Chapter 1: Getting Started
Digital cameras use batteries at a much faster rate than
film cameras. Battery life in digital cameras can be
measured in hours and minutes of use rather than the
years more typical of film cameras. Battery life may also
vary dramatically from one user to another, depending on
what modes the camera is being used in most frequently.
