Question about Nikon Coolpix 3200 Digital Camera
I'm lucky if I get more than a week out of fresh batteries. Some of them like Energizer Lithiums are expensive. I can get maybe a dozen photos out of a fresh pair of Lithiums, but the photos are costing me about $1 each. Rechargeables are not much different; I just can't use the camera while the rechargeables are charging. Disposable cameras are much cheaper to use than my Nikon. Nobody can tell me if my Nikon is defective, or if that's just the way it is. I'm not buying a new camera until I figure out if this is normal for Nikons.
The flash uses more battery than anything else. Try turning off the flash, you may be surprised at the results. The number two power hog is the screen, and it's worthless at the beach or in any bright sunlight. That's why I won't buy a camera that doesn't have a view finder. Still, you should get a lot more than 12 shots from a pair of lithiums. I have a pair of lithiums in a Canon Power Shot that have taken hundreds of stills and quite a bit of video (all outdoors, no flash or screen) and are still usable.
