$50 for a battery charger seems over priced. You can buy 16 AA Eneloop's for that much and the Eneloop charger. I'd only see something like that being useful if you shoot 30-40 hours a week.

I'd just suggest charging using the stock Sanyo/Eneloop charger that comes with the 4 pack. I know that 4 AA's take about 6 hours to fully charge after being fully used with that charger so in 12 hours with two Sanyo/Eneloop chargers and two outlets you can charge 16 batteries no problem.

So my Fuji x10 keeps giving me a "Focus Error"

Everything I can find online says either "turn it off and one" (done that lots of times) and take it to a repair shop. Any other ideas? I don't think it will be worth it for me to take it to a repair shop....

EDIT:
Well, I tried the hit it hard approach and it seems to be working for the first few on and off cycles....

haha, I would not dare to wait that long for my batteries to charge.

 

if you think that is expensive, look up RC car battery chargers...I got a 4 battery charger that costs $100 and that is on the cheap side.

6 hours isn't that bad considering how long Eneloop's hold a charge for. If you don't push them that hard you can easily get 4-6 hours+ of shooting with a set of 4 in a Speedlite.

I tend to push my flash's though and shoot at 1/2 to full power and one set will still last a whole photo session (normally 2 hours of shooting) which is really good for AA's.

Now if I were shooting everyday or using say 3 or more speedlights at a time than one of those chargers would be a wise investment.

It works quite well apart from the autofocus being a little violent and having to press the shutter button a little harder than my D5100. I've noticed there's a scratch on the mirror too and it's a little dirty but that's what you can expect from an SLR that's a minimum of 13 years old. I'm not going to bother trying to clean it, experience has taught me that the cleaning of delicate components usually ends in me either damaging them, them being dirtier than when I started cleaning, or in the case of my D5100, both.

For recharging my AAs, I use a Maha MH-C801D. ~$69 on Amazon, charges 8 at once (individual circuits), does a full rapid charge in 1 hour (but I use the 2 hour setting that's available) and has a reconditioning setting that will drain the set and recharge them. Works awesome with my Eneloops.

Well, I tried the hit it hard approach and it seems to be working for the first few on and off cycles....

So I guess this wasn't a fluke. It is doing it again.

It give me a "Focus Error" and the focus doesn't work at all (manual or auto) sometimes and others it will try to focus but can't do anything but very close macro.

Anyone know how much it typically costs to get a camera repaired? Should I try to take it apart myself?
