Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Battery life good but not great with rechargeable NIMHs."
_
"It eats batteries, this is the only problem issue that I have had with this camera."
_
"Color in general is not as good as a Kodak camera, but the features, battery power, flash, and of course HD make this an obvious camera choice for its class."
_
"The problem, it will only last about 15 minutes on its battery when using video."
_
"A word on battery consumption: a few reviews have lodged complaints that the batteries do not last long."
_
"- Battery life is amazing!"
_
"( I actually prefer a proprietary battery such as the Panasonic uses; lighter, longer lasting, quicker charge, more compact charger, easier to load 1 battery instead of 4, etc."
_
"If you are using regular batteries then they drain pretty fast if you use the video feature or the flash."
_
"I would recommend stocking up on batteries cuz this thing is a hog."
_
"Other cameras I have looked at where thepanasonic fz28 (excellent minus color is too bland and outputs too much barrel distortion for my taste and also the proprietary battery system stinks)canon sx10 is (excellent natural picture taking camera with very not-so-sharp images but the chromatic aberration leaves me thinking why it costs so much."

Price

Price:
"It has dual stabilization, a nice zoom length (which is hard to find in affordable digital cameras) and a nice mp of 10.What is the use of having all of these functions if your pictures are coming out overexposed, or blurred?"
_
"I am giving it a 5 star rating because if you payed for this at this price range, it is a dead on deal."
_
"I generally agree with everything the first reviewer said about the camera, although it doesn't feel cheap or flimsy to me."
_
"There is a nice histogram and exposure meter that lets you know how the exposure will turn out (although in my camera, the middle of the meter setting was a bit too light).The black plastic body feels a bit cheap and flimsy."
_
"If you're looking for a quality 10MP camera for a good price look no further."
_
"The amazing feature list for the price was the attraction."
_
"It has dual stabilization, a nice zoom length (which is hard to find in affordable digital cameras) and a nice mp of 10.What is the use of having all of these functions if your pictures are coming out overexposed, or blurred?"
_
"For the money it is quite unbelievable capability-wise, and the more you tweak it, the better it gets, at least that is how it has worked for me and I do not regret buying it one iota!"
_
"It was well worth the money..."

Setting

Setting:
"lots of settings :) Only problem is if the batter dies, the camera lens wont close until you put more batteries in it."
_
"There is very little literature about it, so it is hard to find many of the settings without just playing."
_
"I also, as others, do not recommend using the Auto setting at all but especially the Program mode is where I have gotten my best results especially turning down the exposure quite a bit for outside photos."
_
"- Pop up flash gives the user good optionsCons:- No manual settings: If you were hoping for manual, this is not for you."
_
"Also note: It is worth skimming through the manual to learn how to use all the fun features, functions, and proper settings per location lighting..."
_
"It takes real nice pictures once you get in on the right setting."
_
"I do highly recommend printing the manual--pages 70-93 or so for sure and reviewing them and I highly recommend playing with the various settings as it will help you get the most of your camera."
_
"I was a little dissappointed at first (for about an hour) when I first started taking pictures but after I spent that first evening reading the manual and playing with the various settings (about 1.5 hours) I am now in love with it."

Video

Video:
"The problem, it will only last about 15 minutes on its battery when using video."
_
"This problem is usually noticeable during framing or movie mode."
_
"In the field, this quickly gets annoying, especially when similar video closeups don't require the same adjustments."
_
"The HD video looks really good, but one caveat."
_
"HD video mode (1280 x 720 videos, also does regular 640 x 480 and 320 x 240 videos).Although this camera does do optical zooming during video recording, there are some downsides to this feature."
_
"The digital image stabilization works well at low zoom, but not as well at high zoom during video recording as it does for still photos (the digital image stabilization works better in stronger light than room lighting, and so this is probably related to the low light focusing problems at high zoom).At 1280 x 720 resolution, each continuous video recording can only last for about 15 minutes (takes up 848MB-884MB with the MP4 compression).As for the rest of the camera:The digital image stabilization works very well for still photos."
_
"I am able to make great videos with it."
_
"Can last me a full day on 4 charged AA's- Video function can create great movies."
_
"Macro mode is easy to use, and movie mode does work as advertised."
_
"If you are using regular batteries then they drain pretty fast if you use the video feature or the flash."

_
"The focusing in room lighting at maximum zoom is not very accurate."
_
"The zoom was working perfectly than my last malfunctioning camera I had 2 years ago."
_

_
"I love the clear crisp pictures it takes, and the zoom is amazing!"
_
"The 15x zoom is nice; unless you're using a tripod, more zoom than that would be difficult to use."
