    Hey Abram,

    I sent my EF to Ken Oikawa, who has no internet presence, but he is great and he charged me $95 for everything, including shipping. Apparently he was Canon trained. He has a strong Japanese accent so be prepared to listen carefully..

    Other than that, can you take the batteries to a Batteries Plus or something and have them check? Or you could take the plunge and buy a new pair, but honestly, I'd say the odds of a brand new pair of batteries being totally bupkis is slim.. unless there is some unusual circumstance regarding them.

    I had heard of Ken and ironically Sun City is maybe an hour from me. I hadn't asked for a quote from him though. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks for the tip!

    My pleasure, I wondered how close you were to Sun City, and I guess I should've just Googled it!

    The EF is a great camera; it's probably the most feature-filled Canon of its era, having a host of mechanical & electronic features. The old F-1 has a mechanical shutter, but doesn't have speeds from 2" to 30", and the F-1n has speeds to 8" and only minimal battery-less shutter function. In that respect, it's an incredibly versatile camera.
