Want to buy - AA battery grip for SFXn film camera

The SFXn (and maybe the original SFX) can use either the common 2CR5 battery grip or an alternative one which takes four AA batteries).

I would like one of the AA packs if anyone has one for sale or knows where one can be sourced. It must be fully functional and preferably in good cosmetic condition too.

Many thanks

Are you sure there was a separate GRIP? If it was anything like the Z1p it used the 2cr5 battery in the camera body grip and could use AA batteries in the same place. There was a grip for the Z1p but that's all it was. A grip, it didn't hold any batteries. It was for comfort and cosmetics only.
I may be wrong but check it out.
CHEERS Vic.

It was a larger battery holder rather than a grip I think

Not a grip in the conventional sense. The normal grip for 2CR5 batteries comes off and the larger AA grip goes on.

No need to apologise.
