I recently bought a used D800 from a Nikon dealer and returned it after only a few weeks of using it. I am anxiously awaiting my brand new D800 as I am typing this.
One of the problems which I had with the used camera body was a constant "ERR" message which kept flashing. When the message would flash my image would be completely blown out. I was using two different batteries with the used unit, one was Nikon and the other was an off brand. Do you think that the off brand battery played a part in the Err message appearing? The message would appear regardless of which battery I had in the camera at the time and also regardless of which CF card I was using as well.
My question is do you guys use off brand batteries? and do you think that I will be alright using the off brand in my new body or should I stick with Nikon OEM?
