I have an A610 and two sets of noname 2100 mAh NiMHs since january.
In january one AA set would give me about 300+ shots. But now it is
only 20-30 shots per charge.
Oh well, I think I need new AAs.

OR maybe a better charger. Also many nonames batteries are junk. Your best bet are Sanyos that are made in Japan. They have a very small "HR" stamped on the negative end. Some older Energizers were made by Sanyo and have the HR stamp. Recent Energizers are different. All AAs, even Sanyos, need to be conditioned to reach full capacity.
