    Even after installing new batteries the low battery light comes on. I even went to the lithium battery. What is the problem?

    I have the same problem. For those "low" batteries to the camera, I still can use them for other equipment such as Wii remote control.

    i can put brand new batteries in the camera and take just a couple pictures, then they die. im getting ready to have a new baby and im afraid i'll have borrow someone elses camera to capture the moment because this camera isnt reliable enough. this camera eats through batteries, and yet i can still use the batteries in other things! apparently you have to have indusrial strength batteries to even get this camera to turn on!

Were you using them in the cold? This can severly reduce battery life.

I use aa battery's in my camera but they only take 5 to 10 pics at a time.......is this normal or is something wrong like maybe a setting or something? what should i do to fix this?


Digital cameras in general use a lot of battery power; this one in particular is noted for short battery life. When it was new, this camera was supplied with a Lithium Ion battery for longer life; if you're using regular AAs, the battery life will be disappointing. Oh, and cheap batteries from the dollar store might not even work at all!

The most cost effective solution is probably high capacity NiMH rechargeable batteries; get a set of four so that you can have spares on hand. If even that isn't acceptable, look into getting the Lithium Ion one.

If you bought this camera used, the short battery life could easily be the reason the original owner got frustrated with it.

Batteries are being drained. We barely use our camera and the batteries are being drained after only a few photos being taken. Camera is rarely used, maybe twice a day. At the most 5 pictures per day. ...

Short battery life


Use the best name brand batteries you can find. Energizers and Duracell work best. Chance the size of your pictures to the smallest you can. At 300 X 300, you can still make 8 X 10 enlargements clearly. The larger the pic, the more power it takes to process it.

Photo brightness


Hello Jrmb,
I would like to know what mode are you clicking these photos in.. because overexposure is due to either slow shutter speeds or large aperture. Try setting the camre mode according to the surrounding light conditions.. for example, no need of flash when you are clicking pictures in broad day light, instead of setting the camera on Auto mode, try using Portrait mode for short distance (5 to 6 meters away) objects etc..
Let me know if that fixes the issue.

And important .. Do not forget to rate the solution :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

Battery life


Are you keeping the large LCD screen on all the time? If so, that will dramatically reduce battery life. Same goes for flash use (although for 8 shots shouldn't be a factor) and constant stabilization. Also, by low battery do you mean that the camera is turning itself off and can't be turned back on? If just the icon is showing low battery life, it could be that the sensor wrong. I have an MP3 player that will say it has zero battery power, but will really play for another two hours. You should be able to take many more than 8 shots with one battery. I've taken 500 photos over a period of nine days on one battery with my FZ10. Viewfinder only, stabilization only when shooting, no flash use.
