Hy everyone,

How are you coping with a "lost recipe" trouble?

I was not talking about cruise ships. I was talking about personal watercraft.

Actually they are because the charge and capacity is much greater on the proprietary batteries.

But you still cannot buy an EN-EL3e battery on a cruise ship or at a mini-mart 30 minutes away.

Agreed and I could blow through 500 pictures in one day so if they only get 700 or whatever GB gets (as I haven't see such ability out of the camera I dealt with) I'd still need something charged and ready or readily available.

At this point I think it's fair to say that those convinced that AA are best aren't going to be swayed and those who like proprietary batteries aren't either. This is one of those things where you'll like what you like and no amount of talk is going to convince you the other way.

I still don't like AA battery digital cameras for another reason besides weight and size. I think they make the camera look and feel somewhat 'toyish'.....but that's just me.

Really? My camera looks like an SLR camera and far from "toyish" and it takes 4 AA batteries. My daughters camera slipped into her back pocket and took AA batteries. It was less than an 3/4 inch thick.

Funny thing, I can't find a Fuji that doesn't have a proprietary battery and I need something compact. Grr.

Like I said, it's just me. I'm kinda weird in that way.
