                            Just thought I'd mention that I haven't had any luck with standard alkaline AAs (even with the battery indicator showing full the shutter would not fire), nor NiMH rechargeables (battery flat indicated immediately). I understand this follows the experiences of several others. I'll query it with Olympus in the new year.

                            I'll get a set of Lithium AAs in due course to try those.

                              Re: HLD-4 powergrip Recieved!!don't give up hope!!

                              Hi all,
                              Just to let you all know that I recieved my free grip today,from Oly in Germany.
                              Very pleased with it to seem's to work fine with my two BLM1 Batts,not tried
                              any NMH,or Allkalines,Don't think I ever will though.

                              Main reason for telling everyone is to state that I emailed my reciept from
                              Park camera's, on the 12/12/07 it even had the wrong serial number on it by one number,but I never mentioned it in the email & still Oly came up with the good's!!.
                              Fifteen days Including weekends & Xmas as well, I think that's pretty good going by any standards.

                              So those who still haven't recieved there's don't give up hope yet.
                              All the best
                              Patrick

                                LOL

                                Just got back from the Xmas break, alas no card left from DHL for non-delivery, either Oly has super-powers or I misssed the first shipment of the grip. Anybody had a delivery in the last few days?

                                I guess with the holiday break I missed the shipment and will have to wait until the new year now.
