    If the recommended batteries are available, use them. You might have to get them from a large camera store or an electronics store.

    In some cases, such as equipment which required the [now no longer available in the US] mercury 1.35v cells, work-arounds are needed. I don't believe that this is true of lithium cells.

    They are CR2 batteries I believe, not CV2. Available almost everywhere, Esso petrol stations, Jessops if you're in the UK.

    I believe there is an AA adaptor type thing available which allows you to use re-chargeable normal batteries for that camera.
