It seems like I am forever replacing batteries in my S40. They seem to deplete awfully quickly. I can put a fresh pair of AA batteries in, and in 5 hours or less they will be totally depleted.

Here's another scenario: If I put fresh batteries in and shut the camera off and come back to it a few days later, the batteries will either be low or totally depleted.

What's wrong here?? Anyone having the same problems? It seems to me that batteries should last a lot longer than this. Can anyone offer any help or suggestions?? Thanks in advance.:arrow:

Are we talking alkaline batteries here? If so then get yourself some high capacity NiMH rechargeables - last much longer and reuse them hundreds of times and save a lot of money and your local landfill. See my NiMH battery page:

You're exactly right! I am using alkaline batteries and the link you provided is very helpful. Thanks! Obviously, I am a novice at digital photgraphy and I appreciate your help.
