At least in the US they can't totally void the warranty for something like that. If the electronics inside died, sure, they could. If a defective button falls off the back of the camera or something though there's no way they could blame that on a battery (well, maybe i'm giving them too much common sense there).
Right. That's the Magnusson-Moss Act. IIRC the long and the short of it is that Nikon can't deny a warranty claim for using an unauthorized part unless the part directly caused the failure. That hasn't stopped Nikon from jerking people around of course. My money is on Nikon claiming "impact damage" if a third party battery damages the camera.
Nikon: Iím asking for a lot here, Santa, but Ďtis the season to help those in need.
First, if you could fit a quality control department in the sleigh that would be lovely.
Also, could you bring Nikon USA a reasonable Factory Service Center, too? If thatís not possible, then Iíll go ahead and ask you to bring them some customers in 2014 or so, because theyíll be needing new customers about then.
And Santa, if youíre feeling really generous, then maybe you could give Nikon the secret of electronic aperture control? Mechanical levers are sooooo 1960. Itís not like leaving out aperture control motor is making the lenses less expensive.
