Re: Just wondering...

I have the Canon s5 IS.

Likes: It takes great pictures, is very adjustable (lots of manual settings), 12x zoom!, takes AA batteries (always available)

Dislikes: It can sometimes be very slow when using the flash

Re: Just wondering...

Mine seem to last fairly long, what kind of rechargables are you using?

Re: Just wondering...

I have tried the Energizer recharables, Duracell recharables and one more kind, just can't remember what kind. If I use the non-recharable batteries I go through them twice as fast.....

Nikon d70, bought the external speed light. Really like the d90 as it does video which the normal slr's done.

Still have an old digital camera since my mini cam died.

Re: Just wondering...

I love my Nikon becuase it fits in my pocket, it takes a big fat memory card and the video camera part takes a good long movie (don't know how long it would go, some I have are 10 minutes).

I don't like the time delay on it, my sony had a much more predicable delay and I took better pictures becuase of it.

I have an Olympus SP-510UZ...I love it! I am by no means a photographer but this camera is so easy to use, and takes the most amazing pics that it makes me feel like a great photographer!

Ok, energizer rechargables work great only if you use them right out of the charger. the more time that passes after they are charged, the less battery life they will have. For example, if you charge them up and put them in your camera bag and use them in a few weeks, they will have lost like 30% of their charge from just sitting there.

From the research I've done, the SANYO eneloop batteries are best at holding their charge.

Don't know if that will help you or not.

Add this to my list of Dislikes about the Canon s5 - it is big and bulky and won't fit in your pocket Unfortunately, this is going to be true of any camera with 12x zoom.
