Rated battery life of the MKE300 is about 200 hours with LR44 battery per the specification sheet.

This appears to be a USA product because it is not on the German Sennheiser web page. Note that it has a rapid low frequency roll off starting around 200 Hz.

The LR44 is an alkaline battery. The MS76 (PX76 different numbers, but same battery from different mfg.) is a silver battery and usually lasts longer. A 357 (exact same battery as MS76) battery is also silver and is used in hearing aids. These can be found for much less money than what camera stores sell the 76 for.

It just means that the MKE300 isn't terribly good at recording low frequency sounds. Most of the time, this is a good thing since it helps reduce low frequency rumbles (AC units, trucks passing outside, etc.) on your audio track. On the otherhand, if you want decent recordings of something with a lot of low frequency info in it, you may need to find another microphone to record it with.
Hope that helps.

buying batteries

I'm going to buy another extra battery for my XL1-s. Do most of you buy only Canon batteries or will you buy a off brand? Where do you buy them from? Thanks for the help

Try this string. A number of people are using the Lenmar battery with good results.

I bought off brands off Ebay. I'm happy with the price and results.

Can you tell me which off brand you bought at ebay? Ebay Germany has also 945 type batteries for sale.

Not sure. They just say "Fits Canon" on them. I threw out the boxes so I can't check. I don't remember a name off them.

Yes, Aaron. I have several Power 2000 batteries. Their specs and actual performance make them the best available BP-945 - class batteries in my experience.

Ok, revisiting this thread. I'm want to buy the Power-2000 battery, just wanted to know if it is charegable with the default Xm2 battery charger?

Cheers

Ok, this may sound silly...but are the attachments for the batteries like the power-2000 and BP-945 identical from say an XM2 to a GL2? Will either battery fit on either spec camera? It would be idiotic to have them different, but you know how product design works sometimes and I want to make sure before I order from the U.S.

Cheers
