    I just recently picked up a Canon Datematic and cant get it to work. I'm pretty sure its the battery issue. I've read that you could replace the original 1.35 mercury batteries with a few LR44's and some tin foil. If anyone has some information on this camera it would be highly appreciated!

    Thanks!
