16 Reasons Against

Poor Battery Life

Several customers who reviewed this digital camera wrote that it did not have a good battery life. Anna mentioned on Amazon “Battery life isn't great, so you will need one or two of spares”. M. Hickman mentioned in their review of the Fujifilm X100 “Battery life isn't great, so you will need a couple of spares to get through a days shooting” however despite that they scored it very highly. Five years ago expert review site Digitalversus.com mentioned “It misses out on a fifth star for the sake of a few annoying details (slow start-up, battery life” in their review but they still gave the product a rating of 4 stars.

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser
