Because they understand the benefits of the new equipment, and understand also that are being screwed with the batteries.

But they're not getting screwed with the batteries. Battery technology has improved greatly over the last few years just like digital cameras have.

Yes, the batteries do improve. But this does not forces them to make the improved ones incompatible with the old ones, does not force them to have each brand a different battery differing only in insignificant details, and does not force them to put chips in the batteries to prevent independent makers to supply compatible batteries.

Chipped batteries are used by a few brands today, but wait a little and we will see no more cheap compatible batteries. UNLESS we vote, with our wallets, against such practices.
