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.)

yes far better off buying rechargables however you need to buy high milliamperage batteries NiMH are the best to go for in his opinion. Habit to get into with digital cameras is to set it to go into standby/off between shots of about 1-2 minutes.

The camera shouldn't be giving you hassle it isn't that old. The problem could be cheap batteries.
