Here dies artborghi’s Nikon D800 killed by weather, humidity and oxidation

miss nikon is dead

After 52,842 shots and less than 3 years, artborghi’s much beloved Nikon D800 gave its last click.

Condensation/water infiltration in the camera body caused irrecoverable oxidation, as stated by Nikon repair service. Such sudden death, despite its weather-resistant life above the sea level, its companion the rain-proof backpack and the loving care of its owner.

In its short life, artborghi’s Nikon D800 was inspirational to 250 blog posts on artborghi.com, photo calendars, news articles, photo books (in preparation), a photo exhibition , scientific talks, weddings, portrait shootings and more.

It leaves behind 2.3 TB of .NEF and .JPG files, plus a plethora of unforgettable memories and happy moments.
