Excellent advice.  This was the first thing I did after I opened the 
packaging of my new R8 a few weeks back, drive to the photo shop and buy a 
extra set of batteries.  I am also buying several sets for both my M6TTL 
and R8 for the upcoming trip to Germany and Poland in December.  I keep at 
least one extra set of batteries for each camera I take on a trip or if I 
am just out with the camera.  you just never know when one will give out.

Good sir the lesson here has nothing to do with film test, exposure 
nor quality of picture. But everything to do with a battery operated 

Whether one leaves home and hearth or not, but shoots pictures anywhere, 
should always have...... You guesed it............:-)


We have double sets of batteries for al M6-7's and R8's. Quite frankly 
the first thing one buys as soon as the camera is purchased.... extra 

And wonder of wonders you'd not be posting an under exposed photograph 
could well have been an interesting shot of the young lad. ;-)
