Hauled out my venerable K-x recently for the first time in a long time and shot a few frames.

Within a very short time- minutes actually-, the display showed a pattern of stripes, the batt indicator was down to zilch and the camera was unresponsive- I couldn't even shut it off. Tried with another set of known good, freshly charged NIMH's.
What brand/model of NiMHs do you use and how old are they?
Which brand/model of charger do you use and at which current does he charge the cells?

not quite the case:
The K-r had a few extras: Better AF, larger display, more frames per second:
Pentax K-r vs. Pentax K-x vs. Pentax K-30 - Pentax Camera Comparison -
And it could take the D-LI109 plus AA's.
Thanks to your comment a (white) K-R is now on its way to me I am already having tons of fun with my (also white) K-X and its image quality, curious if the improvements in the K-R will work even better for me!
