    1.4v mercury battery sub?

    My friend recently inherited their grandfathers camera and it used mercury 1.4v batteries. Does anyone know what can be used as a substitute? The convertor is not the same voltage needed and I highly doubt mercury batteries are still made/sold. Thank you in advance!
