Hi guys,

I have left my s5600 with no batteries for two or three days, I do not remember exactly. I've put the batteries on again but every setting was gone (beep volumes, behaviour, colors, resolution and quality, everything) ... like a factory reset.Does it not use an internal flash to keep the settings? If not this is not very nice from Fuji.

Many cameras use a simple capacitor as the energy source for maintaining the setup info between battery changes and they will not retain a charge longer than 12-24 hours.

Thanks for the info Steve. This is dumb in my opinion. More simpler cameras do a better job with this. For example I left my a70 for a month without batteries and it kept it's data. That surely has some flash mem.
