    D300 display cracked

    On my recent trip back from my holidays, I noticed upon opening my camera bag, that on the trip the display of my D300 broke. It's completely shattered and I am now wondering what to do. I did take out insurance for it.
    Does anyone know, if this problem can get fixed or is a new body necessary?

    Do you mean the rear screen or the top screen?

    If it is just the glass screen over the lcd on the rear it can be replaced ( actually i think it is even a user replaceable part ) and if the lcd itself is damaged that can be replaced by Nikon as well but at what cost I have no idea.

    Getting the camera checked thoroughly seems like a good idea, it must have been a pretty hard knock to break the glass as they are pretty hard.

    The LCD display itself is cracked, so it doesn't really show anything anymore (other than a few working pixels where the glass has not cracked). I even had the removable plastic cover on top but that wasn't enough this time.

    I dropped a lens on holidays in Europe last year, claimed on travel insurance and had it replaced (read - price refunded)

    Did the insurance company replace you the purchase price right away or did they first want to see proof that the lens was beyond repair?

    Sent it to Camera clinic for quote, and sent that on to the insurer.
    The fix price was twice as much as the price of a new lens - no wonder they paid up.
