I'm doing abit of traveling to Africa this summer and Asia early next year, and I'm finally thinking of replacing my rapidly aging Cybershot point and shoot. I don't have the money or knowledge for a DSLR, so bridge cameras seem a good compromise.
I found the Fujifilm S2950, which seems great but doesn't come with a rechargeable battery. Whats the battery life on these? My Mum bought a Pentax point and shoot and pretty soon was going through AAs like crazy. I'll also be going high altitude (i.e. pretty cold) whilst climbing Kili, not sure if that will make a difference (I know I'll have to keep them warm).
Any advice is more than welcome,
