Buy a proper NiMH rechargeable batteries (Sanyo Eneloop for example). Modern cameras will drain alkaline batteries in the matter of hours, not days.

How do i fix low battery problem, I get about 5 o 6 photos before it shuts down to low battery and i want to change the batteries.


Some batteries, although the correct nominal voltage for the camera, are not powerful enough for continued use. I have found the best solution is to use rechargeable NiMH batteries of at least 2100 MaH, preferably 2500 MaH.

1. Is your card very full of pics? More pics just slow down a card.2. Is your card a "cheap" slow-speed card? If so, it can't keep up. If your camera uses SD cards, get a class 6 or better.3. After downloading your pics to your computer, get in the habit of formatting the card in the camera to erase it and return it to original condition.

The SX 130 is camera is brand new. With fresh batteries (NIMH 1,2 v) the battery warning light activates after just a couple of minutes of going through the on sceen camera menus. I checked the batteries...


there is a fault n the battery compartment. There is nothing to do with the settings. No such options.
Clean your battery compartment with a cotton swab and then try. Else take it back to a service center with your warranty card.

Recharge your batteries for AT LEAST 15 hours, even if your charger's light indicates full charge. You should get at least 200 pics from a charge.

Canon a 310 takes so long to take a second picture, very slow


I have an A310, and really like the quality of the pictures and videos it takes. But what you describe is not unusual for this particular model camera. Lag between shots in bright sunlight is usually minimal, but may be very pronounced in darker conditions. It's caused by inefficient and slow charging of the camera's flash capacitor.

There's nothing you can do to modify the design of the camera to change this. But you can try to minimize this some by using batteries with higher power rating. Alkaline batteries will not work very well in this camera, even if brand new. Would instead recommend that you consider rechargeable NiMH batteries. They run about $7 these days for a package of four. But they'll save you big bucks in the long run. Look on the package for power rating of 2,500mah or better.
