ZX Owners

Someone on APUG is giving away what seems to be new old stock battery grips.

Thanks for the heads up. Looks like they're both gone now.
These can be pricey on eBay but KEH sells them for $4-10.

I was digging through the clearance bin at a store a couple months back, and found one NIB for $2. So I got it, even though I rarely use my MZ-5n any more, and don't care for grips. But I also don't care for keeping spares of the little lithium batteries the MZs run on, so it may come in handy.

IMO adding the AA battery pack really improves the handling of these cameras.

I don't have a Z, I just saw the post & thought someone here might benefit.

I totally agree. My ZX-L is a little too short for my hands, and the Battery Pack FG really helps it feel right.

thanks!
I fethced one of those..... just being able to use rechargables justifies the S&H cost of the adaptor!
at 8Euro/battery every 4-6mos it gets quite pricey
