Question about Canon PowerShot SD10 / IXUS I Digital Camera
I have a problem with my powershot SD10. I have 2 batteries, which I recharge and after taking a few pictures I get the low battery warning and the camera then switches off. I do not want to buy a new battery if the camera has a problem.
It's something with the camera. I have the same camera and the same problem. I bought 2 brand new batteries, charged them, and the very first thing the camera did when I installed the new batteries was tell me that they were dead!! Grrr....
As a workaround, when it tells you the battery is dead, just open the battery door, close it, and try again. Repeat if necessary. With my camera, doing this lets me use the same battery for days and days. The battery is NOT dead - it's just a faulty warning message.

If both batteries are about the same age, it's probably the batteries. Even lithium-ion batteries wear out after a while, and this camera has been out for nearly five years. You could try another battery for around $50 dollars. Or you could buy another camera. Prices are much better than they were even two years ago, and you get all the updated features.
