"570 IS Battery Life problems"1.0 starson by canonpoweruser
Pros: Image stabliser, large screen,
Cons: Battery life (lasting only 5 to 20 shots ! !!!! )
Summary: Although I have been a strong advocate of Canon camera, this camera has not lived up to expectations on one acccount.. Battery life ! .. With fully charged battery, it can simply show the low battery sign after a few shots.
I have had low battery signs with a new Energizer Alkaline(many brands also tried)and Chamolein 2300Mah full charge. After shooting about 2 to 20 pics .. some with the flas the low battery comes right on.. very exasperating !
The problem apparently is not isolated as many 570 users seem to have the similar issues http://www.digitalcamera-hq.com/digital-cameras/canon-powershot-a570is_question.html?qid=15701
