Today, I called up contax usa and was able to order battery clip for the contax digital camera!! at the cost of 58usd. i ordered three additional ones. so now i can go on the field without worries and weight problem and no cables either. i have also notices when the lcd review is turned off, i get a lot more shots (i mean a lot more shots). also if u use a slowe rate charger, the batteries seem to last longer. this was also reported by Kaisern.
