Ok. So I went out and bought a digital camera that does what I want but then oh dear I discovered it has it's own purpose made battery which costs 30+ to replace. What are peoples opinion of these things? Should I take it back and change it for one that uses standard AA batteries? I have little use for a digital (I still like film. They are 'proper' cameras ) and at least I could use those batteries for something else will the digital isnt in use which will be often. What do you think?
