I bought my wife a camera for her birthday yesterday - a Fujifilm A310 - 3.1MP. It works great for what it's worth and she's happy with it.

This camera isn't in the DPC database so I shot a picture of it in case they like to add it.

The batteries didn't last too long though - 2 AA's. I have a battery charger however that I bought for my 420EX. Is there a type of rechargeable batteries that seems to be superior? I know they differ a lot but not sure which one are best.

I'm spoiled with the batteries for my Rebel - they seem to last forever and I bought a second pack that is even better.

I have a 3.1 MP cam, and I use Energizer 2100mAh rechargables. They last forever as well. Make sure whatever rechargables you get have the highest mAh you want to afford. :) I'm sure whatever comes with the cam is like 1100 or maybe 1400s.

I added the cam to the DPC database. I can't add the photo though, you'll have to wait for Drew or Lang to do that.

ive heard the best rechargeable AA cells you can get are for RC car racing. My brother is into it, and ive seen A LOT of high mAh batteries advertised.

Get NiMh rechargeable batteries, energizer, duracell etc make those with fast chargers. I use Energizer NiMh rechageable batteries on my 550EX flash, they last qute a long time on one charge.

Thanks for your replies. The batteries that were included by the way were Fuji Alcalines... not rechargeable.

I have a Fuji and use 1850 mAh rechargeable and they go on for ages. I work from a pack of 4 then there's always 2 in the camera and 2 spares to charge. The advantage to having a camera with normal batteries is that even if you're caught out you can ALWAYS buy batteries anywhere.

Another dumb question: The Olympus battery is a two pack thing BM-1. A genuine spare is $105 and a generic spare is $20. ANy difference?

I bought a 24 pack of 2000mAh AA's from BatterySpaceseveral months ago, and they work well. In fact, as I check to make sure of the URL I see they have 24 pack 2250mAh AA's on sale (here).
