Re: Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1
Make sure you use good, high-power batteries. I had a camera that couldn't use cheap batteries, as they didn't have enough juice.
Check the battery contacts in your camera tho see if there may be corrosion or shorts that may drain the batteries when you insert them.

The DSC-S500 uses standard AA batteries, either disposable alkalines or rechargeable NiMHs. If you use rechargeables, they must be charged outside the camera using a separate charger.
The choice is up to you. The camera will take more photos on a set of alkalines than on one charge of NiMHs, and alkalines are cheaper. However the NiMHs can be recharged and used again, while alkalines are one-use.
Hey rolvnetr, The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 Digital Camera should be powered by 2 AA batteries. There are 3 main varieties of AA batteries which are Alkaline, Lithium, and rechargeable NiMH batteries. I prefer Lithium batteries, but rechargeable batteries are also nice but once they start losing their charge it goes fast so have a backup set. You should be able to buy any of these batteries at most retailers, and of course our Best Buy™ stores carry these batteries. Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
