Re: batteries for older cameras...

Some of the batteries were taken off the market by regulations. Some of the old slr batteries, the chemical type was banned, on some other batteries, there were safety regulations that required changes in the way the contacts were exposed (or not)

This can be true for some batteries used by cameras in the 'film era'. Most DSLR (and digital cameras in general) are powered by Li-ion; a few use Ni-Mh batteries, or standard (AA size) batteries. None of these has been banned.
