Excerpt: They are many cameras out there. But all of them are very expensive. I have found a very good digital camera from Wallet for only $100 dollars. The Olympus FE 25. It is a very good and trustworthy brand. The camera is great. It is 10 mega pixals which …
Summary: One of the worst pieces of electronics I've ever purchased. Battery life is literally 20 minutes of casual photo (not video) use. Photo quality is grainy and dark. Better off with a $10 cell phone camera from a drug store.
Summary: Battery life is abysmal. Even the worst of the Nikon Coolpix cameras that I have had have gotten far better battery life. This one seems to be able to take only a dozen flash pictures or so before the batteries are drained to the point that it turns off the screen and refuses to flash.
Summary: The battery problem would seem to be an issue of battery contacts. Constant fussing with cleaning both the contacts and batteries gets a lot of life out of batteries. But you should not have to do this nearly every damn time you want to make a pic.
Summary: I can't exactly figure out the hate for this camera. Most cameras and high drain devices really need lithium batteries in them, to live up to their potential. My camera drained the batteries that came with it in 10 shots, which I expected to happen.
Summary: This camera will really take you back. Prohibition. Woodrow Wilson. Ah, the golden era of silent film. Why the nostalgia, you ask? This darn thing won't record movies with sound! Are they joking? What brilliant engineer thought this was a good idea? Give me a break.

Summary: Awesome camera! Takes great pics! Super deal with the extended 2 yr warranty was under 90 bucks! You won't beat that deal anywhere for a quality name awesome digital zoom camera. A pleasure to do business with and have already recommended this company to many friends!!
Summary: Only took about 5 days after i ordered it to get to my house. Its a great camera for the asking price! Takes good photos and battery life last a long time (its been about a week and im still using the same ones that came with it).
