Question about Fuji FinePix S9000 Zoom Digital Camera
Basically, the camera shows the low battery life indicator after around five to ten shots, even though the batteries are brand new. I've tried out multiple different types of batteries and the end result was always the same, if it did not, in fact, worsen in time. For a while it let me shoot one to two photos before it showed the indicator again, and went dead. All it required was a restart though, and I could rinse and repeat. Eventually it just started showing it as I turn it on. Interesting, however, is that it works just fine when I want to review pictures already taken, and I can do it for as long as I want without a glitch.
The problem started when I was taking pictures at a fossil display in a rather dark hall, without a flash though. I tried setting various settings such as ISO, shutter speed and aperture and others to various settings to see if it would help, all to no avail.
I'm rather new to photography so I've absolutely no idea as to what may be causing this, or if it's a hardware or software related issue, so I'm asking if anyone has any idea as to why this keeps occurring?
I had exactly the same problem with mine. It aint the batteries at all. What you propably have is a virus on your memory card (propably the boha virus). reformatting the memory card should do the trick. Very important is to get the source of the virus. If its on your camera it will propably be on your pc as well. Most antivirus software cant delete it, as it "respawns" automatically. the best way so far is to restart pc in safe mode(by keeping f8 in while pc starts( u have to be in safe mode to do this). then open any folder,, and go to "tools" ... "folder options" Click on 'view" and "tick" "show hidden files and folders".
Then go to your C: drive and look at the files inside there. if u see "hidden folders" there with names like boha or vidi etc your pc is infected. delete all the hidden folders except "recycler; MSOCache and System volume information" ( i can remember the exact names but the virus files should be something like "vidi" "boh" or "boha" and "iagjh" or something like that).
Reboot pc afterwards and everything should be fine.

When you say different type... are you refering to the brand or the Milli Amper Hours?
2500 mAh minimum I suggest....
NiMH workes for me
