H03: Camera losing photos out of batteries

QUESTION: Will my camera lose the photographs taken if the batteries run out?

ANSWER: No. The photographs are stored on the memory card inside the computer. The memory card holds the photographs regardless of the battery power. However, low batteries can affect the memory card’s ability to do its job, so change the batteries as soon as you see that they are running low. Using rechargeable batteries is both environmentally and economically smart.
