Not yet having a camera, I'm only going by what the Ref manual says, but..... the 'battery type' menu option refers to Alkaline, Lithium and 'Coolpix NiMH'. I am assuming therefore that choosing the last of those will work regardless of the actually brand of NiMH battery.
I note that the Specifications in the Ref manual list 120 shots for alkaline batteries. This seems a little on the low side to me, when compared to (say) the L28 quoted at 280 shots?? Does the method of calculating such figures take account of motoring the lens in/out if the camera is turned off/on (say) every 2 or 3 shots?
