Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"battery isn't great but it has stayed consistent and hasn't showed signs of memory or old battery wearing out."
_
"Another downside is the battery does not last for that long, although I have never had it run out of battery after only a day of usage, but usually if I don't charge the battey for a week, it does not have much battery left (but that might be becaue I use it a lot).So I deffinatly recommend this camera."
_
"Battery cover: I didn't find the door flimsy at all.4."
_
"Because it's on when you don't know it, you're wasting more battery life... thus problem 1 surfaces again."
_
"It's such a hassle to charge the battery."
_
"About its only significant limitations for me are its fairly limited low light capability, short battery life and weak flash output."
_
"Buy a second battery and you'll be more than good, but it's just something to keep in mind."
_
"THe video feature its ok even though you cant change the zoom while making the video, but the design doesnt suit well this feature since the audio-in is in the exact same place where you are suppossed to hold the camera...so most of my videos dont have audio since i was blocking the audio entrace...Its small and portable, and i could fit it in any pocket, so thats good, but its so small that the battery lasts only aorund 90 min...that's what it says, but it keep going down like 5times faster than a regular min, so it only does last like 30 min."
_
"Battery life is exceptionally good and you should get close to 100 pictures with a full charge of the standard battery supplied."
_
"The price is also perfect for a camera this small and i do not complain about the battery life."
_
"battery is very decent compare to my Pentax5."

Flash

Flash:
"About its only significant limitations for me are its fairly limited low light capability, short battery life and weak flash output."
_
"This is related to the weak flash."
_
"That's true, however, personally, at this price, I would expect the picture quality is on par or at least come close to my 2 years old S400.PRO- Super slim, super stylish and attractive- Body feels sturdy and well build- 2.5 large LCD screen- Very fast start timeCONS- Difficult to hold steadily- Weak flash- Weak battery life (Additional battery pack cost $50)- Use MS Duo Duo Pro (Which costs approx 50% more than SD with similar speed)- Pictures taken indoor are noisy and grainy- Prone to red eye, but prone to hand shake when using red eye reduction- Lens and LCD screen are prone to fingerprintsAfter playing with the T7 and the comparison tests with my old S400, it is very clear to me that T7 isn't a camera that worth its price."
_
"The flash is so weak that it hardly reach over 6 ft."
_
"Flash doesn't carry but 5ft which is a problem because though the camera has a good quality Carl Zeiss lens, it is very small and the max apertures are not great which means in practice that the flash cuts in all the time when on auto and if it doesn't and its not bright sunshine, then you get camera shake."
_
"The flash is great for taking pictures, even in complete darkness they come out like it was daylight."
_
"The flash is very small and does a decent job at very short range but should not be relied on for taking group pictures in low light conditions."
_
"All my tests were done in the auto setting with only changes in flash, because the auto wb are already good."
_
"If you are using this camera in low light conditions indoor, try using auto flash, as and it will have no brownish tinge, i have tested this many times and can confirm this, and when taking images in a fully lit area, use SLOW SYNCRO FLASH, this flash makes the color so accurate that you can't possibly see any oragne tinge."

"Indoor ImagesMany people complain about indoor images and I must admit i at first when purchasd this camera was very dissappointed at the orange brownish tinge from this camera, but i also discovered something new after a few days of owning this digital camera."
_
"The most frustrating part is how misleading the LCD is (only nice feature) because the pics looked great on it -until you upload them on to your computer."
_
"Overall I really like the portability, image quality and ease of use - I'd buy one again."
_
"OutdoorOutdoor images turn great in auto mode, no really need to set anything unless you want to take landscapes, they have settings for those already."
_
"the images on it are amazingly good, and much better than my past cameras that i have been using, from panasonic and nikon."
_
"this camera is very good and produces high qualty images when used right."

_
"I can say I've probably sold at least a dozen of these to people that fell in love with the size of the camera and the quality of photos it takes."
_
"I can say that we have many photos of our kids (and really good ones, too) that we would never had gotten if my wife didn't regularly carry this camera in her purse and diaper bag!"

Size

Size:
"The LCD has a very good size and bright however I think that is the problem in leaving the battery empty."
_
"Flash doesn't carry but 5ft which is a problem because though the camera has a good quality Carl Zeiss lens, it is very small and the max apertures are not great which means in practice that the flash cuts in all the time when on auto and if it doesn't and its not bright sunshine, then you get camera shake."
_
"As far as size, that is the biggest plus to it's advantage."
_
"I can say I've probably sold at least a dozen of these to people that fell in love with the size of the camera and the quality of photos it takes."
_
"I bought this camera like 7 months ago since it was so small and i liked the design....but the pictures it takes suck, specially in the night time or with flash, you can barely see what you are photographing."
_
"THe video feature its ok even though you cant change the zoom while making the video, but the design doesnt suit well this feature since the audio-in is in the exact same place where you are suppossed to hold the camera...so most of my videos dont have audio since i was blocking the audio entrace...Its small and portable, and i could fit it in any pocket, so thats good, but its so small that the battery lasts only aorund 90 min...that's what it says, but it keep going down like 5times faster than a regular min, so it only does last like 30 min."
