Anyone know if there is a solution? I bought LR44 batteries I saw recommended somewhere but that must have been for the QLIII. The battery is tiny in the big deep hole which is completely different to the one on the GIII and packing with foil didnt work. It seems like all discussion is regarding the GIII. I am not a fan of the camera ergonomics so its not the end of the world if there is no battery, or Sunny 16 may turn out good enough.
