"No, no, no, no!!!"0.5 starson by yanksguyinco
Pros: The 20 pictures you get with a pair of batteries look okay.
Take up space in that empty drawer.
Now you have a reason to buy that 48 pack of batteries you've been eying at Costco.
Cons: Battery suckage is unreal!
Summary: I cannot for the life of me figure out how this camera has received four or five stars from people! Never have I owned an electrical product which was so poor with batteries. I'm getting 15 to 20 shots per set of batteries. No kidding! I thought I was using older batteries, so I put a pair of just purchased batteries in and got 18 pictures. If you use rechargeable batteries then you're always changing and charging. You can't recharge fast enough to be able to continuously take pictures. I've tried various types of batteries and get pretty much the same result, although I guess I'll go buy a Lithium charger and some batteries to try them out. Feh!
What you save in the price of the camera you'll quickly surpass in battery and charger cost.
I spent a little more on a Canon Powershot SD1100 Elph for my wife and hers takes comparable pictures all day without a recharge or replacement.
I so regret buying this camera and I wish I had taken it back immediately. Aggghhhh....
