    Hi folks,
    As a forthcoming newbie to digicams I've been reading various reviews,
    The Fuji Finepix S602 looks very attractive except for the heavy battery
    usage,
    My questions are, Is this a big drawback? if so then is there an equivelent
    /alternative camera on the market?
    Thanks for any help /advice,,,,,,,

    I have the S602. Great cmaera overall. Image quality is very good and loads
    of features, some unique to Fuji. I had also read that it is heavy on
    battery usage but I have NOT found this to be the case. I have 2 sets of
    rechargeable AA batteries and a rapid charger (home or car takes an hour or
    less!).......and I keep a spare set of regular AA alkaline batteries (good
    quaity ones) in my camera case just in case. But I've never needed them. I
    wouldn't let what you've read about battery usage stop me from buying this
    excellent camera! Good luck.

  3. Heavy batt useage? noope. I have a S602 and get about 300 to 350 pics
    on a set of 1600ah AA Nimh. ($10 at walmart) that is some flash usage,
    lots of zooming, etc. It is as good as or perhaps better than my older
    Fuji 1400z 1mp camera (with LCD use it would give me about 200 shots,
    with NO screen use about 700. it also uses 4 AA)

    a 256Mb CF card at 6mp fine mode holds a bit over 100 pics, at 3mp
    fine about 220 pics. If i can fill my card 2 or 3 times on one batt
    charge, I am MORE than satisfied.

    The S602 has been discontinued, so you should be able to find some
    deals on them., I have seen them new on Ebay for under $400. don't pay
    more than that!
