:?: what was that all about? I was asking about the new external pack. Well I called them and they said it does not have to be a fully charged EN-4, but the camera has to recognize that a battery is there. fully charged or not. But, hey, what's the difference. All externals need to recognize a battery, or so I'm told. I think the real fact of the matter is that this external pack is about the size of a cigarette pack, and weighs about 1/4 pound.
All this and 3000+ shots, wow.
