Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Only after a few shots, the battery went dead."
_
"The ONLY negative is that, when making videos, the battery drains quickly (perhaps 1.5 hours)."
_
"My only complaint is that the battery life is not great, but I bought a couple spares and an external charger, so battery life is not a big deal."
_
"I tried a new battery hoping that was the problem but to no avail."
_
"It is a bit hard to open the battery slot area, but I believe that is the point for the waterproof benefit."
_
"Also, the battery died very quickly while I was out snorkeling, which was very disappointing, beyond belief."
_
"Takes good quality pictures and battery life is good"
_
"Anyhow, I'd highly recommend having a 2nd, back up battery for this camera and even a third charged battery if you'll be taking a lot of shots away on vacation."
_
"They have jumped in with it a few times and the waterproof seal on the battery compartment held up nicely."
_
"Battery life was great, but the video mode does tend to use up a lot of battery life."
_
"Nice to have the built in rechargeable battery."

Image

Image:
"This is a clever unit, but I was not satisfied with the image quality of my photos."

_
"Additionally, about 10% of my photo and movie files have ended up broken or corrupt before I even get them off the camera."
_
"It handles well (the floater works too), and can link with my iPhone wirelessly for photo backup - the caveat is that only one photo can be transferred at a time."
_

"Though I have a little complaint about photos fine quality , I thought the video clips were sharp and pretty good!"
_
"Took a little trial and error to upload....the key is to to hit VIEW PHOTOS instead of receive photos."
_
"Pro:Waterproof to a greater depth than I will ever goWifi (the reason I bought the XP70 over other waterproof cameras)Wifi to Smartphone easy to set up (for me anyway, tech savy)Small and light weightEasy to handle and use (buttons and menus)Appears to have good battery lifeOne touch video recording (nice)Shutter lag after pre focus shortQuick to focus in bright lightLCD screen is viewable in sunlight (slightly washout but better than most cheap point and shoots)Cons:Low quality photos (my biggest complaint) (reason for only 1 star)JPG compression (probably the reason for low quality photos)Very slow or no focus in very low light"
_
"I was disappointed to discover that the maximum number of photos you can transmit via the wifi is 30 at a time - I had planned on backing up my camera via wifi at the end of each day of a big trip, but that's not going to be possible with a cap of 30, plus you have to manually select them."
_
"This camera takes great quality video and photos in the water, at the beach, on planes, in pools, in the rain, and basically anywhere you want."
_
"It takes great photos and I use it a lot."
_
