Small but bad battery life
9 September 2012
Excerpt: We loved that this camera was so small and had great film and capabilities in a small camera. We hated that the camera had a horrible battery life and we felt like the battery was dying every time we turned around. To replace the battery cost a fortune and was not worth it for how often it died. My mother had this same camera and had the same problem with hers.
Summary: BATTERY: Since the most common complaint I've seen about this camera is the battery life I will address this first. I can't speak for others but I have not had a problem with battery life. Most reviews I've seen here and other places that complain about the battery not lasting never gave a length of life for their battery. Some said a few minutes others complained it only lasted 2 days. First, lets consider expected battery life.
Summary: I have this camera and absolutely loved it! At first the batteries were a pain because it would eat AA like crazy, but then i bought a battery charger with CR-V3 batteries and everything was great. I bought this camera in December, kept it and great shape and never dropped it. One day when i was taking pictures the flash quit working, it would act like it was flashing but the pictures would be black, or it would do this bright flash that blinded you and made the picture...
Summary: Hay que comprarse el cargador con bateria de IonLi K8500-C de 1600mA. El zoom no es progresivo, tiene siete pasos ( 8, 10, 13, 17, 22, 29 y 38mm). Con el zoom a 38mm (5X) se produce una visible aberración óptica en los bordes de la fotografía, mas del 20%. El diafragma solo tiene 3 pasos que cambian en función del zoom seleccionado. El enfoque automático no siempre es preciso. La fotografía se comprime demasiado a JPG , las fotos de 10MP ocupan 1.7MB de media.
