Hi Ptb Stalker,

You can always contact Panasonic or Mizco to confirm batt is compatible with the FZ20. I believe that it is.

Good luck

Thanx 4 the reply Digicam! I thought you had a FZ20 with the DPS9000. I`ll check with Mizco first.One of thegreat things about digital is you can take lots & lots & lotsof pics and not have to reload film and with a big battery you can just keep shooting away all day! Can`t wait to get my paws on that camera!

DPS9000 works fine with my FZ10 so it should work with the FZ20, also.

I just purchased a FZ20 and will be buying a DPS9000 to go with it. Ritz has it for $39.95. That seems to be a great price. The added wieght is no problem if you have used a film SLR. The FZ20 is so much lighter to start with. Hope this helps.

The DPS 9000 is, I believe, about 1850 MAH. I reckon it provides about30 percent more power than the equivalent of four double A 2500 mah NimH recharbeble batteries (and that's a very conservative estimate, and soley subjective on my part).

The DSP 9000 is a lithium battery which means it can hold it's charge, supposedly, for up to a year, whereas a NimH's lose their power pretty quick, in about a month.

All told, the DPS 9000 is a cool option. However, the best option is buying a camera that already has a built in lithium battery, and using the DPS 9000 as a backup.
