Batteries last 15 minutes if you're lucky.....,
This review is from: Samsung D75 7MP Digital Camera (Electronics)This is a brilliant little camera in several respects; light-weight, very easy to use, features a great zoom and wonderful crystal-clear quality picture. The only problem is, the batteries die far, far too quickly. I bought this camera for a relative and was shocked and disappointed to learn how quickly the power ran out. Like most models, it requires 2 decent AA batteries (I recommend rechargeables) but brand-new batteries are left dead after about 15 minutes if you don't keep the camera turned off continuously when not in use and they run out ridiculously fast even when you do. This is the only flaw I can find with the camera but it's one that makes me wish I'd not bothered. It's a shame, because it really is a good quality camera but the power problem really makes it a big miss.
Important note: The internal memory only holds about 7 photographs, so if you choose to buy this as a gift, make sure you include a seperately-bought memory card.
