Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"service guy who showed it to me mentioned that the only thing he found fault with is the battery cover, which did not seem too secure."
_
"Never had any of the appearantly common battery issues until early 2010 when the Alkaline batteries would go dead for no reason while the camera was off and put away."
_
"This camera works as intended, the battery life is not great when taking videos, and the standard memory is a bit low, but the expandability (up to 4gb) makes up for it, thus the 4 of 5 stars on this review."
_
"So beware that over time you could be dumping money into expensive batteries, which admittedly last longer."
_
"it was so easy i got it opened it and started taking pictures The bit that is not so good but the camera takes aa batteries witch means you have to renew the batteries quite often but otherwise it is the best camera i have ever had i recomened this camera."
_
"I was able to go exploring and shoot for HOURS on the included batteries, and most of the time the pictures came out razor sharp."

"The batterie life is pretty bad i go trough so much batterie with this."

"ie=UTF8&s=photo&qid=1213985901&sr=1-1 >This GE performance is good for a camera of this price, but not nearly as good as more expensive options."
_
"Pros:Price:In fact is a nice camera for its price, not so good if you want quality pictures, but if you want a cheap and no high resolution camera this one is Ok. Panoramic view:Is a nice feature and easy to use."
_
"Great pictures for a small, relatively inexpensive camera"

Quality

Quality:
"The picture quality, though, was quite mediocre."
_
"The Pros: Supports up to a 4 GB SD card allowing for almost 1200 pictures at 7 MP on best quality, or up to 120 minutes of consecutive video, making it great for camping trips where a computer connection is not feasible Superior picture quality (might be because its my first digital camera greater that a 3.2 MP) Many preset scene settings for anything from children and pets to fireworks and the panorama feature is amazing (takes 3 separate pictures while having a ghost image on the side to help align them)) Zoom does not diminish quality Farley simplistic allowing most anyone to select the proper settings and take extraordinary pictures, while allowing the more experienced photographer to manually set the setting they want."
_
"Pros:Price:In fact is a nice camera for its price, not so good if you want quality pictures, but if you want a cheap and no high resolution camera this one is Ok. Panoramic view:Is a nice feature and easy to use."
_
"The camera isn't very strong and I saw and felt that the camera is not of good quality."
_
"I've never been disappointed with the quality of the pictures I've taken."
_
"Pretty good build quality."
_
"In hindsight, I would rather spend a little bit more money and get a more reliable, higher quality camera."
_
"GREAT CAMERA GE A730 7MP DIGITAL USE IT EVERYDAY ALSO PURCHASED SANS DISK AND BATTERY CHARGER VERY GOOD QUALITY PICTURES"
_
"Amazing picture and video quality (great sound quality, too)."

Video

Video:
"After about a month and a half of taking pictures and videos, the camera started having LENS ERROR and it won't stay on or open long enough to take a picture."
_
"This camera works as intended, the battery life is not great when taking videos, and the standard memory is a bit low, but the expandability (up to 4gb) makes up for it, thus the 4 of 5 stars on this review."
_
"Pros:-7mp when most others on the market were 6mp at the time-many features, and easy to use (portrait mode, panaramic, video recording w sound, auto or manual focus, color select (b&w, color, sepia), and many other features-compact-large LCD screen-ease of use-low priceCons:-grainy picture sometimes while using auto focus (I switched to manual mode to try to get past this)-not very tight zoom-delicate designMy camera is now broken, where when I try to zoom, the camera shuts down."
_
