Having problems with your Samsung Digimax V50 Digital Camera ?
Problems with Samsung Digimax v 50 battery consumption.
\015 I tried with rechargable 2500 mh NI-MH batteries.\015\012I tried with CR-V3. But the battery consumption of my Samsung is terribly high.\015\012Sometime I can only achieve one hour of operation, then the camera dies. I put on new batteries, but it seems that they are drained in a very short time.\015\012I suspect that there could be something wrong in the electric circuit that abnormally consumes the batteries.\015\012But this is my first digital camera. Can someone with more experience than memgove me an opinion ?\015
There is not a lot of user information on this camera.\015\012I did find some and they all complained about the battery life.\015\012\015\012\015\012If you are connecting the camera to your computer you lose a lot of battery life just downloading photos to the computer.\015\012\015\012Get a card reader.\015\012\015\012Some cameras will let you turn off the LCD screen and just use the optical viewfinder. Check your owner's manual and see if you have that option.

Bad Battery My DIgimax 530 has had battery problems for some time now. I know that this problem has not been like this forever. When I put a new battery in, it uses it quite quickly, then says low battery. The only problem is, when I test the batteries with my battery tester, it says that they are partially full (still in the "good" zone). I am just a kid and don't have much money, I use it for the video feature. It's warranty has timed out, Is there a simple solution?

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.
Is this only a problem when downloading the pics to your computer? If so, just use a card reader instead of your camera. ... Fuji FinePix A700 Digital Camera

Samsung s500 I just bought this camera about 8 months ago, but it has never seemed to work right. It goes thru batteries like crazy. It will only take about 3 pics for every new set of batteries I put in it. I think I have spent more in batteries now han I originally did on the camera. Someone said to get rechargable batteries, this would be cost effective, however does not solve my problem of 3 pics before I would have to recharge. What can I do?

I have a samsung digimax S600 camera. From not too long back i have been having problems with the image quality of pictures clicked in broad day light in the outdoor. There is no problem, however, indoors whatever the light condition. Also, if i shoot a video using the camera, even on the outdoors, i get satisfactory results (not any different from earlier). What could be the problem? Thanks.
