    I've had my D50 for close to two years now, and recently I've been running into a problem. I attended a car show recently where I took about 600 pictures in maybe 3 hours, and every hundred pictures or so, my shutter would stick open. It would stay that way until I press the button to take the picture again. That was last week, and today I took another 500 or so pictures at a race and it was doing the same thing.

    Is this something that can be fixed by having the camera cleaned up professionally, or should I start looking at a new body? Right now it doesn't matter much to me, but if I start shooting real events where that one lost picture can make a difference, I'm not going to be happy.

    How many shots has your camera taken?

    From what I've read, you should have your camera cleaned by a professional, or clean it yourself if you're familiar, about once a year. Good hygiene isn't just for your person :)

    I'm gonna guess around 25,000.


    This is probably my problem. In the whole time I've had it, I've never cleaned it. I feel so ashamed!
