Battery charger

What kind of charger are you guys using. I find the AC-V700A (AC-V700A (ACV700A) : Zubehör & Kopfhörer : Sony) a bit pricy for charger ...

Thanks for any hint

Regards
Peter

My Z5 came with this charger:

Sony : AC-VQ1050B (ACVQ1050B) : Technical Specifications : United Kingdom

so there is no need to buy any other one.

And, of course, has the added advantage of being an AC adapter for the camera.

The only disadvantage I can see Steve, is that when you are using the AC-VQ1050 AC adapter to power the Z5 you need to remove the battery from the Z5 and use the mock-up battery unit connected to the AC adapter, so when there is a power failure you are in trouble.

Good point Stelios. Although the same would apply if the battery went flat, requiring a battery change - although you do have somewhat more control over that. I only really tend to use the AC supply when capturing - at which point it wouldn't make any difference if the power supply failed, as the PC would also lose power in any case.

I was more refering to the FX1000 as it does not come with a separate charger and I really don't liek to use the camera as a charger ...

From "earlier times" I still own a Sony BC-V615, which I bought for my VX2000E. Maybe these can be found used on the net for a lower price.
