Third Party Camera Battery
Jul 16, 2010

My S5 Pro uses a Fuji NP-150 battery. Although S5 Pro has a Nikon D200 body, the camera could not use the original Nikon EN-EL3e battery fitted for the D200. I was recently looking for an extra battery for my S5 pro, as the camera is discontinued and I believe that Fuji does not support the parts any longer. A local battery store supplier told me that the replacement (third party) battery is the same for both D200 and S5 Pro. He suggested to bring the camera and try it. I do not want to try it first and get my precious camera fried!

I know that the S5 pro and D200 have practically the same body (except the Fuji has the Supper CCD sensor instead). My question is whether it is possible for a third party camera battery to be used for both cameras, whileas the original cameras only recognize their own brand name battery.
Thanks for info
