Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix L11 Digital Camera ?

Regular AA batteries have a very short life in camera



Answers :

Regular Alkaline AA's don't last very long you are so right and it's a wonder because they actually pack more power but just don't have the staying power in I'll say most digital point and shoot cameras. I can only suggest that you purchase a four pack of rechargeable batteries and a charger, you will find way more then double the life or use before needing to recharge the batteries.
Again I can only suggest when you are buying rechargeable batteries for your camera look for a new type that will say on the package (no doubt in fine print) that the batteries will hold up to 80% of their power for one year. That is the key to having batteries with power when you want or need the camera. The batteries are only 2000mAh NI-MH but will hold their own up against the 2700mAh I use in some of my other equipment. I first started to use this "new" type of long lasting battery about two years ago first produced under the "Sony" label and have since seen them under no-name labels at the department store check out for a pretty cheap price in comparison but they were batteries only not the charger. So the first hurt is getting four batteries with a charger and you will be good to go. The key think here is to see first if it says on the package ready to use and another holds up to 80% of it's power for one year I use a lot of battery power with remote photography sets and I'll eventually switch my batteries over to this type.
Cheers I know this will help your situation have a great day
Digital cameras go through normal AA batteries like crazy! Spend a little more on the ones that are intended for camera use and they will last longer. If you REALLY want to save some money, get the rechargeable ones. I bought a AA/AAA charger that included 2 AA digital camera batteries, for under $15, and have been using them for over 3 yrs w/o a problem!

Battery life is so short i cant take anymore than a couple of photos before camera loses power. I've tried several different types of rechargeable batteries and even regular AA batteries.

My camera has a delayed response when I push the shutter button down to snap a picture-it takes 3-4 seconds and then the moment is gone! Another problem I have is the pictures moniter are blurry. Also, the battery life in the camera is extremely short. I charge them on a regular basis. (My daughter threw the camera on the floor in a rage)is there any way the camera can be fixed or will it cost just as much to buy a new, better one?

Hi, I have a Finepix A600, it has a very short battery life using NiMh batteries. While it was under warranty it had a software upgrade to improve the battery threshold tolerance of the camera. This made some improvement, but the battery life is still short. The NiMh batteries are fine. Is there anything that can be done. Thanks

Battery life When I first had this camera, about 3 years ago, the rechargeable batteries I bought seemed to last for ages. But more recently the "low battery warning" has been coming on very shortly after inserting freshly charged batteries. I have tried using ordinary batteries (high powered) but even with these I can only take a few pictures before the warning light comes on. Once the light is on, the camera goes dead after a few more pictures so it's not giving me a false "low battery" warnin

Battery life My fuji Finepix s3000 does not work for more than a few minutes running time on fresh batteries. I just bought new batteries/charger to confirm this. Is there some kind of short circuit within the camera? Is this a known problem? I've hardly used the camera (partly due to the fact that it always has dead batteries in it).
