F550EXR battery drain
Apr 6, 2011

My brand new camera F550EXR may be draining the battery when not in use since a fully charged battery lost all its power within two days taking less than 100 photos. The battery was so totally flat that it could not power up the camera after two days. I thought the camera developed a fault. Fortunately when I recharged the battery, the camera functioned OK. But within two days, the battery has gone again, this time with less than 50 photos taken since a full charge!!!

For all these days, I have not even switched on GPS so it is not that causing the problem. I have hardly used the flash either.

Is the camera faulty? Should I return the camera? I don't really want to keeping worrying about taking the battery out when not using the camera.
