I agree; I think the HS20 and the Pentax K-x (I hope I have the model number right?) were the last two "serious" cameras that use AA batteries as their primary power source (and the latter is a DSLR!) I say primary because there are many DSLR that have AA battery grips as an option and these seem to be quite popular. (I have one for the E-520.)

Undoubtedly if someone needs to have a massively increased power supply for their camera an AA battery grip is a great way to do it. There is only so much you can put into one battery in one battery compartment, be it lith ion or whatever.

If someone needs that much power, it's an option at least.
