Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
I replace the batteries and a few minutes later it shuts down and says I need new batteries...Have had the camera for 1 year...only started this a few weeks ago.
Had the very same problem. Returned it to CANON through the store I purchased it from. CANON said it was a problem with the shutter circuit and the cost to repair was going to be around $200.00!! I was and am not impressed. CANON would not deal with me direct unless I ship the camera direct to them. The retailer told me that I shouldn't pay to fix it and get a new camera. The camera cost me $600.00 and almost to the day the warranty expired, the batteries started draining! I will get a new camera and it won't be a CANON AND I will also return the camera direct to CANON telling them to fix it at no charge or replace. That way, at least, I'll have something I can sell.

You can also use disposable AA Lithium batteries. I have found these to be the best for digital cameras, better than rechargables.

You need to power it with rechargable batteries. with the MAH being no less than 2000. I bought a charger which came with 2batteries for less than a tenner
