I know that.  I have quite a few NiHM AA's that I use for other purposes.
The issue is that cameras without an optical viewfinder suck batteries
*even more* -- and that an LCD viewfinder is pretty much a waste anyway.

You know what I really want?  A Contax G with a good CCD in it.  It'd be
*so* easy for them to build, and it would kick ass on every other digital
camera out there... which is why they'll never do it. :-)

(if you can't find a picture of one on the web, the G/G2 are tiny little
 35mm rangefinder cameras with *interchangeable lenses* -- they're about
 twice the size of a Minox...)
