    Battery on Hassel Back

    Does anyone know why Hassel don't make a digital back that can hide the battery inside the back like P1?
    The CFV50c looks so classic and looks like a perfect match with V cameras, but the battery design really put me off...

    I have found that one of advantages of the Hassy 50CFV-50C battery setup is the ability to use oversize batteries. I use the Live View function extensively and have found that the stock battery is depleted rather quickly.

    I enjoy using waist level finder in the old days, so I guess I won't miss the power consuming live view function :-)

    I shoot the CFV-50C back on a view camera so waist level finder isnít an option. The Hassy back has no weather sealing so be careful in bad weather,

    Not nice, I agree. The stock battery is not too large, on the other hand. I got over it, finally, and it does not disturb me anymore.

    It does not really bother me and the batteries are dirt cheap, I have 5 of them.

    I also have 5 Sony batteries for the H5D50 back, and as far as I am concerned they are well positioned.
    I wonder what the external battery solution will be for the H6D100?
