Nikon D600 Dust/Oil Spot Issue

Nikon D600 Spot IssueConsumers who purchased Nikon's high-end digital SLR camera, the Nikon D600, are complaining about spots appearing in the upper left corner of their photographs. If you purchased this camera, you may have a legal claim. Contact us to learn about your rights.

Our investigation suggests that these spots may be caused by a defect in the Nikon D600 that, among other things, causes oil and dust to infiltrate the camera's sensor. Spot and blemish issues may not appear until after a consumer has taken at least several hundred photographs. While initially Nikon did not acknowledge the problem, by February 2013 it released a service notice to address the problem. In October 2013, Nikon released the new model D610 camera - perceived by many to be identical to the D600 but with the sensor issue resolved. Nikon has since discontinued the D600.

Case Update:

On February 19, 2014, after a lengthy investigation and speaking to numerous affected consumers, Zimmerman Reed filed a complaint on behalf of consumers who purchased the Nikon D600 camera. The complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. Read the complaint here.
