Question about Canon ZR70MC Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have two canon zr70mc camcorders.On my first one,the tape door stopped working,so I found another one cheap that works great except the batteries drain within 10 minutes.Even the higher capacity battery.I did a test and put a fully charged(I think) battery in my broken cam and left on camera mode and after 30 minutes the battery stil had plenty of charge.It seems that the second camcorder has a battery drain problem.I've searched all over web and can't find similar problem.Can you shed some light on this situation for me.Thanks
I need a way to recharge my batteries but I can't find my charger? How and where can I find one?

If you have the idiot proof switch on, it makes everything AUTOMATIC and drains the batteries fast. Open the LCD door and check if the switch is in the wrong position and change it. Go into the menu and set thing s the way you want them. The more Auto stuff you have on, the faster the battery goes. Are you using a light? Even using the LCD uses more power than the viewfinder. Also, batteries do go bad. It's best to run them all the way down and recharge, if you haven't been doing that, short life. I buy my batts on ebay. Instead of one for $150 I get 10 three hour batteries for that.
