Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"I've owned my RE camera for almost a year, I've used it a lot and am always disappointed by the same issue... battery life."
_
"The battery is the weakest I have ever seen."
_
"The miserable battery life of this camera makes it unusable without a near constant charge, and that makes it pointless."
_
"Battery life is not the greatest, but look at the camera size."
_
"If you are like me and don't enjoy having your phone battery depleted, just make sure the bluetooth on your phone is off and that the RE camera is disconnected from the app -- which will save you a TON of battery life!"
_
"Battery life is not great but easy functions."
_
"Battery life was great!"
_
"I do agree that with such a great time lapse feature, extending the battery life for the RE would be an added bonus!"
_
"Pros:-Amazing battery life."
_
"It feels great in the hand and I've used it when I need to take a quick pic (when taking things apart and need to remember where they go, it's perfect).While many seem to be complaining about the battery, I've been impressed actually."

Image:
"The video quality and image stabilization is not nearly as good as my Panasonic DMC ZS25 Compact camera."
_
"PROS:-Can fit your pocket-Wide-angle lens-Waterproof-Easy to useCONS:-Not so good image video quality-Some app issuesPair one of these with some mid-range smartphones and you'll get the best camera experience at half the cost of a flagship."
_
"Those negative reviews that cite poor image quality are mistaken...to a degree."
_
"Brilliant idea, but unfortunately very poor image quality."
_
"It's not easy to use as there is no view finder so you're not really sure what you're shooting and it's very far away and you have to do manipulation on the photo to get a good print before you can post or use the picture."
_
"If I want professional pictures taken, I will pay someone, but this is great for just quick pics and videos."
_
"I'm a prize winning amateur photog, and I'm very satisfied with the image quality of it's output."
_
"I love that so much can be captured in a single photo frame."
_
"Takes a decent pic and video for such a simple product."

Light

Light:
"You can expect this camera to perform terribly in low light and capture extremely shaky images."
_
"Others reviews had the con listed of the camera not being good in low light, and this is definitely true."
_
"Good for outdoor things, terrible for anything that has remotely less than perfect light."
_
"I saw other travelers with big heavy fancy cameras around their necks; I enjoyed the small light Re hanging around my neck or my wrist (I purchased the lanyard) that was not cumbersome at all."
_
"We were at the top of the Empire State Building and I rested the camera on the metal crossings and got some great pictures of the NYC lights from this little guy!"
_

Photo

Photo:
"kept overheating and keeps turning on in your pocket lost over 100 photos error message"
_
"As mentioned before, night time photos are not the greatest, but I've still gotten some really good ones besides the fact."
_
"After impressing my friends with the ability to pull the camera out of my pocket and take quick photos, I got a nasty surprise, I unfortunately discovered after swimming with it for a few minutes, that two of the tiniest, almost invisible, stress cracks had formed at the base."
_
"I'm guessing those people complaining of blurry photos were using the camera in low light where the camera does not perform (see cons below).The cons:1) Battery life leaves a little to be desired."
_
"It's an good illustration of what most people are missing with their smartphone photos--wide angle."
_
"Works well enough, but photos can be grainy since you can't specifically focus the camera or change the scoping."
_
"Photos are good quality, but you have to know when to turn the wide-angle feature on off."
_
"The camera takes some amazing photos and videos and the angles are wide."
_
"Free smartphone App is great for: o Reviewing and managing photos videos, checking settings, check remaining pics count video time."
_
"It takes very clear underwater wet photos and has amazing 1080 quality videos."

Quality

Quality:
"The video quality and image stabilization is not nearly as good as my Panasonic DMC ZS25 Compact camera."
_
"High MSRP$... should be in $100 to $125 range (gifted via Best Buy).Anyone who says the capture quality is not good must be have the shakes or is running around in the dark with it."
_
"Those negative reviews that cite poor image quality are mistaken...to a degree."
_
"Brilliant idea, but unfortunately very poor image quality."
_
"The app works great controlling the RE and the picture, video qualities are great."
_
"The video and sound quality are really good (hopefully they'll eventually make one with a zoom function though), so the videos turn out nice."
_
"Picture quality is okay at best, you will get lots of shaky video and blurry pictures unless you really focus on taking pictures properly and find something to steady your shots on against."
_
"The pictures are great quality, and you get so much rich background in."
_
"The picture and video quality is good enough for your run-of-the-mill stuff, but not a Go-Pro substitute."
