I stopped by the local camera shop on the way out to take the latest generation to visit my old mum yesterday

now while he smiled at my simplistic small easy to use device he has ordered me 4 lithium batteries and a charger for the camera

should be in my possession by mid week

thanks for all the advice peeps xx

The ones i bought were the Duracell AA batteries and I get maybe 10 pics before the camera wont work anymore

they are perfectly good in other things though, just wont get the camera green light going

Alkalis will burn out quickly because they can't pump out enough power, there will still be loads of charge but not enough to power the camera.

For my highdrain stuff i bought this, it's fantastic because you can take the 1hr charger with you and plug it into the car as well.

You could also get the manual out mick, and see what you can do to get more battery life, such as a slightly dimmer screen etc.
