Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"So now, the camera beeps and the indicator lights near the viewfinder constantly blink which if I read the manual correctly indicate some kind of battery problem (which it isn't)."
_
"The only problem is we got about 24 pictures out of a set of batteries and they were done."
_
"I see many complaints have been made that this camera eats batteries."
_
"It seems like the problem is that there is a huge drain on the battery on each shot taken because if you let the camera rest for a while, the batteries will eventually allow it to take another shot (after you turn the camera off, of course).I bought this camera based on Amazon reviews, which were very helpful."
_
"Of course, a big complaint is the batteries."
_
"It's terrible, and it uses up batteries within 20-30 pictures, even worse if you are using the flash consistently."
_
"Instead get one of the Lithium CR-V3 batteries which give excellent picture taking volume in this camera."
_
"The camera takes nice pictures but even with rechargeable batteries, they have to be replaced after about 20-25 pictures, maybe more depending on how often you open and close the camera."
_
"It did use alot of batteries, but Rechargeable CR-V3 Li-ion batteries would make a great difference."
_
"I was using high mAh NIMH rechargeable batteries and had no complaint about battery life at all, just missed a lot of shots because the thing wasn't ready or because of the shutter lag."

Photo

Photo:
"It's hard to tell whether photos are sharply focused until they've been transferred to the computer, which has been frustrating for us and the reason I didn't give this camera another star or two...All in all, though, I'd recommend the D-580 to anyone looking for a first digital camera or even just a simple-to-use point-and-shoot camera without a lot of bells and whistles."
_
"*Lens is prone to spots, and boy will those ruin some great photos."
_
"The 4MP offer surprising clarity and beautiful, bright photos."
_
"The reason I am upgrading at this point is that I am more into photography as art in addition to wanting the great photos this camera can offer."
_
"Family members have other more expensive digital cameras, but mine (around $250 at the time) takes the best photos, in my opinion."
_
"Sometimes there's red-eye with flash photos which is normal, and I can easily take care of with Picasa."

_
"For the price, this is a great buy for a digital camera."

Quality

Quality:
"Picture quality was great with the 580, but hard to get what you shoot because of the l o n g shutter lag and the l o n g start up time, I really grew to HATE the cute little camera for those two reasons."
_
"For starters, if you select anything less than the highest quality image-format, you'll find that the pictures are totally unacceptable."
_
"The speed of the camera seemed just as slow as my 2.1 - and the quality was not as good for some of my shots."
_
"It is a nice camera, easy to use, picture quality is OK (my daughter's Kodak 6340 and my Nikon 5700 pictures are much sharper), good camera for beginners."
_
"The picture quality is excellent, it's really easy to use, and has enough options for a beginner without going overboard."
_
"Picture quality was great with the 580, but hard to get what you shoot because of the l o n g shutter lag and the l o n g start up time, I really grew to HATE the cute little camera for those two reasons."
_
"Picture quality is consistently great with Olympus's new image processor (TruePic Turbo), and it has enough settings to fiddle with to keep a person amused for hours."
_
"Video quality is good."

Speed

Speed:
"The only downside is it's slow to focus in low light."
_
"Third, and this was the worst, the shutter speed was terrible."
_
"The speed of the camera seemed just as slow as my 2.1 - and the quality was not as good for some of my shots."
_
"It's a great family camera (aside from being slow to capture, which people trying to photograph small children may find very frustrating) and performs well in a variety of lighting situations."
_
"The down loads to my pc are fast and easy too."
_
"It whites out almost everyone I took a picture of at even a moderately close range, and when it was NOT used, the slow shutter speed made a clear picture when the camera was hand-held almost impossible."
_
"I'm not high tech when it comes to cameras - but this one just didn't seem to have the right speed or adequate lighting."
