Rechargeable batteries for MZ-S with BG-10?

Hello,


As far as I know all rechargeable AA batteries are 1.2V.
The BG-10 calls for 1.5V.
What are you guys using in your BG-10?

Cheers,

Luc

because of lower voltage, using normal ni-mh rechargeable batteries results in slower performance of the camera. first of all you realize it at the shutter with a less prompt response to actuation. and then autofocus and so on..evrything's slower.

never used eneloops, probably better but maybe still not as good as 1,5 volts alkalines.

From my experience with MZ-L and MZ-7, the alkalines lasts a ridiculously long time, unlike on dslrs. So I think there's not much reason other than environmental not to use alkalines on film bodies.

we use film which is bad to the environment anyways ... few more batteries won't make it much worse

Thanks guys.
I agree with the environment issue but on the other hand missing shots will contribute to wasted film

Cheers,

Hmmm... stupid me. I've always used rechargeables and was very pleased with MZ-S speed. So it could be even better.... LOL
