Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Battery life disappointing; especially since I purchased the Olympus-brand extras."
_
"Picture-quality OK, but I just had to give it away; too inconvenient having the batteries crap out as quickly as they did."
_
"I returned that camera and on June 10 ordered another one just like it, seemed like it could have been a super small camera....the first day the camera functioned great, when the battery went dead and was recharged and reinserted the zoom nose when in and out two times, the red button flashed four time and it beeped four time and shut off."
_
"You only get to take about 45 to 50 pictures before the battery goes dead."
_
"The friend tried another battery and it would not work either, so the problem had to be in the camera."
_
"Reasonably quick, great features, (any smaller and i would wonder what was wrong with me,) excellent physical quality, VERY decent pix-sometimes great, pretty ok battery life, nice, stable zoom, and so on...IMO, hard to beat for the money."

Flash:
