Batteries that do not hold a charge make a camera unusable. Several options may help solve the problem.
My Kodak digital camera V530 gets only 15 shots before the battery goes dead. The camera takes excellent pictures, but has no battery life. Any ideas?
In this excerpt from Answercast #29, I look at a camera with a battery that won't hold a charge.
Unfortunately, only one – dead battery, bad battery.
A quick check shows that this camera does have a replaceable lithium ion battery. The very first thing I would do would be to replace that battery and see if that makes the problem go away.
Now unfortunately, on any specific camera, that could mean any number of different things. I don't have a specific suggestion for things to look at in the camera. It would be worthwhile spending a few minutes in the user's manual and see if they give you any tips for battery life there.
I agree. 15 shots is horrible. It's worse than horrible; it's unacceptable.
So, I would begin by looking to see if there's some battery saving tips and tricks. But this is so bad that I think you've (hopefully) got a battery problem that will get resolved when you replace the battery.
If not, it could, in fact, boil down to a problem with the camera
