Nikon Says Watch Out for Fake D800E DSLRs

By Gary Cutlack on at

Nikon seems to have uncovered fake versions of its supremely expensive D800 SLR series, warning users to check the onboard image display screen to see if they're lugging a genuine model about or not.

The camera maker's EU support site says owners should check to see if the corner of the playback screen says "NIKON D800E" on it -- if not, it may be a fake model. You'd think one of the easiest bits about faking an entire camera would be putting the model number on the screen of the thing. [Nikon via PetaPixel]
