Hähnel battery for D300?

Just wondering, in order to save money, whether the Hähnel equivalent of the EN-El4 battery would still give me the 8fps offered by the D300?

Thanks


Jack

Re: Hähnel battery for D300?

Dunno about that make of battery but I've been buying cheap batteries of ebay and have had no problems ( well not quite true I did get one completely dead one )

I pay about £8 for 3 batteries. I've used them in my 350D and had no probs, now have 2 spares for the 40D but not run a battery flat in that camera yet so can't comment

Re: Hähnel battery for D300?

Hehe. I'm not sure I'd go so far as to entrust my D300 to some cheapo eBay batteries (no offence to them), but it's good to hear that they (mostly) work. Thanks

Re: Hähnel battery for D300?

I've been running my 10D and 20D on 'cheap eBay batteries' since they were new. Not had a single problem and their capacity is quite a lot better than the original Canon ones.

Like C-Man I paid about £8-10 for 3 compared to the £54 that Canon want for one.

Re: Hähnel battery for D300?

Be careful the D300 and D3 are very fussy with third party batteries. They have sneaky tricks to detect non Nikon batteries. I have a third party En-EL4 and it worked fine my D2x but is a non starter in the D300 MB10 or D3 Other users have reported similar problems with third party EN-EL4s and 3s Incidentally most third party batteries are 2000mAh but the Nikon ones are 2500 but still a lot more than 25% more expensive.

Re: Hähnel battery for D300?

Thanks Vinny, that's interesting. Although, I'd be buying one from Hähnel, who are a reputable company (as you know), sold and even advertised with the cameras in many stores, online and real. They claim full compatibility, so surely they shouldn't not work?

Re: Hähnel battery for D300?

Just found a thread on another site where a guy says that his Hahnel batteries don't work with D300 others have reported that Photix and Delkin also won't work. One person suggests that the lenmar will work but I haven't heard of them.

Re: Hähnel battery for D300?

As a matter of interest how urgently do you want one and how much are they charging for the Hähnel? I have seen the Hahnel for £59 plus postage and it's only 2000mAh a 2500 mAh Nikon one can be yours from one of the reputable far east companies for about that.

Re: Hähnel battery for D300?

yeah I might just stick with the nikon ones to be sure, it's just the frigging charger that's so damned expensive. I really don't want to shell out £100 plus to charge a battery

Re: Hähnel battery for D300?

The camera itself runs on the En-El3e battery and comes with a charger for them. The optional grip will happily use the En-El3e batteries BUT can also use AA batteries OR the more powerful EN-EL4 from the D3 (and the outgoing D2 series) it doesn't come with this battery or a charger.

Re: Hähnel battery for D300?

So the En-EL4 is the same as the En-EL3 but more powerful and the charger supplied by Nikon with the D300 is unable to charge the more powerful version...is that right?

Re: Hähnel battery for D300?

Not exactly, it's a physically much bigger differently designed 2500 mAh 11.1V battery as used in the integrated vertical grip Nikon bodies. The En-EL-3 is 7.4V 1500 mAh that is the only battery size that will fit into the D300 (and D200) body.

Re: Hähnel battery for D300?

Also the EN-EL3e is supposed to share info with devices (I guess that is a fancy word for camera) to enable the battery state in six levels to be displayed plus other functions via the battery menu.

The EN-EL3 and 3a are not compatible, so presumably nor are the EN-EL3 and 3a equivalents. I expect the third party makes will be on top of this soon.

Re: Hähnel battery for D300?

Meh, well, you're still a Canon fanboy And I disagree and agree to some extent and another. I don't think everyone should buy the D300 because it's automatically gonna make their photos better. I am recommending it because it is a fantastic piece of kit that will make already good people's photos better because of the depth of quality in the images. My photography teacher (old film pro) commented on how my D300 prints look much more akin to old transparency film quality...this is what I'm talking about.

Re: Hähnel battery for D300?

Actually I am far from being a Fanboy, but I did buy into Canon when they were the best and because of my commitment to Canon fit lenses etc I have no intentions of changing. It would be far to costly.

That doesn't make me a Nikon hater or a Canon fanboy...even you, I am sure will agree

FANBOY <gggg>, but I can see it's an obvious choice to stick with a brand once you've started collecting lenses etc. (although apparently not if you're Dave !)
