G3 with 3rd party battery?
Oct 25, 2011

I'm about to pull the trigger on a G3 (body only) and I wonder if it works with 3rd party batteries. A Lumix spare battery goes for $50 on Amazon. I found some generic replacement batteries so should I assume that the batteries have been made to fool the firmware or the G3 does not have the same restriction imposed by Panasonic starting with firmware 1.3 for the G1?
