There have been numerous complaints about dust and dirt accumulation on the camera's sensor for Nikon's D800 and D600 cameras. I have personally heard owners of D800 cameras say they had them serviced and I have read one specific review of a repaired D800 saying that the Nikon service guys were just using duct tape to solve the dust issue with pictures of the camera after it had been serviced. Well now Nikon issued an advice for all affected camera owners to have their camera serviced mentioning specifically the D600 model. Here's the service advisory from Nikon's European Site.

I was very happy to be informed that another good friend of mine won the first prize with his impressive photo on PTTL. Nikos Ifantis is a photographer with a very good eye when it comes to taking a photo. With Nikos we are good internet friends and we met in person some years ago at a photo exhibition back in 2009 and later again in 2011. His unique perspective makes the images as if they were shot in a parallel universe, where you can't see what he sees even if you are looking at the same direction.

Shooting birds is not an easy task (and I don't mean just shooting them down with a rifle!). The birds can rarely stand still for a second and these few seconds are when the action starts for most photographers. Having the proper combination of equipment also helps to freeze motion a bit, maybe raise the ISO, lower the aperture and remove all filters from the lens. But have you ever wondered what really makes the shot?
