Have been using a C5050 for a couple years with great results. However, every time the batteries are changes settings revert to default and the time and date reset. My battery changes are done in less than 30 seconds. Just opening the battery cover for an instant has the same effect. Otherwise the camer works fine. Anyone experience similar behavior? Thanks.

The exact same thing happens. Clock, jpeg mode, which card, ISO etc. I sent it to a camera repair guy and I was told that there is an internal coin cell but I doubt it because the manual says that the settings should last for an hour. Must be a capacitor.
