HLD-4 and AA Cells.

I tried out my HLD-4 grip on my E3, with a set of AA Panasonic 'Digital Xtreme Power' cells. They lasted about a dozen shots before the shutter 'locked' (the lens still focussed, though). I've got firmware 1.4 on the camera.

This is a pretty poor performance, and as these cells are about the highest specification AAs available, is this as good as we can expect?

Has _anyone_ had a useful performance with AAs in the HLD-4?

Jim
