What type of photos will you be shooting and printing? What size of prints? Do you need an optical zoom?
The A40 has a 2.5X optical zoom and at 2mp you should be able to print good 8X10 photos.

For batteries, get a set (or 2) of NiMh AAs (if the camera can take AAs) 1800mAh or better. Depending on the camera, some people have gotten 400 pictures. And in an emergency you can pop in a set of alkalkine AAs.
