Flimsy battery holders

Hi. I'm been using the DVX and have found the battery 'holders' in the compartment to be rather flimsy. Made of plastic, they break off. Is the construction of the plastic tabs for the 150 similarly constructed and has anyone experienced them being broken?

This is a common problem with the Panasonic prosumer cameras. To stop this from happening, NEVER store or ship your camera with the battery in place. ALWAYS take the battery off when putting the camera away.
