      The F-Stop for cameras is the aperture that allows light in to the lens.  There is a range of f-stops that go from f-1.4 all the way to f-16.  The smaller the number the larger the opening of the aperture... the larger the opening the more light... if you can manually control the F-stop then you can use more light in situations where you would normally use a flash... this would save batter life.

        Hey, thanks for your response, davenmidtown.  I don't think I can control the F-stop...it seems automatic, so I'll have to read my instruction book.  I don't use the flash a lot, but I do perform editing on-camera a lot and I'm sure that is some of the down battery use.  Appreciate your help!  Someone told me before to freeze batteries to make them last longer, but I don't accept that. ?

    I also use the viewfinder rather then the screen... it saves a great deal of batter life.
