While shooting in Aperture Priority Mode an image came up as a blank white screen with a small file size, roughly 120K as opposed to the 3 MB I am accustomed to at Large/Fine (The EXIF shows that the image in question was captured in Manual Mode at F8-1/60). The camera has about 2700 shutter actuations if that makes any difference. I called Nikon Tech and they said they had never seen this happen before but offered to have me send it in for an inspection. The images before and after were fine but that one is just blank, like the sensor never captured anything. I am concerned that it might do this again at the wrong time. I am tempted to return it to Costco and order a new D80 from Amazon.Com but another part of me says the D50 is all I need and let's wait and see if it goofs up again. Please share your thoughts and experience.
