Question about Cameras
I PUT NEW HEAVY DUTY BATTERIES IN MY CAMERA, AND IT STILL ISN'T WORKING.
Alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pictures in a digital camera. Worst performers of all are those "Heavy Duty" batteries. Some may also have reached their shelf life, and though brand new, right out of the package, may even have problems just powering startup of the camera.
Digital cameras that use AA's for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. If you read the camera's instruction manual concerning batteries, you may see the same recommendation.
Keep in mind rechargeable NiMH batteries will save you money in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may be angry with yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah. Avoid NiMH batteries like the plague that do not list the power rating on the package or batteries. These are generally very inferior, low power rated rechargeable batteries.
