Batteries and Chargers...very important stuff!

Read all about batteries and chargers.

In his article and extensive reviews, Dave Etchells of the The Imaging Resource states the importance of batteries as follows:

"Apart from the camera itself (and a sufficiently large memory card), batteries are probably the most critical element in your entire digicam equipment kit."

Read his reviews and test results entitled:

The Great Battery Shootout!
by Dave Etchells
on The Imaging Resource Pages
Dave did extensive testing on both the latest batteries and on some battery chargers.  (Note, my batteries were not in his extensive list of batteries tested...yet)
