    Second (third?) batteries for G3

    My G3 arrives (finally!) next week.

    What are you all using for backup batteries? If any?

    Are the batteries exactly the same as used in the GF2?

    The Panasonic site is woefully unhelpful in this regard...

    I see a couple of 3rd party options lurking out there for the G3. Has anyone tried these? (I have not with my other Panny cameras)

    Thanks,
    Doug

    Wasabi? Terry, do you know whether these batteries will show up on the camera's charge indicator?

    I see that B&H sells an aftermarket Panny battery that doesn't.

    Yeah it allows photography to utilize more of our senses than with traditional batteries.

    Stephen there are several threads at DPReview on this and it seems a bunch are working. I have the two battery set (non wasabi). They are charged but I haven't used them yet. I need to run to Fedex but will test when I get home.
