Drawbacks to using film

I have an Olympus OM - 1, and findingg film for it is fairly easy, but finding a BATTERY is a problem. Since mercury batteries used in the 1970's are outlawed for environmental reasons, I have to substitute. I found a company in England "Small Battery Company" that sells something called a WeinCELL MRB625. Wish there were someplace to get it in the US.

Warren E. Wilson   There is....just about any camera store will carry them.
I know....I know...they look at you funny when you ask for a roll of Tri-X...but they should be able to at least order it for you. I gave up on spending the $ for a new battery, got a light meter.
