I discovered that at least one of my cameras is producing significant EMF noise when in full operation. Whilst out railfanning, I often have a scanner operating, so I can have some clue as to when trains are coming. I was pretty annoyed that I was getting some phantom transmitter that seemed to have no people on it. At first I thought it was one of the railroad's radio devices like a hot box detector or something. But then I noticed that it only happened when I had the shutter release half-pressed - and only on my D100. I had the D100 and the D2x, and the D2x did NOT do the same thing. The D100, though, was producing enough EMF that it was catching the scanner's attention! Granted the scanner was in a belt pouch, so only two feet from the camera. I don't think the D3 does it either. But I'm still surprised that the D100 does it in the first place...

Probably not a big deal for most folks, but worth mentioning.
