Default Which Eneloop to Buy?

I have read the posts on rechargeable batteries and they all seem to overwhelmingly point to the Eneloop. But most of them aren't very current and that is why I was hoping with the advent of the new models I could get some specific direction.

So, I went to Amazon and started looking at what they have to offer and I find there are many models to choose from.

So, we have a HS 10 Finepix that we will use the batteries in and we are a casual photographer. We take wildlife photos and as we are out and about or at our home the camera could be used 5x a week and maybe 10 shots each time. Most all shots are without flash. Twice a month we go where in one day 500 - 700 shots may be used for two days and then back to the routine of photos around the house or somewhere close by.

I have read of the 1500, 2000,2700, pro, plus and 2500. Can someone clarify for our needs what is best. I read the post of the wedding photographer but we don't use the camera that much so that is why I am wanting some clarification. If Amazon doesn't carry the one we need please tell us where we can find it.

Thanks,

Randal

The 1500s should be more then adequate. Buy more then you think you will need. They take along time to recharge.
Always have backups charged and ready to go.
I got all mine (28aa and 4aaa) from amazon.
Works great with all 4 of my flashes.

G'day Randal

All battery makers are pushing the capacity of batteries - Since my first rechargeables in 1986 were 1350mAh [and still working today], today's batteries are pushing 3000mAh

I would suggest any of the sizes you mention in your OP - my Eneloops are 2000's & 2400's and they both seem to operate identically or close to identically

Regards, Phil
