When my wife has retired later this year we intend to hit the road big time. We are aiming to travel light (single hand luggage bag) so I want a compact rather than my DSLR. I also insist on AA batteries as cannot guarantee access to recharge options. Having trouble finding almost anything that isn't rechargeable batteries. Is there anything decent? Or will I have to buy an older second hand model?

    \$\begingroup\$ My opinion is that you will actually make your life much easier by not wrestling against the trend of rechargeable batteries. If you wind up somewhere with a dead battery, so be it. Consider bringing an additional rechargeable battery. I'd love to know where you plan on going where they sell AA batteries but don't have electrical outlets ;) \$\endgroup\$

Yes, there are still many compact cameras that use AA batteries.

Here is a camera search link that allows you to search only cameras with AA batteries: DP Review Camera Search (under "Physical" you can select AA batteries)

All these cameras use AA batteries
