I couldn't think of a better title but hopefully this will suffice. I read Videomaker religiously as one of only two magazines that I never miss a month. The other is HD Video Pro. The stuff I notice in all of the magazines are ads and review guides about all kinds of accessories for cameras. My problem is that this dilutes the market and it makes it very hard to know what are accessories and what are add-ons. Things like mate boxes, add-on batteries, dollies, lights, twelve mics, 87 filters, rail systems, etc. It all just seems so daunting.

I still like shooting on my older Panasonic AG 456U SVHS camcorder, it still shoots good images and records great sound for a 10 year old camera and I can still get new batteries for it. Witch brings me to my question. I would like to know how to extend the battery life. This camera uses Lead-acid batteries, and I was told to drain the batteries completely before recharging them. Normally, I would recharge the batteries after the camera shut itself off because of low battery charge.
