Question about Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera
A620 using four ( freshly chgd) aa ni-mh 2500 batteries chg lasts for 50 pics. this camera is rated vg for battery life. 50 pics aint good.
Sounds like the actual batteries are the culprit to me, it could be a single battery in the mix that is faulty or loosing it's ability to hold a charge. I would get four fresh disposable batteries (some duracells or something like that) and pop them in there.
I have this same camera and whenever I use rechargeable batteries the unit does drain them pretty quick. Also, it has worn out quite a few of my rechargeables. Definitely try some fresh batteries right out of the package, I have a feeling it will work great. Also, be sure you turn it off after taking your last picture, I've forgotten and left mine one and the timeout for the screen seems to be extremely long.
If you have tried brand new non-rechargeable batteries and it still only last 50 pictures then the camera is having amperage draw issues, this is something that will need to be repaired by Canon. If need be, their number is 1-800-828-4040.
My same exact model camera lasts at least 300 pictures or so as long as I am careful about turning it off promptly.
Oh yes, also, if you are using the USB connection on the camera to transfer the pictures this can also cause the issue you are describing. In that case please make sure you take the memory card out of the camera and pop it in a memory card reader to transfer the photos. Either that or you will just have to get used to the idea of carrying extra batteries and recharging them.
