Not knocking FUJI or anything - but I would not concern myself with
what batteries it takes. Your best bet is to get a set of
rechargeable batteries and a $14 charger. You'll never buy batteries
for your camera. In the long run this will save you a TON, believe
me, because these cameras can eat batteries up like candy, depending
on how you use them.

And oh, forget and leave your camera hooked up to your computer -
suck, there go the batteries. I'd say I run through the batteries
2-4/month, sometimes more. You do the math, you recoup your purchase
of the rechargeables and charger pretty quick.

Meanwhile, if you have an emergency and your batteries are charging
and you need the camera, just have some extra plain ones on hand.

Even better, get 2 sets of recharges and you'll always have a set
ready to go.

My camera takes 4 batteries too, so the price can really add up.
