Question about Samsung Digimax S730 Digital Camera
It uses batteries like there was no tomorrow and I believe it is rechargeable but this was an optional item and I didn't know I, a thing about what i needed. help!!
Digital cameras in general use massive amounts of power to supply their internal electronics and that big, beautiful, bright LCD view screen.
We switched to 2500ma NiMH rechargeable batteries. At first they would barely work, about 25 shots and they would die, after 5 to 10 discharge/ recharge cycles though, they now work great. I recharge them every night and like to leave at least one set on the charger all the time to keep it 'topped up'. Most chargers have this feature, ours even has a built in fan for when the batteries get hot (they do on fast-charge mode).
Now the rechargeables work great, we recently went to a race for my daughter and took 1.5 gigs of photos and movies on one set of batteries! Amazing, considering with standard AAs, we would get about 6-10 minutes of 640x480 movies on a set of batteries.
Our rechargeable set is a cheapo Walmart close out (got it for $15- four batteries and charger!) by Digital Concepts.
Hope this helps,
