It doesn't appear that you can use CR-V3's with the A520, which is a pity.

You can use lithium AA's which will last longer than alkaline (not recommended) or NiMH batteries. Lithiums will also work much better in cold weather, but they are much more expensive than alkalines. I would recommend getting a set of four NiMH rechargeables, and you should be able to shoot almost all day long with these.

Look out for the Sanyo Eneloop NiMh AA cells when they arrive. These have a very low self discharge rate (like lithium rechargables) but have a higher energy density.

Aparently, only in Japan. Here in the UK I've read they won't be available 'til March.
