    If the "own type of batteries" has a significant advantage, e.g. much longer battery life or something, then its worth to have it. If not, the ubiquitous AAs are always the best.

    Normall AA is Nickel Metal Hydride or Alkaline cell inside, the "own type of battery" is mostly Lithium cell inside. Technically speaking, Lithium is much better than NiMH or Alkaline, can last longer.

    wow.. i would have thought there would be more people who would vote for normal batteries.. how bout in the long run? which one would have longer batt life say after a few years? The cost of changing normal batts would be cheaper wouldn't it?

    Normal battery is better as it is lithium and last longer. AA, AAA batteries have the problem of leakage. One of my friend has to throw away his d-cam when that happened to him.

    One advantage of using AA is that when you are outing shooting,the battery went flat you could just buy some without loosing any photo opportunity.
