Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
When I insert new 4 AA batteries in Canon Powershot S2, the batteries are exhausted after taking ahrdly 5-6 snaps. I have tried doing this thrice by inserting absolutely new batteris. Is there a problem with the model I am having or have I done some settings which have suddenly increased the power consumption.
Sounds like you need to call Canon. I use Energizer e2 batteries and take 700 pictures and several videos during a show I attend and still have battery life. Even with normal batteries you should be able to take several hundred pictures. Are you still under warranty?
