Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"This was a good camera - loved it in fact - until I bumped it against a table as I turned to take a picture, and the battery compartment lid broke open."
_
"The most annoying problem that I have every time that I use this camera is that the battery compartment on the bottom of the camera is one of those sliding latches."
_
"I notice several of these reviews mention bad battery life; this has GOT to be an error."
_
"The only negative reports I saw on other reviews of this camera was that it is a battery hog."
_
"And one particular, minor feature that I noticed (and liked)- the button that turns the LCD on and off is set lower in the plastic, so it's not easily bumped (thereby rendering your batteries dead, hours later)."
_
"Easy battery, camera strap, and usb driver installation."
_
"the battery like is extermly good, but you will still want to get some recargeable battery's."
_
"The battery life is excellent and the pictures are really sharp and good looking for 2MP."
_
"The D-380 had the best battery life in that recent Consumer's Rpts review, and I'm amazed at how long a set lasts."

Image

Image:
"I'm getting a pattern on my images that looks a little like what one sees with video cameras in dark rooms, the images are slightly blurry, the images have inconsistent tones with patches of pink - purple - blue - black - etc."
_
"The optical zoom works acceptably, though the image quality does degrade."
_
"Unfortunately, this degrades the image by an equivalent percentage of pixels."
_
"If you want professional quality images then look elsewhere, but for the general user this is a great purchase."
_
"It's not too bulky, around 5 wide and sub 7 ounces in weight, with a sliding lens protector to make transportation a breeze, a wrist strap, 8MB Smart Media memory card (although it takes upto 128MB) as well as 1MB onboard memory, USB connector, built in flash and a 1.5 digital viewfinder at the back for live preview or viewing of your snapped images...a good size for a small camera."
_
"The pic quality is good."
_
"The setting and buttons are really easy to use and the photo software is great for quick downloads to the computer."
_
"There are various image manipulation options such as switching to black and whire sepia tones built into the camera as well and an option to record video footage as Quicktime images which is great as well."

Photo

Photo:

"The software makes it really easy to export and inport photos and movies."
_
"With the 8 meg card included with the camera, I can take 30 photos that look really good."
_
"It is a great camera for a beginner, easy to use and takes great photos!"

_
"If there is a name to define this camera would be La Cachimbona which in salvadorean means The Good one because fill all my requirements that i needed to go on vacation, Good Photos, Good Price and super portable."

"Sure there's no optical zoom, but this camera is a good value, and I recommend it for anyone."
