In 2006 I bought a Nikon Coolpix 8800 and am still very pleased with it. BUT the battery now only lasts a very short while and has probably had it. Snag is, I can't buy one (that works) anywhere. Nikon have discontinued them and the only "pattern" one I could find was dead on arrival. Is my camera just so much scrap after only a few hundred pictures? Is this the norm for Nikon? If it is I shan't buy another...
