What battery does the Canon EF take?

  1. Looking at buying a Canon EF and I fear that it takes the now outlawed PX-625 (or other) mercury cell. Please clarify...thanks.

    Also, is there a spec sheet for this camera on the web somewhere?

    Appreciate all help and direction.

    Cheers,

  2. Go to www.canon.com and look for a link to the Canon Camera Museum. It has pictures and general specs, inculding power source, for just about every camera they ever made.
     
  3. Hi Michael,

    yes, the EF uses two PX625 batteries, but due to its more advanced
    electronics the camera does not need mercury cells and their constant
    output voltage. You can use standard alkaline batteries (e.g. Varta
    V625U) without any problem. These batteries are worldwide available
    without any problem or legal restrictions.
