Hello D4 users. I purchased a D4 about 90 days ago. Three weeks ago I noticed a sudden loss of battery power. The first time I just thought had not charged the battery recently and it was dead.
The second time I had just taken the battery off the charger an hour before useing it. After about 40 frame being shot I noticed the battery icon on the last bar. This raised a red flag as to battery problems.
The last time (last night) it happened again after 20 shots dead !!!!! Needless to say I was HOT! But fortunately I brought my old friend the D3along who finished up the shoot for me.
Now I only have one battery and one D4 body so I can not swap around batteries to see if it is the battery or god forbid the body.
I was on Nikons sight and it stated that Batteries were not covered under the warranty!!!! Yep Hot again!!! I fired off a customer service email but probably will not get a reply for 24 hours !
Has any D4 battery issues come to any one attention? Or worse yet electrical problems with the D4 body that would be pulling excessive current?
Hope some one can calm me down!
Thanks as always to the Nikonians Bob Barnes Van Wert, Ohio
