I don't know why anyone would want AA batteries in compact cameras. OEM rechargeable batteries are so much better.

Yet most likely you would not need to "run out" to get AAs as they are > standard and if you relied on AAs you would have a supply.

A aa battery user is as likely to forget extra aa's about as likely you you leaving your house without your pants on!

Sorry, pal, but the market has spoken. Small electronic devices (mp3 players, cameras, cell phones, tablets, etc.) all tend to sell better when they have compact proprietary batteries. No one is screaming for cell phones or mp3 players that use AA batteries. And quite frankly, fewer people prefer to buy cameras that use AA batteries, too, even though they sit on store shelves right next to the ones that use proprietary batteries.
