Naah, you're mostly claiming and whining Nikon cameras break all
the time when used "normally". (Note that I'm a Canon guy.)

But I have an idea for your cameras:

Won't help too much against dropping on sharp rocks, though.

With NiMH that would work, it'd only take 16 or more hours.
Do you think it could work with LiIon? Did the charge cycle
take more than 10 hours?

Both versions require me, using Agent, to remove the >s four times.
Only the first line is highlighted in color with the underline
indicating a clickable link.


They are identical on my screen.

Clickable and intact in both versions using Forte Agent. No
difference between them to me.

I use Forte Agent Version 1.93 (copyrighted 1995-2005 according to the
splash) I haven't upgraded to later versions because I see no
improvement for my use in the later versions, and like the way 1.93
works)

As far as I can tell, none of the diagrams on that page will be
helpful in replacing the part that Arklin is replacing. The schematic
he wants (and I want) shows how the bayonet mount ring piece is
attached/removed/added to the lens. Strangely, for a search on Nikon
lens parts, many of the diagrams are for Olympus lenses. There may be
a reason for that that I don't know. It's not my bag.

While we are on the subject of newsgroup postings, how about you -
Eric - adding a sig line delimiter so your "Regards, Eric Stevens" is
stripped when replying. What is it? Two dashes followed by a white
space character on a single line?

You snipped my addition about the need for a market for the version.
If there's a market for the product, that solves the economic reason.

if it's trickle charging, it's not doing a 'full charge cycle'. a lot
of chargers drop to trickle charge when the battery is fully charged
(which requires sensing its charge) to maintain a full charge.

that may be what confused dpreview in thinking it's doing a full cycle
when it was just doing a trickle charge.

it definitely is not doing a full charge cycle. there is no question
about it.

Now, work on that delimiter that strips your sig lines.
