Digital cameras are now becoming more and more popular. Their batteries are always rechargeable. But we know that there are lives for all the rechargeable batteries. Take some tips in mind will help you largely extend your camera battery life.
1. Don’t push the shutter button half-way down until you’re ready to shoot. Pushing the shutter button (constantly resetting and refocusing) will drain battery life.
2. Turn off the continuous focus. Again, constantly using motors and electronics to ready your shot drastically minimizes battery life.
3. Dim the brightness on your LCD screen. A dimmer display extends battery life by consuming less power to light the screen. This might make the display harder to see, but usually only in direct sunlight.
4. Minimize the picture preview to the least amount of time possible—usually one second. This uses less LCD screen time, thus less power.
5. Use the flash only when necessary. Your product’s “auto flash” option should take care of this, but make sure your flash isn’t going off in broad daylight.
6. This one is basic, but charge your battery often. Lithium ion batteries, which most image capturing devices use, don’t have “battery memory” like older alkalines. In fact, lithium ions work better and last longer if charged completely and regularly.
7. When shooting in cold temperatures, keep your device warm—between your body and coat. Battery life drops drastically in cold weather.
Finally, when you store your image capturing device for a week or longer, take the battery out to avoid trickle discharge.
Following these Top eight steps, they will help extend your compact digital camera’s battery life. You can also do something to protect the ecological environment.
