Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"My friends can't believe this is a point and shot camera when they see my pictures (specially daylight ones).There are two problems why is put 4 instead of 5 stars:1) Included battery has very low capacity, this is made for the suer to buy the high capacity battery they have on catalog."
_
"I did buy an extra battery to solve this problem."
_
"Takes fantastic pictures and battery life is excellent."

_
"I am very happy with this camera, except for the included battery."

Size

Size:
"The only negative for me would be the size."

Zoom

Zoom:
"There are actually four video modes which can be selected appropriately depending on film time although it still has the drawback of not being able to zoom while filming."

"bought this for my wife....she wanted a simple point and shoot that was ready to take pictures whenever, wherever....the intelligent auto feature is great...no thinking, just point and shoot and it takes a great shot.....it does have the ability to change iso, white balance, etc... when you are not in the i. a. mode...great camera, nice zoom."
