During my last trip the vibrations caused my Minolta7000 to generate some problems. Mainly this caused bad lighting on the picture. (You're in the middle of the desert, and your pictures get underexposed. That sort of stuff). This was caused by the vibration damage and (subsequent) corrosion on the batteries and the spring-contacts to thr batteries and camera. After increasing the tension of the springs and cleaning them thourougly the problem disappeared.
My main question is how to keep this damage from happening?
Ik kept the camera in a soft LowePro carrying bag inside my tankbag.
The best planning is to go!
