My D200 is almost one year old. About 6 months ago the rubber bottom fell off (when I was using a monopod). I also noticed the battery latch would not close as securely as it used to. Twice in the past year I lost a couple of photos when I didn't securely close the battery latch. I sent the camera into Nikon for warranty repair and I just received a $300 estimate. They claim water damage - but I have never never never had my camera get wet in anyway. On Monday I will call Nikon but how can they claim water damage when I know this is not true. Could it be the humidity in Hawaii? Could damage come from standing at the beach taking surf photos? Is there any chance they will reconsider? Any ideas on how to proceed? Thanks.
