There are many cameras that use AA batteries. Other than taking AA batteries, what else is your boss looking for in a camera?

Her only camera requirement is that it use AA batteries. I wasn't kidding, I know how to research cameras for my needs but was hoping for a shortcut here. I haven't had a camera since my oly 5050 from 6 yrs ago that has used AA batteries. I'm honestly asking if there are any cameras out there that use AA's.

Thanks,

Suzan

Do bear in mind that many cameras will work well on pairs, or two pairs of AA batteries, but there's a big difference between single-use throwaway alkaline cells and rechargeable Ni-MH cells, and, for that matter AA-sized lithium batteries, and the end-user needs to understand this.

Many cameras will work well on Ni-MH rechargeables, which can deliver lots of current when needed, but not very well on throwaway alkaline cells, which contain lots of electricity, but can't deliver it very quickly.
