We still haven’t bought a new camera or replaced the battery. For now, I’m just making sure to charge the battery right before we use it. I’ve identified a replacement battery relatively cheaply from an online vendor. Unfortunately, they are out of stock. It’s inexpensive enough that it’s worth buying whenever its becomes available, even if we are planning to get new camera “soon”. Surprisingly, the failing battery lasted for our entire photo session even though we were filming a movie. We hope you enjoy our good fortune.
