Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"I didn't reliable electricity to recharge it, but the battery lasts long enough so that if I am conscious of conserving it it will last many days (taking only pictures that I think will be good, and not ever tree that I see)."
_
"PROS:- superb video 1920x1080 60p- good stabilizer- good audio recording- good picture- touchscreen- weather sealed- very tiny camera- sexy and original glass bodyCONS:- difficult to handle due to its size and touchscreen- extremely fragile due to its glass body- battery compartment not so good underwater- fingerprints all over the body- easy to scratchTIPS:- use it carefully- don't use it underwater- keep it in a hard casemine got the screen broken, even inside a leather case."
_
"There are reports online that the battery door seal is not as robust as other brands."
_
"I decided to also purchase a waterproof pouch - because several other reviews did complain about the battery door being flimsy and a possible problematic issue regarding it's ability to resist water."
_
"That time, when I took it out of the case and used it snorkeling in shallow water, well, that's when the battery door failed and water got inside the camera."
_
"CONS:[-] Battery compartment is fragile and does not look well built; it will eventually break sooner or later."
_
"That time, when I took it out of the case and used it snorkeling in shallow water, well, that's when the battery door failed and water got inside the camera."
_
"- the microSD can be inserted in the wrong orientation - it should only fit one way for no confusion- battery compartment latch doesn't seem as secure as other waterproof cameras; if you're not careful you might easily slide it open."
_
"I would recommend an external battery charger."
_
"The battery is tiny, so it's easy to carry a spare."
_
"On the same token, while the video also looks great, regardless of battery power remaining or amount of memory remaining, the video is limited to 29 minutes."

"- Great for quick shooting - fast bootup and shutter- You can customize up to 4 quick shortcuts on the left side of the menu screen (such as movie recording, flash, iso, resolution)- Good for Beginners Dumb-proof Beginner Friendly - Photo creativity mode lets you scroll by going up down on the bright dark, warm cool, add picture effects like color isolation, toy pop camera, soft high key colors); if you don't know what ISO or aperture is, you'll love it."
_
"It has a terrific picture review zoom function (onscreen) where you can get a tantalizing fortaste of fun on the computer, with photo editing (which I love! )"
