AKICILJ: camera batteries

The ol' digital camera is giving me grief. Specifically, I am getting the "low battery warning" and consequent shut down as soon as I put new batteries into it. It wasn't such a battery hog when I first bought it (though still went through them pretty fast); but this is not supportable.

Is it worth buying rechargable NiMH batteries and trying them out? On the plus side, I get the impression from various websites that they are much better in digital cameras than standard alkaline batteries (which I've been using so far). Also I suppose they are better for the environment if I keep on using them. On the downside, if the camera is basically broken (which is a concern, given that it didn't always have this problem so badly) perhaps I would just be throwing good monety after bad?

Advice gratefully received. (Especially from sciamanna or anyone else who also has the Fuji Finepix A340.)

Well worth your while buying NiMHs; always found them far better in digital cameras that take the standard batteries you can buy in the high street; cameras have a habit of eating alkaline batteries for breakfast. Besides, you can always use the NiMHs for many other things if the camera continues to be a hog.

Personally, though, I'll stick with my Canon, which takes a type of rechargeable battery that's fairly easy to find and lasts a lot longer than the HP7s or HP13s found in other brands.
