question

Can i use the alkaline batteries with EN-EL15 in the camera?
Asked by: Anonymous
There are 3 choices for batteries in the MB-D17 grip:1. EN-EL15 or 15a with MS-D12EN holder (supplied)2. AA (alkaline, NiMH, or Lithium) with MS-D12 holder (supplied)3. EN-EL18, 18a or 18b (no holder required) with BL-5 end cap (not supplied)I hear that you can get quite a few more shots with the '18' batteries, but they are expensive, and the charger is insanely expensive! :-(

Because they can... it appears to be a ripoff, but I'm not sure I would want to try a third party item such as that. I imagine the research into that item is extensive, unlike the body. It does fit well, but ...
