hello and welcome to steve's.

Don't worry about your camera! You can let the camera turned on as long as you want. the camera will not be damaged by that. I read about people who never turn the camera off and I also sometimes forget to turn it off. no problems at all.

Thom Hogan's in his "Complete Guide to the Nikon D70" (page 60) says that the D70 uses the same energy when it sleeps between shots (camera on) that when it is turned off. Hogan concludes: "it makes little sense to turn the camera OFF between shots (unless you're using a Microdrive...)".

You can let your camera ON all the time.

Best regards

let's see it in another way:

I personally turn my cam off, when I'm done taking pictures and put it back into my bag.

But your camera will not be damaged if you forget to turn it off.

Thanks crazydrummer for your valuable reply.You told that I can turn on my camera all the time,but there should be some limitations.I forgot to make it off and it was turned on for 12 days constantly.Is it ok?
