Do you guys have habit of removing batteries in those AA battery cam when the cam is not in use? Or you leave it in till the next photoshoot if you use your camera like every few days?
How about the storage card too? Do you all take out and use card reader to transfer the files or install the program provided with the cam and use usb to download.
Why I am asking because I am using canon S5IS and it's a AA batteries operated cam with card slot in the same place as the batteries. So whenever I want to transfer photo and also when I do not use the cam, I like to take them out. So the frequency of opening and closing of the battery/SD card compartment cover is a lot. Will one day the cover breaks due to stress. Or am I worrying too much.
Could you could please guide me on good practice? Thanks.
