For some people, AA batteries are the ideal power source, readily available in any shop no matter where you are in the world. You can also invest in high power rechargeable Ni-MH batteries or Lithium batteries for extended battery life and additional shots. Digital cameras powered by AA batteries are becoming more and more difficult to find new, but here we round up the highest-scoring AA powered digital cameras available and reviewed by ePHOTOzine.

9. Nikon Coolpix S30 - Waterproof  

Nikon Coolpix S30

"The Nikon Coolpix S30 is a waterproof camera that is easy to use and designed to survive being dropped and generally treated in a less than ideal way. This makes it ideal for families or those with small children, especially as its design makes it very easy to use."

Following models switched to a lithium-ion battery instead of AA, making this one of very few waterproof cameras to use AA batteries.
