Camera servicing
« on: June 15, 2019, 07:09:39 pm »
Do DSLRs need to be sent in for a general "service" every so often, in the absence of any specific fault, and if so what needs doing?
I was under the impression that it was good practice to get them serviced every year. Emailed Nikon and they replied back saying if you use it every day it's probably a good idea, but if not, it can be done "less frequently".
I probably use mine every day when I'm on holiday but then there are long periods when I don't use it.
Sent it in anyway cos I've had it a few years now and it never has been serviced, and it needs a new rubber eyepiece cover anyway.
But just wondering whether other people bother getting theirs serviced.
It is what it is. It's not what it's not, so it must be what it is.

nope.  Unless something breaks I ignore apart from cleaning the sensor when needed and occasionally check the lens fine-tuning (microadjust on canon, don't know what nikon calls it)
