Hi Rob,

Did not see any zinc-air 6 volt  batteries in the right shape. Actually 
no 6 volt ones. However...

I discovered this afternoon at the local BatteriesPlus (I had to return 
a car battery core) that both lithium and alkaline replacements are 
available. so I got a couple lithiums.

Will run a roll of film through this old camera just to see if all works!
