There may be something wrong with my camera. Every time I put a fresh set of batteries in, I get about 5 pictures before the batteries are depleted. I’ve read online that Pentax K-series DSLR’s are known to be particular about the batteries you use. I have a K2000 and I’ve only used Energizer Lithium batteries, and I usually can take several hundred photos before needing to replace the batteries. Of course over the last few weeks I’ve been using my flash quite a bit since I’m inside at night. I just purchased some rechargeable batteries that I’ve read should work well. If they don’t I’ll have to take my camera in and hope there’s nothing seriously wrong since I really don’t want to spend a lot to fix the camera (I’m considering switching to Nikon so I’d rather not have to fix this camera). Our point and shoot is going bad as well and freezes up quite often. Boo for bad cameras!
And this was my attempt to take one with the Sony Cybershot point and shoot…then it died too! Bad lighting, bad white balance, blurry. Ugh, I hate point and shoots now.
