There I was getting ready to go on a shoot when my Nikon D300 strap got snagged on something. The result was me losing my balance and tumbling to the ground. My heart raced as I lifted the camera, hoping inside it would be just fine.. But it wasn't! As you can see, the entire LCD shattered!! Thank goodness I have a backup for all of my equipment. Crisis averted!
After getting back from my photo shoot, I decided to inspect the camera in more detail. The display actually still worked and the camera functions just fine. It wasn't actually the LCD that cracked. Rather, it was a piece of glass built into the camera over the LCD.
I decided that I could do the repair myself. I found the parts on EBay It arrived today and was time for surgery. You can see the operating table to the right.
It took a little effort and about 20 minutes. In the end, the operation was successful. My camera is like new again! I love Nikons! They really are tough. See below for the after picture.
