battery: buy a couple extras... nothing worse than not having enough power to complete the shoot (except for tape!) i got Impact brand from BH.. also, dont buy the ebay ones... they died on me. the battery meter works with Impact brand. i got the huge 970s. if you can afford the cam.. you should be able to spring for a couple extra bats.

low light: what are you planning on shooting? i.e. weddings? the automatic gain option should be turned off, and if your going to be shooting in very low light, crank the manual gain to where you need it. bottom line, with out light, your image will be dark OR it will be grainy. I prefer the low light performance over my old pd170.

good luck
