Seeking: Batteries and Charger for SR2
Posted 17 August 2010 - 12:46 AM
And, just to be sure, am I right in assuming that the same batteries work for all three generations of the SR cameras?

SR3 batteries are completely different - 24V in a larger case with a 3 pin socket.
SR1 and SR2 batteries are the same, 12V with a coaxial socket.
You might have trouble sourcing an old Arri SR2 charger, I tried for a film school and had no luck, ended up just putting Arri plugs on a modern charger. Be warned though, the plugs (from Arri) cost more than the new charger did...
Also, you said you might be interested in an onboard adaptor - if you don't already have one you won't be able to use the onboard batteries. Apart from holding them in place it adapts the camera's 4 pin XLR power recepticle to the battery's coaxial socket. Sorry if you already knew this.
Good luck in your search..
