Exposed battery terminals short out
Karl Rabe, a photographer at the Poughkeepsie Journal, reminds that the Nikon EN-4's exposed terminals make the battery for the D1-series cameras susceptible to shorting out if not handled properly. A colleague of Rabe's at the paper recently discovered this the hard way when a small chain crossed the battery pack's terminals, "causing smoke to billow out of the bag and leaving a nice burn mark on the car seat that the bag was sitting on."

Building the Ultimate Photo Recovery Kit
The first time I lost photos to a camera storage card problem was in Rwanda in 1994. I'd just filled a Maxtor MobileMax 105MB PC Card with a series of photos of an orphan boy peering through a pane of broken glass. As I was anxious to shoot more before he was put off by my hulking NC 2000 digital SLR, I'd already slid the card out of the camera before I realized that I hadn't checked to see if the camera's card status light had stopped blinking first. It hadn't. Sure enough, the card wouldn't mount on the desktop of my Powerbook 180c, and those images, I assumed, were gone forever. I'd shot additional frames of the scene on another card, but none that measured up to the moments I lost.

Reed Hoffmann is a freelance digital photographer in Kansas City, KS and a founding member of Blue Pixel, a digital consulting group. Recently I was able to save a friend US$100 with a 9-volt battery and a little experimentation. The problem was that he had a Kodak DCS NiMH battery pack that wouldn't take a charge. A few seconds after being placed in a charger the yellow light would start flashing. That's bad news, because it means the charger thinks the battery is no good, and so won't charge it.
