Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

What is the best way to charge up rechargeable NiMh batteries,? Is a fast stronger charger, better, than a longer slower charger? Is full 18-24 charge always the best way, to go? or smaller short time 2-4 hour charges? I just can not get many flash digital photos taken with my rechargeables, apprx 25-35, before I need to recharge them again. Thank you for clearing up all the different theories, that our being presented, and I can get a clearer picture, of what to do...

Hi there,\012

Well There are several types of battery charges with different options on each. You may not need to buy the top of the line industrial battery charger, but it would be recommended to shop them in the middle price-range. The settings on the charger will dictate the amount of time it will take to charge a battery. The most important setting to dictate the amount of time is the amp setting. The lower the amp setting, the longer it will take the battery to recharge. 
Anyway I wold like to suggest you a slower (low amp's) charger, because it's fact that the slower battery charge and they stay Long... (note. do not use a very slow charger (very low amp's charger).

Good Luck!!

Thanks

EasyShare Z712IS Purchased this camera in Aug. I love it but I can't seem to keep a charged battery in it. I bought some 2X rechargeable NI-MH batteries.

When I turn the power on, it beeps and says "turn the power off and on again" plus it shows a battery in the upper lefthand corner. When I turn it off and on, I get the same message. I can view stored pictures but can't take pictures. I have charged the batteries and it makes no difference. Since I have been using and recharging the same batteries since I got the camera, could it just be that I need new rechargeable batteries? I bought the camera in 2004 and love it. Is there any hope for this c

Canon SD30 I just recieved my brand new CanonSD30 in the mail, it says that i need to charge the battery on the charger for 90 minutes and the light will be orange until it is fully charged and should be taken off the charger immediately when the light turns green.
