    Canon S100 battery life?

    I have no problem getting two dives from my S90 - I turn off the camera until I have suitable subject matter and I have the camera flash turned down to 1/3 power, just to trigger the strobes. On vacation I have two batteries, charging one will the other is in use. I also swap out the memory...

    What spg do you use and do you recommend it?
