I recently acquired a 1DS Mark II from a relative, perfect shape, but no charger. The battery was dead when I got it.
Having relied on a 10D for the last year, I can't tell you how anxious I am to start using this full frame sensor with three times the resolution.
But I can't shell out $400+ for a Canon NC-E2 charger right now. I've searched and searched for a 3rd party replacement, but all I can find are chargers for the Mark III and newer, after they switched away from NiMH batteries.
Is anyone familiar with something that would work...perhaps a universal charger of some sort, with universal adapter pins?
Any input would be appreciated!
