Quick battery drain with Finepix S7000. Only about 25 shots!

\015 I have a Fuji finepix S7000. I've had it for a few years now and since the start I can only get about 25 shots per set of batteries. It's been such an expense that I just boxed it up and haven't used it in a while. Anything I can do to make the batteries last longer? It's to the point that I'm considering getting rid of it.\015

Answers :

\015\012From what I've read (because it has started happening to mine) it could be down to the CompactFlash card.. I may swap to using a high capacity XD card instead to see if that solves it
\015\012Good luck

Low battery I have a FinePix S9500 digital camera which is in great condition (virtually brand new) but is basically useless.
