Any camera using the small NP-FT1 battery has an extremely small flash with terrible indoor performance unless you're within 4-5 feet of the subject. I've tried the T1 and L1 with the same results.

I noticed the Sony NP-FT1 is 3.6volts and 680mAh. I just purchased a Maxell equivalent (dc3636) atCircuit City for $30. after rebate. It states 3.7 volts and 710mAh.

Besides longer batt life, will i getastronger flash?

A few other observations...

Video playback has a distinctive "whine". Not loud, but still noticeable. Probably would not be factor in louder environments. Also, I can hear a change in pitch while zooming. I've noticed this on other M1's as well, so apparently, it's the nature of this machine. Also, I don't care for the little door/cover to the connector. I don't think this is really necessary and looksvery flimsy to me.And, I'd like to see a direct a/v output on the camera itself. That docking station has to be with you every time youwant to output to a TV.

Update...looks like there is a cable available just for that purpose. Sonyhas several dedicated cables that are used for camera to computer USB and camera to TV. This enables using the M1 without the dock.

as I said in my above post.

the zoom sound is the mechanical noise.
