    When I feel like shooting purely mechanical, I use the FM2n without the MD-12.
    Motor Drive needs a lot of battery power in the old days before they get the efficiency of integral motor drive camera. New camera would have separate shutter charging motor, film advance motor and even separate rewind motor. The oldies has only 1 motor with a lot of gear train to accomplish the job thus needs lots of power.

    Sanyo Eneloops are very good. But, in extremely cold weather, Lithium batteries are the best. They will perform flawlessly in extreme conditions.
