Have you seen the film "Chasing Ice"? Award-winning documentary which chronicles the disappearing glaciers using 27 time-lapsing D200s placed around the world. Another testament to the durability of the D200.

Incredible. I think that's over 3x the official life expectancy for the D200's shutter. Besides the temperature range, has the camera also been exposed to rain/snow up there on the roof?

I wish Nikon was building the D200's quality and durability into their new cameras; I'll just stick with my own D200 (and D50) until they do.

the camera is below a pane of glass, so no rain or snow but hot and cold through the opening and direct sunlight...

Hopefully these pictures will at some point be useful for meteorological analysis (the Mont-Blanc is 50 km away and the number of days where you can clearly see it seems to go down each year...)
