OK, I got it from Dell for $585

Anyone know what model (canon) battery is the biggest one I can get, and where to buy it. I want eh name brand since the cheap ones can really suck

- The BP-2L14 is the highest capacity battery.

Thanks Michael,

I guess it is safe to assume then that the batteries that fit the Optura 200MC will not fit the 60.... Figures :|


Thanks for the help, I will post a review when I get enough time using it.


I appreiciate the honest and helpful answer.
:)

Sorry, the Optura 200MC of yesteryear uses the old Canon BP-5xx series battery, which has a larger footprint and is therefore not at all compatible with the current Optura camcorders such as the Op 50 and 60.
