I was just reading that article you linked to about batteries, and also a thread at photo.net that pretty much agreed with that, stating that cameras like the SRT series that were made for mercury cells need the mr9 adapter and 386 silver cells. It also says that 1.5v alkaline cells are not reliable in cameras like the X700 and other newer cameras designed to use 1.5v MS76 silver oxide cells, as the discharge curve is poor, and the alkaline cells mess with meter accuracy. However, they state that S76 and SR44 silver oxide cells are reliable alternatives to the MS76, as is the double thickness 3v lithium CR1/3N, which can replace the dual stacked MS76 types.Not sure if these will work to deliver exact voltage and stable output, although I hope they will work for you.
