Camera- Any downside to buying non name brand batts?
IE the lithium battery for the Nikon d80? As I was looking around for my nikon d80 purchase, I realized it'd be nice to have 1 or 2 spare batteries. I've run into many sites selling non nikon brand replica batteries. They all say the same line about up to if not above the standard of the name brand EN-EL3E battery. I found one site that sells one for 17$ vs the 40-60$ nikon one.
Also.... is there any downside to buying an 8 or 16gb mem SD card vs tons of 1 or 2 gb cards? I found a site that sells an 8 gb High speed sandisk card for 37$ after rebate.
I'm looking around spotting out where I'm gunna get the gear. I almost have enough money for the purchase.
