Why do the batteries in my camera do not last ?

If one battery has a lower voltage than the others then it is faulty and will pull the others down. Replace it.
To test for this, when the batteries are discharged measure the indivual batteries voltage with a voltmeter. Only place a voltmeter across a battery instantly and never use an ampmeter.
As rechargeable batteries self discharge they must be charged before putting them into storage. If left in a charger that is turned off the batteries will discharge through the charger.
