Which isn't the case here.
Having ordinary batteries in a camera is pretty usual, it's often even put forward as an option in case the recharchables are depleted. Loads of digitals even come with a set of alkalines to get you started..
Placing the camera in a docking station to download photos is pretty usual too. How should a technology illiterate user infer that combining these two completely harmless actions causes mayhem?
