My fabulous camera repair man, Matt Fuehrer, started a petition the other day.
Nikon Camera refuses to sell camera parts to anyone except 23 Nikon authorized repair facilities. Neither will it sell parts directly to consumers, claiming that the technology is too complex for anyone to understand except the authorized dealers.
Matt counters that few repairs are that difficult.
Read his petition here and sign it, like I just did.
Here's the article I wrote about Matt for Patch.com.
