Nikon

Despite being a dedicated follower of Canon Scott Louden thought us Nikonistas deserved something to cheer us up. While Canon ran a big lens day Nikon sent us this giant camera ably displayed by Gavin Dougan at Calumet, Edinburgh.

Ebay

Took a phone call at work yesterday and the conversation went like this:

"Hi, I have bought a Nikon D300 from a seller on Ebay."
"Yes," I was thinking he'll want to book it for a sensor clean,
"The seller told me it had 5,023 actuations but when I loaded a file onto Flickr.com, the data said the actuations were in fact 23,521," So what I was beginning to think.
"I wondered if you would act as an arbitrator as I'll have to send it back," said the caller.
I was speechless,
"Why would we want to be involved?" I asked him.
"Well I paid £620 for it and it's not right."
I replied:
"You are right about that, we have a used one on the shelf for £520 inc vat."
I then asked was he a customer of ours,
"No, but I thought you might help..........................."
