Hi:

I recently acquired a Rollei A110.  Since it uses a PX27 mercury cell I =
am facing "the battery problem."  As I see it, there are two practical =
solutions for me:  (1) Buy the Excell S27PX silver oxide cell, which =
provides 6 volts output as compared to the 5.6 volts provided by the =
PX27; or (2) purchase a V27PX adapter from CRIS camera,  $29.95, which =
uses four silver oxide 386 batteries, but which apparently reduces the =
output voltage to 5.6 volts.  I read somewhere that the 6 volt battery =
can cause a two-stop longer exposure.  I would appreciate hearing from =
anyone who has any thoughts on this matter.  Also, what camera functions =
are affected by the higher voltage:  the meter reading?, the shutter =
speed?, the aperture setting?  Would it have any effect on the flash =
unit?

Thanks
