Back in December my old camera started giving me the shutter release error. The manual said to consult Nikon.I did a web search and found others who had solved the problem with a little lubrication of the red gear in the bottom of the camera. That worked for a few days the problem returned. It seems fixing Nikon cameras is not a quick process, so I found new camera body, the D3100. It has a larger sensor and more features. The reflection is in our mirror that is made of vertical sections. Second image was flipped in PhotosShop. I plan to get the D40X repaired and use it as a backup.
