Since the day it was bought the camera can only take one picture and then shows low battery, even when the battery is fully charged. No problem when reviewing pictures, only when taking. Took it in for service under warrenty and they replaced the board. Still same problem. Has anyone else had this experience? Any advise?

Hello Calagryflames,

Have you tried a different battery?

It sounds like there is a dead cell in the pack. The high current demands of taking a picture draws the voltage down to where the low battery display comes on.

Lower current demands will work fine.

Thanks Tom - I went out yesterday and bought new batteries with 2500 mah and so far so good.
