losing battery life

by weidgate51 / March 25, 2005 8:37 PM PST

I have an HP 735 Digital Camera. I use the batteries suggested for it, HMHB, and after taking 3 or 4 pictures they are dead.
I do use the regular view finder, turn it off in between pictures, don't use the LCD screen to check to see if pics are okay. I basically use every thing I know possible to sustain battery life and they just do not last.
Is there another setting to use so I can have better battery life? Thanks, Valerie

About a day on each set of batteries. So I carry a few sets with me and all is well. I also get to use the LCD and more.

My solution.
