I'm in the same boat you are. I got one a few months ago and am still trying to do some search. A few websites are out that can supply you with batteries and cables, but they are aimed more at the scientific/industrial crowd so prices don't really favor cheapskates like myself. I'm going to experiment with bypassing the circuitry and having my electrical engineer friend hook me up a cable that will splice into the motor wires to see if I can get the camera to run off that. It could ruin everything, but I don't see why it wouldn't work (although I'm obviously no expert). From what I gather though, the best idea for viewfinder may just be getting an old 16mm lens with a dogleg viewfinder. I don't know, I can't seem to find anything either, but it still may be worth it if I can get this cable to work. Best of luck. PM me if you get any positive results.

Thanks for the replies Scott and Petin.

its good to know there are others out there with the same issues. I think going to have to do the same as you guys and hack the power cord with a connector of my own design. i still want to find a viewfinder due to information I have read on these forums concerning those dog legged lenses(losing light and being a little soft). Anyway good luck to you as well.
