Hi,

Can anyone tell me if there is a modern replacement for the two 1.3v exposure batteries in the canon 814 or do i have to use light meter ?

Thanks

This $29.00 MR-9 adapter from C.R.I.S. camera reduces the voltage of common silver-oxide 1.5v 386 batteries to 1.3v.

I've been using these in my Nizo 560 and Gossen Luna-pro for over a year now.

I've always had bad luck with wein cells- they seem to die fast. Probably because they sit around waiting to be sold for too long.

in this thread santo recommends using 675 hearing aid batteries. although he says they're 1.2v, i've only seen them listed as 1.4v.

what would the effect be of using a 1.4v battery instead of 1.3?
