I would like to purchase some rechargeable AA batteries for my camera. I have seen the eneloop batteries and I was wondering if that is the best way to go?

I'd say just buy the normal energizer and whatnot. They may be a bit more expensive, but they've also spent billions on R&D of every product.

Thomas Distributing has been my favorite source for rechargeable batteries, but admittedly that was before they became widely available.

Big fan of eneloop batteries here. They're always ready to go when needed. However, I have NOT been a fan of them in flashes. They seem to take a little longer to recycle.
I get them in bulk form from battery station.

I like my eneloop batteries for most items around my home except for high drain devices like cameras / flashes. They don't seem to work out as well. But for tv remotes, wii remotes, toys, etc they work well and they don't self discharge quickly in the drawer. Duracell also makes a similar item and calls them pre-charged rechargeables.

I am absolutely impressed with the Eneloops that I have in my Canon S3. I bought them when I bought the camera last year, so I don't know how many pictures other brands would get me, but I was able to fill up my 2GB memory card, delete some pictures, and continue taking more..

oh and for the record if anyone has an hhgregg near them that is the cheapest place I have found to purchase eneloop batteries.
