What do you mean by "normal AA"? It should at least power up with good quality AA Alkaline Batteries ( most models will, some models won't), but I would not expect it to last very long this way. Buy yourself some good quality (high capacity) NiMH AA batteries with a charger.

Alkalines are virtually useless in most digital cameras (and you can forget using batteries with less power than Alkalines, too).See this article:
