I went online and realized that the EasyShare has poor ratings for battery life. But 15 shots?! I'll be taking a trip to Ireland very soon and I'm a little concerned that I'll be unable to take advantage of my camera because I'll be at the store buying AA's every ten minutes. What type of batteries do you suggest?
Also, are there certain settings that use less battery power than others? I think I'm going to use the viewfinder more often. But what about the manual setting? Will that use less power than "smart"mode?
