Nikon has issued a service advisory for owners of its D750 regarding a shutter issue that can sometimes leave a portion of an image underexposed. The issue, which causes the shutter to ‘not function properly’, is said to affect D750 models made in the months of October and November of 2014.

This marks the second service advisory for the D750, the first of which also caused images to be underexposed in certain situations. Specifically, the first issue caused banding when shooting into a bright source of light, as we reported on thoroughly earlier this year.

Thankfully, this issue doesn’t appear to affect as many cameras. To check if your camera is one of the affected models, Nikon has set up a website to compare your seven digit serial number to the list of affected cameras.

If your camera is an affected model, Nikon says to return it to your nearest Nikon service center, where it will be fixed free of charge, even if your camera isn’t under warranty.
