Question about Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera
I find using duracell batteries that are fully charged, I`m lucky if I get around 60 photos, and if using flash considerably less. what is the problem ? am I doing something wrong ?
If you are using "rechargeable" duracells, use the camera's discharge function to fully drain your cells. Then re-charge them and try again. If you are using the Duracell 15 minute charger leave them in there for ~3 hours, there is a 15 minute quick charge cycle, then a 10 minute cooldown, then a 1.5-2 hour trickle-top off. If you start with a fully discarged cell this will give it a really good full charge and you chould get many more shots out of the camera.
If you are using Duracell "alkaline" non-rechargeable batteries then the # of shots you are getting is about right. Alkalines are really for emergency use only in this camera.

No sorry to say this is normal for this camera! you may want to look for rechargable lithium batterys (they will last longer in a high drain device such as your camera!
