well purely battery is based on mAh, however the battery chemistry such as li-ion, li-poly, nicd, nimh will govern memory effects and voltage output at different temperatures and stages of discharge.
however- the battery life will be governed by the camera. one camera that uses AA batteries and another that's designed for proprietary batteries will have different power requirements.
lcd screen size, flash output, and time used in standby. i'm guessing that if the camera in question is designed to run on AA, its probably a bit large, so it might have some hardcore optic zoom or a large screen. try rechargeable NiMH with the highest rating you can find and get a quality charger and you wont regret it.
i dont buy anything other than rechargeable batteries, i get a few more each year and all my AA/AAA stuff runs on rechargables... it's great.
PS- as far as disposables go... i've got a 5LED flashlight that runs on 2 lithium batteries that is way brighter than a 9LED light that runs on 3AAAs. unfortunately, lithium disposable batteries are great, but not many things can use them.
