You are bound to have been in a situation at some time in your life when you are taking pictures of an important event like a birthday, graduation, etc., and your battery life dies after only a few hours. It’s so frustrating, but you don’t just have to live with it or live with carrying 30 packets of batteries. Instead, start off with a digital camera that is known for a long battery life. Here is our list of top digital cameras' battery life recommendations.
The Canon Digital Rebel XSi is a good camera to begin with. It takes excellent pictures and comes with a 12.2 megapixel CMOS sensor. It features a 3.0 LCD screen and several shooting modes. But the battery life on it seems to last all day.
People have reported taking over 500 shots on one charge with some juice still left when they were done. And, the battery is rechargeable, and you can recharge it in your vehicle if you need to.
Another Canon known for its battery life is the Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS. This point and shoot camera comes with a 8.3 megapixel resolution, and it can capture great pictures in nearly any type of lighting. Plus, it’s really inexpensive at less than $300, and it is packed with shooting modes and other features.
The battery life on this one is also quite amazing. You can actually shoot over 400 pictures before you need to charge the camera. Or, if you don’t use it that often, it will last for months without you needing to change the batteries. You should, however, invest in rechargeable batteries for this model.
