Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"My only complaint is that you can't possibly tell when the battery is about to go out, due to the indicator's being all but useless."
_
"Even the battery does well, recharges quickly."
_
"To my complete amazement, the camera (including the battery and memory card) worked perfectly (after I let it dry for a day)."
_
"Built-in microphone and speaker allow you to capture and play back video clips of up to about 35 seconds in length(8) Can make copies of your pictures in-camera(9) Good battery life out of the CR-3V photo-lithium cellsCAVEATS:(1) No rechargeable battery included although your mileage may vary(2) Ships with only a 16MB memory card (easily fixed)(3) LCD somewhat smaller than other competitors, e. g., Nikon 2500 or Canon's S40(4) Doesn't support external flash or lens converters (a mildly major pain in my book but may not matter to everyone)(5) Automatic white balance may sometimes produce a bluish cast especially in bright light(6) Can use SD card or MMC card, but MMC card is noticeably slower(7) Somewhat high price?"
_
"Recommend getting a backup battery and upgrade the SD memory to at least 256Mb - expect this to add around $... to the overall price."
_
"It can be easy to miss and your battery can go out."

"I love everything about this camera EXCEPT the quality of the images."
_
"Canon S... (replace ... with model number) have a better LCD screen, slightly faster photo review scrolling, and slightly nicer overall build quality."
_
"The size and styling and the optical zoom are the main selling points, but the camera also has decent image quality and fast recycle times."
_
"I was able to wear on my belt and had it with me nearly all the time, which has been great on trips because I could snap a photo any time.2) There is not enough flash to reach beyond six feet or so, and no hot shoe to connect a bigger flash."
