  • Noticed in some reviews that people were complaining about bad battery life, no instructions, or instability with long zoom…
  • Overall images and usage is fairly intuitive as well as surprisingly good battery life…
  • It's somewhat bulky and the battery does not seem to last long…
    Nat C (Amazon) - March 2015
  • It can fit in any pocket, battery life is really good…
  • No useful getting started guide to make it clear how long to charge the battery for ( not more than 24 hours in the specifications ), so looks as though they have not bothered to design the charger very intelligently so that it switches itself off when charged…
  • Battery life seems okay, be prepared to charge it up fully before you head out if you are spending a whole day of shooting…
  • You have to take the battery out to charge it in a bulky charger…
  • Battery life little poor only lasting about an hour a time when doing video…
