HS10 Battery life?
May 23, 2010

I have had my HS10 for a few weeks now, firstly I fitted the camera with brand new top quality alkaline batteries, as with a new camera you use it to get used to it and thought that was the reason why the batteries only last a very very short time, I had the battery setting of the camera on "alkaline"

I thought it would last longer on rechargeable MiNH so went out and bought 12 batteries and a charger, I fully charged up the batteries, I put a set in the camera, set the camera to Nimh in the menu, they were in the camera for three days and I did not use the camera at all, when I came to use it after one photo was taken it was showing the red very low battery icon in the screen.

Has anyone else had this problem? to me it is quite unusable with this very limited battery life.
