Camera batteries

Hi all, I was not sure which part of the forum to ask this question, unless camera is counted as tackle, but here goes, and chide me if you must.
The issue is rechargeable batteries for cameras. My camera takes AA cells, and I have been using lets say Big name batteries, and I am lucky to get off two shots without having to do a battery change. Fair to say they are a couple of years old, and have been cycled a good few times. I also have a couple of "digitor" batteries, which are as old, and are a lot better.
Question is, does anyone have a strong opinion, of which batteries are the best to get. I just hate having to charge 'n' change all the time. I could ask at a camera shop, and I am sure the ones that give the best profit margin will be suggested.

Cheers all Andybear :lol:

I had a lot of trouble with my batteries in my last Digital camera, a Fuji (cant remember the model but it cost about $500 about three years ago) but have since bought a Fuji A310 for about the same money. ( Now on ebay for about $30 secondhand!)

Have been using Fuji 21oo, Ni -Mh in the current camera and find them very satisfactory, would get about 100 photos from them even though I seem to use the flash quite a bit.

I think that the later cameras have a better battery management system in them for what it is worth.

What do you blokes think??
