Having problems with your Epson PhotoPC 3100Z Digital Camera ?

Epson 3100Z battery life/power consumption


\015 Just want to ask about the battery life/power consumption of your Epson 3000/3100z. I'm a little worried about mine because my 4 GP 1600mah batteries deliver only around 140 pictures with the LCD turned off and sleep switched to 30 seconds. With the LCD turned on, I get about 70 pictures. These figures include occasional image playback, setup menu changes, and data transfer via the camera's USB port. Also, when I shoot, I usually leave my camera in sleep mode, which means I do not turn it on and off while in one particular photo session.\015\012\015\012Judging from these figures, is my digicam's battery life normal?\015

Answers :

It's most likely that the batteries become weaker with time. I come across similar situation and cured it by 4 pcs. of new batteries.
I have only had my 3100Z for about 3 months but I have found the battery life outstanding. I have the NI-MH batteries and haven't actually counted the number of pictures I take between chargings but it seems as if it is 200 or more. I also have many menu changes, view the photos in the camera and leave it on between shots. I also have sleep set for 30 seconds.\015\012\015\012I have actually never run the batteries down but recharged them twice in anticipation of needing plenty of power when I planned to take a lot of pictures. I'm guessing that you might have some faulty batteries.

My Fuji A700 simply eats up batteries,it has got to a point where I am only able to download 20 pictures with a BRAND NEW SET OF BATTERIES. It was as consumptive with rechargeable versions. I understand this is a common problem that makes the camera unuseable, obviously it is simply not up to the job, they are not exactly eco friendly at that rate of power consumption and subsequent disposal of the dead batteries.

External Flash I set my Epson 3100z camera to manual mode and set up the camera for external flash. I manually set the shutter speed to 1/60 sec and the aperture to F4. I also set my SunPak flash to F4. My exposures seem pretty good. However when I review the various photo info's, the aperture reading is F5 or F4.8 not the F4 I set. Why is this? Anyone experienced this? The shutter speed are also not always what I set on the camera.

I have an olympus 'mju' 700 camera which uses li-ion 42b battery and a li-40c charger. Whenever i charge my batteries, the charging light would start flashing (which is not the sign of charging because the light should be still) and when this happens, the battery would not charge. The only way i could make my battery charge was to slot the battery in the charger whilst the power is on (usually, i slot the battery in then turn on the power). But i was using my batteries on a day out, 2 days aft
