Battery life varies depending on the battery type, the
manufacturer, and other factors.
Checking the Battery
When your battery power is almost out, the low
battery icon appears on the status display panel. The
icon flashes when your battery power is completely out.
You need to recharge or replace the batteries or use the
optional universal AC adapter when you see the low battery
icon. Although you may be able to use the camera with low
batteries, it needs full battery power to operate reliably.
Several factors can affect battery life, including the
surrounding temperature and the type of batteries you use.
Low temperatures—especially below 50 °F (10 °C)—drain
batteries faster. See page 6 for battery use instructions.
