Canon's museum says: Batteries: "Two 1.3 V M20 (No.625) mercury cells (Contained in the grip)"

One battery is better than two

The camera pictured above works with both two 1.5v batteries and just one 1.5v alkalines.
Initial observations conclude that just one 1.5v button battery is enough to get a stopped down reading in daylight ,
by just looking at the over-under indicator needle in the finder with a K40 cartridge in the camera
With a Vision 200T cartridge, the needle indicates ok bright indoors with one battery
Two batteries (1.5v X2) indicate indoor filming ok with K40. and stopped down all the way indoors with 200T. Could use a manual or more time testing...
