Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Downside: The battery life is so-so."
_
"The box includes the USB cable, video cables to output to a TV set and a rechargeable battery with its respective charger (which at first I thought was not the best option as I would like to carry extra batteries in case the one included runs out, battery life though, has proven to be great and have not had any problems with running out of battery while taking pictures or recording video)I cannot comment on the software included as it has always been easier for me to use the windows default application to copy the contents of the memory card directly to my external HD."
_
"Battery is good."
_
"Over all for 100 dollars this was a fantastic deal, the shots come out nice, the colors rich, the video looks great, shoots well in higher iso, comes with a charger battery don't have to buy AA's also a bonus! "
_
"It uses a rechargeable battery - an absolute must in my opinion - that charges quickly and gets decent battery life."
_

_
"The different modes they offer seem to work fine, I'm not much of a Point and shoot user I've always shot SLR and DSLR's but had to sell my gear last year so to switch to being limited on my settings can be a bit annoying for me I keep picking it up wanting to change my shutter spd and Fstop but not being able to control that is a bit of a bummer, getting used to auto focus is odd too I miss manual."
_
"Even after trying all the different settings, the picture quality was horrible."
_
"The tones were very orange and it was the worst camera to use in night or indoor settings."

"Easy to figure out camera settings too."

"Grainy photos at any ISO setting, even with the flash and in good lighting."
