batteries
« on: May 17, 2006, 05:40:44 PM »
The camera I've got uses AAs. I was using it the other night and got like 30 pix out of 2 AAs. I just bought some Energizer "Lithium" batteries, I'm gonna see if those really last 7x as long as normal batteries. Should I just get rechargable batteries? Is there a brand that works best for digital cameras? Let me know what you guys are using.

My digital camera lasts for a long time with a Rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery.

Lasts for the same amount of time it takes for over 300 pictures on the highest JPEG quality (around 50 of highest quality; one level up). Of course, I use Continuous Auto Focus... so the battery drains in .5-.75 of the time above.

Thanks for the feedback. You're completely backed up by an article I read.
This is all about choosing a digital camera, but they had a page dedicated to batteries...
