    Hi Everyone

    I was wondering whether off the shelf Alkaline batteries could be used with
    the grip. The manual says to use rechargable, but off the shelf AA would be
    great in a tight spot. Years ago I remember rechargeble AA batteries were
    1.2 volts as opposed to non-rechargable at 1.5 volts. Is this the reason I
    shouldn't use them, or is there something else that would be detrimental to
    the camera?

    If anyone has tried with this grip I would love to hear from you.

    Thanks

    Tony
