Was absolutely amazed today! I decided to look over my cameras today, first time in a year and a half. I found all of my batteries needed recharging, except one, the battery in my Leica M8 was still fully charged! Says something for Leica quality.

Are your cameras display only, or are you actually using them sometimes?

For a minute, from reading your title, I thought this post was going to be about baseball players. Glad the M8 was still charged.

Baseball? I thought he was baking a cake!

You are lucky they didn't leak and destroy your stuff.
I take my batteries out even its just for overnight.
Camera's, flash units, anything that has a battery.


I never had a problem keeping batteries in my cameras, these are all hi end Nicad batteries used in my Nikons, Kodak and Leicas each costing over $100 and have never had a leak or failure.

Don't blame your spell checker. You spelled "batter" correctly. It doesn't know that you used the wrong word.


I wonder "y"

My cameras are my love and the only thing keeping me from using them daily is a fall down a flight of stairs that just about crippled me. I took them all out the other day and cleaned them all and recharged all the batteries. For the past day or so have been playing with them. A big problem is both hands pins and needles not much feeling.

Well actually it says something about the battery quality. Or maybe you forgot that you charged it a couple of days ago.
