Summary: I had been very happy with my previous Casio Exilim camera, so I thought that I would love this upgrade. Unfortunately, Casio has taken a few steps backwards with this camera. I would not recommend it. 1) The battery life is horrible. I haven't counted the number of photos or videos per charge, but it is very low. I took this camera to the Zoo and the battery was dead by the afternoon after maybe a 40 photos and a few short videos.
