    Hi Raph,

    No, the CFV will not charge a Sony Info-Lithium battery when the firewire is attached.

    The charger is available through the Hasselblad USA store.
    Battery charger for "L" type battery - Hasselblad USA Store

    I do not know where you are located. I searched a NY dealer online and there is a charger available.

    fantastic I found one in a store where I am, Montreal

    do you know how if the NP-F570 L is enough for one day shooting outdoor for the CFV or should I get a 770 L instead ?

    thanks!

    Raph,

    The NP-F570 L provides an average of 2 hours of shooting time and the NP-F770 L approx. 4 hours. I used the CFV and 503CW extensively when it was first released and always carried 2 NP-750 batteries (this model battery was current at the time).

    Great, can I find the charge level information in a sub menu?

    Thanks!

    Raph,

    There is a battery symbol that appears on the CFV display letting you that battery should be replaced.
    This information is in the 503/503CWD/CFV users manual version 10, refer to page 36.

    Exactly Paul, I get this warning, but not in the normal use like on my 5 D for instance... To get an idea of the time left with my battery. Maybe I should allways keep with me a spare battery

    Raph

    The cameras are different as is how they present the battery status. When you see the battery symbol appear on the CFV display it is time to replace the battery with your spare.
