Question about Fuji FinePix S9500 Zoom Digital Camera
Duracell batteries go dead after about 20 shots, so I bought 8 brand new AA NiCd rechargeable batteries (2800mh), but they are not much better - the 'low battery' indicator comes on after only 30 shots. When I recharge them, one battery is flat, but the other 3 are still fully charged. What to do? Jonathon Miles, Spain
Check your focus control on the left side of the camera is not set to "continual focus" CF, as this will constantly adjust focus and run your battery down quickly.
Also NiCd batteries are not very useful -use Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMh) which last longer and don't suffer from memory effects. These batteries don't reach full capacity until after a number of recharge/drain cycles.
