    Hi all, on a couple of occasion when holding my D700 down by my side it has fired off about 3 to 4 shots without my finger on the shutter release. Has anyone had a similar problem with their D700? It is less than 12 months old and well in its guarantee, fortunately I purchased it from Jessop’s so it has a genuine Nikon guarantee.

    Does it have a grip attached? If so, are you hitting the side shutter button by accident?

    Otherwise, unless you are hitting the shutter some other way (elbow, jacket etc) I think you have a problem.

    Mine does not do anything like that, Been using it for over 3 years now, It has been faultless in all that time...!

    I would definitely get it checked out by Nikon, Via Jessop's if you like, But whilst it is still in warranty, You would be wiser to go straight to Nikon ( Richmond ) as that's all Jessie's would do anyhow.

    Obviously you will pay the outgoing postage, But Nikon are very good in my experience, Doubt you will be charged anything for the return costs.

    Good luck with it, Generally this camera model is bullet proof....Wink

    Hi both thank you for your quick response. Yes it does have a battery grip and now you've mentioned it that could be what's happening. Its happened why I have it at arms reach down by my side. Thanks both, I'll check it out.

    Cheers

    Your battery grip should have a lock on the shutter release button. Worth rotating to "L" when you are not actually shooting in portrait.

    I had exactly that problem with a D300 with a Nikon grip attached and with a D3s with the integral grip. It gets even worse if you inadvertently leave the release mode on continuous!

    Brill thanks LeftForum, I'll put the "L" on. Looks like its human error (ME)

    Thanks All

    I have the same problem with my D3s; I leave the shutter button on the grip unlocked and the camera takes it's own images; I wish it would take some decent photographs. Grin
