Irreparable Nikon D810 takes my second best photograph!

Broken Nikon takes one of my all time favorite images…

I got the following email from Nikon when I sent my D810 body in for repair. They told me they couldn’t fix my camera which has multiple issues after I took a fall. My camera hit rocks and was fully submerged in water.
It feels really good to know that despite its failures I got one of my all time favorite shots with the body.




(As a little follow up; my Nikon is still operating nearly two years later)

Dear Andrew,

I am emailing with regards to your Nikon D810 which is currently with us at the moment.
Upon inspection, we have found the unit to be beyond repair. The camera has received heavy impact to the top cover with the main body casting broken in two places, unfortunately, this part is not available as a spare part.
Please let us know if you would like us to estimate for a chargeable exchange, return your unit unrepaired or recycle the unit on site.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. If you do have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Kind Regards,

India Minns
