I bought a D5100 two weeks ago. Today I rode my Harley to the Daytona Speedway to take pictures of bikes and race bike. When I turned the D5100 on I received this error message: Press shutter release button again
Later in the day I called Nikon 24 hour support number. The lady told me to return the camera and have it serviced. I'm disappointed but electronics fail from time to time.
I read on some threads that the D40 had shutter issues. I was wandering if other D5100 users have had this problem?
Now I'm thinking perhaps I should not just exchange it but get a D7000 instead. Most likely I'll let them exchange the camera but there are some things about the D7000 I like and if I was going to make the switch now is the time to do it.
