I do use multiple cameras.
