AA batteries no longer the trend?

Re: Standardized rechargeable Li-Ion AA?

Granted, some cameras are very very slim these days and the battery form factor helps.

But then there's also the Canon A1200, which is very small -- about the same as the 300HS, but it actually has a nice grip for your hand -- you don't have to add some third-party grip as an aftermarket item!

Therein you find the AA batteries! And, as I said in a post above, I got over 1300 shots on my first set of AA's and they weren't even expended then. I only replaced them for an overseas trip since I wanted fresh batteries. I expect to go the whole year on just those 2 sets of AA's. Note, also, that lithium AA's weigh almost nothing.

I've got 7 cameras with rechargeable Li-ion batteries (alas, all different with different chargers) and 4 cameras with AA's. The convenience of AA's has proven to be a plus, but I don't really care as long as the battery has a charge when I need the camera.

I guess I don't understand the reason for all the passion about this subject.
