Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"I am a photographer and was looking for something smaller and lighter than my big DSLR - and the wide angle is nice along with the manual exposure controls ive had it for a couple of months and the only problem Im having is that i cant find the battery meter."
_
"I've owned cameras 3x more expensive (Nikon 5400 and Sony DSC) that had awful shot to shot times and terrible battery life."
_
"Regarding the proprietary battery as compared with AA batteries, when you are out on safari in Africa living in a thatched hut or tent and your proprietary battery runs out of power, do you want to be running all over the jungle at night in a fruitless attempt to find a battery at a local sari-sari store while you hear lions and hei-enas roaring and sounding off all around you?"
_
"great pictures been using for a few yrs now small enought to take to events better pics than smart phones with 8 MPhowever the only bad is it can use up batterys quickly i recomend getting rechargables for it."
_
"Oh, I will it requires rechargable AA or digital camera AA- so plan on either buy a least two rechargable sets (to have one and one for back up) or lots of AAs bc it's pretty typically to most cameras on battery life."
_
"It is an overall good quality product than works well with regular AA batteries, is of good construct overall, and I did really like the wide angle capability."
_
"And as far as battery consumption, It ate though the batteries that came with it pretty fast but ive done heavy shooting on regular alkaline batteries and they seem to last and last."
_
"Its got very decent battery life from AA batteries."

_
"The truth is, the P50is a excellent camera, that is capable of taking really great pics."
_
"Being an avid Nikon user (D300) wanting a decent image producing camera, the P50 does not deliver."

Size

Size:
"Before I did, I was able to look at the pictures that transferred even though they were only in thumbnail size and I wasn't pleased with the picture quality."

_
"great pictures been using for a few yrs now small enought to take to events better pics than smart phones with 8 MPhowever the only bad is it can use up batterys quickly i recomend getting rechargables for it."

Zoom

Zoom:
"I wish it had a greater optical zoom, the only drawback I could find."
_
"Only feature that's not so great is the zoom but for $100 I can't complain."
_
"Some people complain that it does not have a long enough zoom, but long zooms can lead to very bad pictures when using P&S as you lose a lot of light AND when using long lens you must compensate with quicker shutter speeds- this can be tricky for most and generally leads to low quality images."
_
"I wish it had a greater optical zoom, the only drawback I could find."
_
"Too bad Nikon didn't continue this series by updating certain features like higher resolution & greater optical zoom & there is still a need for optical viewfinders in smaller point & shoot cameras."
_
"Only feature that's not so great is the zoom but for $100 I can't complain."
_
"I will just watch for great deal, but be sure I find a super zoom along with the higer MP."
_
"So, bottom line, I recommend gettting the best optics you can with the most optical zoom you can."
