Eastgear is selling the compatible one for $29.90. I am using one, can not tell the difference between original and the compatible.

360 sounds like the price of a battery pack rather than a battery. sounds just like the MB-D100... haha

the original en el3 costs about 80ish

So sorry guys. My apologies. I typed in the wrong item. I'm looking to buy so many things at one time that I got mixed up.

$360 is for Sandisk Ultra II. Do u know how much that is elsewhere?

As for the battery, I haven't enquired yet.

I'm also looking for X Drive pro (what is the new one?) I've enquired at a shop but they didn't have it. The said that there's a new model coming out. So no stock for them yet. they're still waiting for the new model to come out.

Once again, sorry for the mix up.

...priced around $90 + . Got mine from Harvey Norman for $95 during the early months of the D70 launch. Works beautifully - around 500 ¬ 600 shots!

Hope it helps.

Peninsular Plaza, 2nd floor. If you don't know where that is, it is near city hall mrt station, along the way to funan, a building with a DBS ATM lobby and old chang kee.

Piece of advise...

Nikon warns against 3rd party battery to be used on their equipment. So if your camera do happen to 'short' due to the introduction of 3rd party batteries, you'd lose your warranty. :nono:

If you can afford, it is always good to use original Nikon EN-EL3. Besides, the original EN-EL3 can last longer on a single full charge also.

My advise is simple, since you've already paid $2k+ on a camera, why would you want to save on extra $45 for a original battery and take the risk should it really 'short' your $2k+ equipment. :rolleyes:

My 2 cents worth.
