How long do the normal batteries last?

I've never owned a digital camera before and would like some feedback about which accessories to get. How long do the normal batteries last per charge on this camera? Should I get the compact flash card or the smart media? any other suggestions would

Re: How long do the normal batteries last?

I use a 2500L for studio portraits and the E10 is on order. Invest in the remote release (the E10 is a huge improvement over the 2500L on that score), the ac adaptor - no need for extra batteries at all and if you wire the computer to the camera you will only need one (fairly large) memory card. The last facility I just mentioned will be an absolute boon in the studio - not so outside. I have an iBook with USB and the way I have had it explained to me is that the camera memory card physically mounts on the desktop of the computer just like another storage device. The thing I hate about compact flash cards is the adaptor that I need to use to download to my iMac and iBook makes things very fiddly but CF cards are much more robust than Smat Media. In a studio with the E10 you would never need to remove the card from the camera! The benefits are huge. Take a shot (or shots) copy them straight onto your hard disk, open them, manipulate them and print them. And take the money! One other thing. I always shoot at the highest resolution with no compression - ie TIFF files. On the E10 they are 12 megabytes each I guarantee that the moment you choose to shoot images at the lower

Hi I have had this camera for a short while, its been working fine, lately i put new batteries in, and it only last for and it tells me low batteries only after a short while, has there being an issue with...


Digital cameras often use batteries quite quickly especially with heavy usage. If you are using standard all purpose batteries you may consider using batteries which last longer in electronics that draw a lot of power such as Duracell PowerPix or Energizer Lithium. Alternatively you may consider investing in rechargable batteries and keeping a spare set in your camera bag.

I am using this camera from last 3 years. It was working fine. Suddenly, a problem occurred. Now whenever I select the Auto mode, it is set to video option instead of still image. I have formatted...


I'm have the exact same problem. Purchased the camera 3.5 years ago. Recently needed to shoot a video, when finished I set the camera back to Auto and it stayed in video. Portrait mode shows manual, all other modes work as assigned. I've noticed at least TWO other posters having the same problem within the last couple of months. It's as though this camera (mfg. 2007) has a Trojan program from the factory to make us buy newer models.

Other than resetting, is there a way to flush and reload the firmware?

How does a battery grip works exactly in a camera like nikon D60?


First of all, Nikon doesn't make a battery grip for the D60 so I'm going to assume you mean any of the available third-party grips.

The grip fits into the battery compartment, replacing the battery, and attaches to the bottom of the camera, screwing into the tripod socket. It can hold two battery packs, doubling the battery capacity. Some grips also let you use AA batteries instead of the normal Li-ion battery packs. It also has a tripod socket of its own, so you can still mount your camera on a tripod.

Some people also find it more comfortable when turning the camera to shoot in portrait orientation. The grip gives you another shutter release button and some of the other controls so you still hold the camera with your hands in more-or-less the same position whether you shoot in landscape or portrait.

Of course, there is a cost for all this. The grip adds significantly to the bulk and weight of the camera.

Hi, Can I use rechargeable lithium-ion batteries in my Fuji S1730 camera. Thank you. Roy.


Hi Roy,

If your camera uses normal AA or AAA batteries you will have no problems with the rechargeable batteries. If you are considering to buy rechargeable batteries always try to buy the higher mAh range batteries. The higher the mAh the longer battery power will last.

Feel free to share if this solved your question!

You can't. The Portrait mode, like all the other point&shoot modes, are automatic. The camera controls most functions, like exposure metering, auto-focus mode, and white-balance. If you want control over the camera, you'll have to use one of the PSAM modes.

Low battery warning


What type of batteries did you buy?

For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.

If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.

Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.

DSC-M1 (or MPEG4) playback on TV


Hello, You spoke about burning a DVD. Have you tried connecting directly your M1's TV out (yellow jack) to your TV set? If the quality level is same in direct connection using the MS as original carrier as with the DVD then "ite missa est", otherwise there is an issue with the DVD burning like reencoding of mpeg4 into mpeg2, maybe some quality parameters to tweek in a remote menu....
