Agreed. Maybe my paranoia of proprietary batteries is moot. Most likely, by
the time the battery fails, I will upgrade the camera anyway. However, there
will eventually come a day that digital cameras are high quality (image and
durability), compact, flexible, and reasonably priced. When that day comes,
I'll likely buy my last camera. (I've had the same 35mm camera for 20 years,
and it still serves all my film needs.) I'll certainly want a
non-proprietary battery system for such a camera.

The BP-511 is about $40. If mine lasts me two years, I think I will have
gotten my money's worth out of it.
