I’ve been writing about why I want a Nikon D200 camera, but now I’m not so sure. Nikon has posted the instruction manuals for download, and they’re kind of scary.
Viewing the sun or other strong light source through the viewfinder could cause permanent visual impairment.
Should you notice smoke or an unusual smell coming from the equipment or from the AC adapter (available separately), unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery immediately, taking care to avoid burns.
Placing the camera strap around the neck of an infant or child could result in strangulation.
The CD-ROMs on which the software and manuals are distributed should not be played back on audio CD equipment. Playing CD-ROMs on an audio CD player could cause hearing loss or damage the equipment.
When operating the diopter adjustment control with your eye to the viewfinder, be careful not to put your fingers or fingernails in your eye.
Clearly, these professional-quality cameras are trickier than I thought.
