Changing lenses/cards/batteries w Power ON?
6 months ago

All camera manufacturers recommend not changing lenses, cards or batteries with camera power ON. For lenses I imagine the possibility of electrical signals from the pins going to the wrong places, and with memory cards or battery changes one could lose data.

Despite the warnings, I suspect there are a few folks who at times have forgotten to power down, and I am wondering if any serious damage resulted?
