Hey you with the sad face holding the D600… Wishing it was a D610, and all dust and oil free on the sensor. Don’t get mad… get well even in a class action lawsuit.
American legal firm Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein are taking names & quoting quotes…
Here is their call to action:
Nikon D600 SLR Camera Dust Complaints
Issue: Allegedly defective product
The Nikon D600 is a full frame, digital single lens reflex camera that was introduced to the market in late 2012 and sold for approximately $2,000.
Lieff Cabraser is investigating consumer complaints that the D600 is defective due to its sensor being highly prone to collecting dust spots and/or the sensor becomes damaged due to oil or lubricant contamination from the shutter mechanism. The accumulation of debris on the sensor resulting in impaired images was documented soon after the camera’s introduction.
In February 2013, Nikon issued a service advisory acknowledging that consumers had reported a dust issue with the D600, yet asserted that dust was noticeable in images produced by the D600 only in “some rare cases.”
Nikon did not identify the cause for the debris buildup on the D600 sensor, nor acknowledge, as many consumers have alleged, that this is a widespread problem with the camera. To eliminate the unwanted and distracting spots in their photos, D600 owners have had to repeatedly send the camera to service technicians for cleaning at great inconvenience and cost.
Consumers have also alleged that Nikon resold D600 cameras returned to the company due to the dust issue as “refurbished” cameras, without actually remedying the defect. As a result, a new set of consumers were sold cameras that produce images with unwanted spots and require repeated sensor cleaning.

Legal Rights of Consumers
State and federal laws provide consumers with remedies for products that were defectively designed or manufactured or do not perform as advertised. This is true in many cases even after the warranty period has expired. The cost for a consumer to hire an attorney and file an individual lawsuit against the manufacturer of the defective product is often prohibitive.
The law, however, does not leave the consumer powerless. A small number of consumers may file a class action lawsuit, representing all consumers that purchased the defective product. A class action suit can provide a powerful and effective means for consumers to compel a corporation to acknowledge its legal responsibilities and provide just compensation to the class members.
