Can anyone help me out?

Hey all,

I want to buy two of these batteries:

Unfortunately I live in the UK and for some reason they do not ship here.

Would anyone living in the US be willing to have them delivered to where they live and then send them off to me?

Of course I will pay for everything, and there will be a small gratuity of $10.

I figure the best way to go about this is use PayPal, so if you have an account I will simply send $52.40, which should cover two NP-F960 batteries and the shipping.

Then, when you receive them simply tell me how much shipping would cost to the UK and I will send that payment plus the $10 of thanks.

And before anyone shouts "use Sony batteries!", I will retort that Shannon bought these and approves of them, and clearly this gentlemen has used the Z1 enough to be able to be trusted!

My email is . Thank you all in advance. I am shooting quite a few things in the coming weeks (obviously this will take two or so weeks), so someone who could do this quickly for me would be ideal.

You deserve help just for the find Chris. That's a very good price. (I have tried but is only for US, I am in Canada) I hope some of the US colleagues will buy more than one and ship you your as well...

I can vouch for those batteries, as I own FOUR of them.

What's crazy is... I only need TWO because TWO lasts me all day long!! The DP seems to NEVER turn my camera off, and I find myself mosy'g on over to the camera and switching it off every now and then. *smile*

It seems these batteries charge up to capacity before they go down....basically it charges faster then I can use them, so if I kept one on the charger and used one, and the used one went dead, I can re-charge the dead one to FULL before the 2nd one goes dead. I could never do this with my XL1s batteries for some reason, so I was forced to get 3 for my XL1s'.

I bought four of these to be safe and I have permanently labeled them 1, 2, 3, & 4. But #3 & #4 never see the camera!! Each night, I recharge 1 & 2 for the next day, and they last all day, so 3 & 4 never come out the case.

NOW.... you need some in the UK..... Don't worry, I'll take care of you. You can call me at my office anytime (800) 97-BEOUT. Otherwise, just paypal me at paypal @ shannonrawls . com and I will place an order for 2 brand new ones for you, and when I receive them, I will verify they work on my Z1 and in my Z1 charger. Then I will email you and tell you how much the shipping is to whever you live from my address (Los Angeles, 90035) and then I will mail the 2 new batteries to you. Keep the $10 bucks, you're a DVINFO user, so you're OK with me! *smile*
