Jazz Digital Camera JDC87

I am using brand new Duracell AAA batteries, but they get used up very fast. The batteries last only for about 10 pictures, then it says "Weak Batteries" and the camera shuts off.
What do?

This one is easy. The alkalines simply do not have enough power. You will have to upgrade to a better battery such as rechargeable Nickel Metal Hybrid (NiMH). Problem solved guaranteed. The new batteries must be rated at 1600 milliAmp hours or better. I use Monster brand rated at a very good 1850 mAh and work very well. I bought a Monster brand charger with 4 batteries for under 20 dollars. This info is for AA cells and will vary for AAA's.,,,,,,good shooting!

Why do batteries run down in two weeks

You don't tell us the brand of camera or the type of batteries. Some digital cameras seem to eat batteries really fast. If your camera uses AA or AAA you could try rechargable batteries . They cost a bit more but usually last a lot longer in digital cameras and can be re-used many times.

My A720 IS (just aquired) wears out a new set of alkaline batteries in about 25-30 pictures. I've tried two different brands with the same results. Other cameras I've used with the same batteries will...

I only use Energizer Lithium or Ultimate Lithium batteries, the other wore out too fast for me too. I tried to be environmentally friendly, but not when you can only take as you said 20 - 30 photos.

heard of one mans garbage being anothers treasure but never thought my own garbage would fall into that catagory.haha

ps i never did find a driver online or any sort of support . its a good camera but it goes through the batteries pretty fast and if you lose your software its pretty much a paperweight.

Camera turns itself off while i am using movie mode

Use alkaline batteries like duracell. Digital cameras support only extra duty batteries.
