    Exclamation Nikon EN-EL3 recall

    This is for those using the Nikon EN-EL3 batteries (for D100, D70, D70s and D50). They are recalling some of these batteries due to safety reasons.

    Please check your batteries against the list of production numbers on Nikon's website.

    Guys,

    Hold your horses!

    Those silly people put up the notice on the web site and they don't even have the stock to replace the batteries yet.

    Went there this morning and was told to come back this Friday, 11th Nov. They said the should have it by then. But knowing them i suggest you call them first before going. Otherwise it wasting petrol.

    You all know their service level.

    next TT session, all nikon users sit on the opposite side of the table ya? moderators have bomb squad numbers handy just in case. others, prepare to inform patrons on a possible evacuation should an explosion take place. meanwhile, i will speak to the media when they arrive... will assure them that it's not a terrorist attack.

    Better yet, Nikon users just bring the body without battery.



    Please bring your limb tho...

    Re: Nikon EN-EL3 recall

    Just curious...

    Those affected (nombor naik), have you ever feel warm or access heat when using/holding your DSLR?

    I was just thinking along the same lines. Perhaps since they will not have the EN-EL3 and replace with the newer EN-EL3a.

    Most of the time, I'm too engrossed shooting. The last time I remembered I got over 1600 shots at one go during the Ms Fujifilm Photogenic and the battery still showed full bar.

    Re: Nikon EN-EL3 recall

    mine came up as well..
    but frankly, the only thing thats not misbehaving on my cam is the battery. works a treat.. how ironic is that?

    its never heated up or felt overly warm on prolong use so far.

    so, now once this goes publec and its all blown out of proprotion, i should be able to walk into any bank, point my cam at them threaten to shoot if they do not give in to my demands.
    strapping a few on a chest harness would add to the effect too.
    gives "shoot" a whole new meaning.
    heh heh..

    regards,
    asmd.
