Re: Alternative battery
I believe the dps-9000 will work, as an external battery.
the 30 will need lots of power, I bet. and it might be some time before the generic internal batts are available for this new camera.
the manual shows that the 30 has a power connector that _looks_ like the other fz's. if so, then it should just plug in and work. I know the voltage is the same.

NI-MH batteries a re very different than car batteries and even tho voltage may be similar, you risk destroying your battery, camera or worse, an explosion. Your batter may only need a limited amount of amperage to charge (likely not much more than 1500ma or 1.5 amp) a car battery charger may put out twice or even ten times that much - hence the explosion risk! Also these kind of chargers detect when your battery is full and will quit charging or switch to a maintenance mode. I'm afraid you're pretty much stuck with using the charger meant for it.
you cannot use any charger that is not used to charge ni-mh batteries car batteries charge at a rate of 5 amps minimum and if you do it will cause serious damage to the charger and batteries
if you want ideas , talk to a battery shop but unless it is designed to charge 14.4 volt ni-mh batteries-- forget it
Your out of luck. This method of charging is considered (nowadays) unprofessional. Thats why you rarely see manufactures such as Canon/Sony/Nikon (the big 3) use this - and company's like Kodak will. Yes, it is convenient, BUT, battery chargers are prone to go out. They work very hard, and get very hot, adding stress to other components. There is no such thing as a bullet proof charger. Many (quality) manufactures know this and avoid this added hassle. See, if the charger goes out then it's likely to disable the rest of the camera and it's not worth the risk.
Hi, I have the same problem with my FZ30. The camera just doesnt turn on. Even the battery when put in the charger, the light of the charger goes of in few minutes or few seconds without properly charging it. Can it be a fault of the battery or the camera itself?
