wonderful camera--battery dies very quickly so far (opened it with 60 mins left, used it very little and its at 25 mins)

Summary: I would give 5 start review but the battery dies very quickly it seems like. The camera itself is simply amazing, the picture quality is great, keep in mind this just came in the mail this morning so still learning all the modes and such.
Summary: This is a very good camera for the price. It is very feature laden with good manual controls, but can be as simple as a point and shoot. Overall, the picture quality is very good and photos can be enlarged to 8x10 inch.
Summary: I picked this up to use when I don't want to carry around my DSLR. I have had this camera for about a month now, here are my initial impressions. The Good: Power up time Focus time Various shooting modes, including HDR and handheld night Picture quality and color is very good Display is excellent...
Summary: I really like this camera. I did have to return the first one due to a over exposure problem but with Amazon it was painless. Having said that I must say for a point and shoot with an almost ridiculous focal length it is excellent.
Summary: I have been using Nikon professional DLSRs since the D1x hit the market. Typically I shoot with the 200-400vr or the 500AFS. I also spend some time kayaking and got tired of dealing with the excess weight and bulk in the little boat.
Summary: Impressive camera with lots of capabilities. Problem with camera is the electronic view finder is too small for me to compose my pictures. I have also experienced about 70 percent of the pictures are dark but editable. It's as though they are 1/2 f-stop underexposed.
Summary: The camera is very nice. A little on the heavy side. I have owned many mega-zoom before and this is the biggest and heaviest(also has the most zoom of course). The video button is very slow to start if you are in photo mode. 5 seconds. Almost unusable in a sporting event.
Summary: bought p500 and canon sx30is at the same time i compared both and i took the p500 back, the battery life was too short and the pictures wasn't as good as the canon,3 other people told me the same. i also didn't like the way the p 500 would focus when u zoomed all the way out it bounced all around.
Great Zoom, definitely need Fireware Update to Fix Bugs

Summary: Pros: 30X Zoom shoot Panorama 3D is a plus Focus is very good Manual Focus Ring 10 FPS Burst Best HD Movie Cam Battery. Shot over 1000 pictures, still have battery Cons: Processing Times. You need to wait after each picture taken.
Summary: I would give this 4 1/2 stars as no camera is perfect. The 1080p/60p footage is some of the best I have seen in a compact camera like this and even better than some camcorders. Does very well shooting in low light and the image stabilization is among some of the best I have seen in a Camera at this...
