Servicing the Camera and Accessories
The camera is a precision device and requires regular servicing. Nikon recommends that the 
camera be inspected by the original retailer or a Nikon-authorized service representative 
once every one to two years, and that it be serviced once every three to five years (note that 
fees apply to these services). Frequent inspection and servicing are particularly 
recommended if the camera is used professionally. Any accessories regularly used with the 
camera, such as lenses or optional flash units, should be included when the camera is 
inspected or serviced.
A
Before Taking Important Pictures
Before taking pictures on important occasions (such as at weddings or before taking the 
camera on a trip), take a test shot to ensure that the camera is functioning normally. Nikon 
will not be held liable for damages or lost profits that may result from product malfunction.
