Nikon D300s Repair Time-lapse

March 28, 2011 | Category: Uncategorized



This is a time-lapse of a repair on my girlfriend’s D300s. Her Compact Flash card pin was bent to the extent that it needed to be replaced. I edited this video in under 5 minutes so the quality is pretty low, but it is fun to watch. The repair performed by master technician, Steve Sweringen of The Camera Clinic in Sparks, NV.

The? repair was successful. A bent Compact Flash card pin was removed and replaced with one from a donor Canon SLR (40D if I remember correctly) and the repair took about an hour with Steve stopping to explain what he was doing.

    geez… and I thought replacing a digitizer on an iPhone was a pain in the ass! This only confirms I need not gleefully dive off into a Nikon!
