Question about Samsung Digimax D53 Digital Camera
The batteriess go dead every 5 - 8 pics have I got something ativated that is eating my batteries. I have tried all types of batteries took it back to the store and was told that is the way these cameras operate. Samsung said it was probably caused by using video which I haven't done.
I was having the same problem until i bought Duracell Rechargable Batteries. When you go to your menu option and setting you will see that the camera is set to Alkaline meaning that the camera will best operate with Alkaline Batteries. The Duracell Rechargable Batteries cost retail 14.99 and come with four batteries and a charger. They are normal AA batteries but they are Alkaline and I have found last me a long time and if the battery dies I simply recharge them and the camera works perfectly. Hope this helps.

Hello, Thanks to all who have taken part and offered assistance - I think the second solution may be the answer offered by Guest.
Basically, get another camera - I have tried everything with this camera and have given up.

Don't bother with alkaline batteries. They are useless in digicams, and particularly so with some Samsung models. Use rechargeables, or "oxyride" high current disposables.
There may be a setting in the menu for which type of battery you are using, which may help, but still, you are better off not using alkalines. The stupid part is, cameas are often shipped with alkalines in the box! Great way to dissapoint customers! (
