Question about Vivitar ViviCam 8400 Digital Camera
I can only take a total of 10 pictures before my camera goes dead on a new set of batteries. I have used charged batteries, and rechargables also. It lasts only a little longer with the rechargables. I have a friend that has a different model but with the same problem. It doesn't use the flash on every shot, so it couldn't be that. The problem started on the first usage, I have spent a fortune on batteries. Now the camera won't even come on at all with fresh batteries installed?
I have similar problems with a Kodak .. i bought the best lithium ion rechargeable batteries. and it still only lasted for about 10 min..
i put them in the charger and the charger lit up green...meaning the batteries are ready and fully charged only took about 15 min.to go green.
i thought that was strange so next time i just let them stay in the charger for like 3 hours....the next time i used my camera i had it taking pictures for over 2 hours..non stop!!! i was so happy..so the dumb charger was incorrect when it says the battery was fully charged..

Alkaline batteries are a No-No Rechargeable Ni Cads are little better The Best are NiMh Rechargables in the AA cell range or Li-on in the specialist range. Always get for the best.
