I'll tell you, Mark. opinions abound but after looking at the alternatives, I just put the 1.5v silvers into my Nikon F. I compared it to a new, trusted meter and changed the ISO on the F's meter to get the same readings. I guess that I should check it over the life of the batteries and adjust for voltage changes but you are right, brackets should cover any problems.

Not the most elegant solution available but it works fine and you can't beat the price.
