The pictures I posted are nowhere near what Fromeco may produce; they're simply my quick-n-dirty proof of concept. Even at 2400mAh, what Fromeco currently stocks, that's still higher capacity than both Futaba and Sony. And if you go with a bit less-technical battery, the Relions will fit just as well at a much lower price. Add $10-15 for the one-time interface board (my guess), and you've got a real, useful alternative with improved functionality over Sony. When you consider that this will work on the 14MZ and 12Z, plus can be easily reworked to go in the FX-40 (for those that own one), you have a winning product that a lot of folks would consider over Sony's camcorder battery.
