Has anyone found a 3rd party battery for the EX-1. Sony's is too pricey.

The only other battery company I would trust is something from Anton Bauer. I'll be comparing prices later today to determine if:

1. Buying the Anton Bauer QR EX3 Gold mount and two (2) Dionic 90 batteries is smarter than:

2. Buying three (3) Sony BP-U60 batteries.

The Anton Bauer Dionic 90's are good for around 6 or so hours (I think). I'll also ask my broadcast supplier about alternate battery recommendations as well.

Basically I believe the EX uses the "pro" 14.4V as opposed to "prosumer" 7.2V.
Anton Bauer, as Don points, out has made a system for the EX.

Basically though, if a company came out with 14.4 adaptor for EX it should work with many 14.4 battery systems.

At least this is how I understand it although I haven't delved deep enough in to this to insure all the above is correct.

Swit do battery for the EX1/3 14.4v with a D tap. They work well and cost a 3rd less than the Sony equivalent.

Don't know anything about these guys, but they carry pro battery mounts for EX cams.

Depending on who you talk to the Anton Bauer QR-EX3 mount and one Dionic 90 battery plus charger comes in between $1500.00 and $1700.00 CDN funds. Even though the Anton Bauer solution is probably the best I went with 3 BP-U60 batteries instead because of price.

Thanks everyone for your input. I have a battery belt, but I hate it. I'm mostly a run and gun shooter that has to be mobile; glidecam, remote locations, rice fields, weddings, etc. I prefer the snap on batteries purely for convenience and comfort. I just did a 10 hour shoot last weekend, so the added weight of a belt just wears me out.....I guess I'm getting older.
