When my I bought my first camera courtesy of MIL, we used the batteries that came with it. The battery only lasted a few minutes and it was a waste of money buying batteries all the time. So, I decided to look for rechargeable batteries and charger to have a long lasting energy when using my camera. Until now I am still using the rechargeable batteries and charger even if i already have a new ones that came with the camera and accessories that I bought from my friend. I actually got a good deal with it for the price that is very reasonable.
I haven’t use this camera that much because it was heavy but i love it though. It would be perfect for nature tripping. I also wish to have a Digital SLR camera as it has many features than this fuji fine pix.
