Decent Camera but battery is not as good
on February 21, 2011
We decided to get a second camera. Since we love our Casio Z1000 so much, another Casio was our first choice. This little camera has all the features and then some, campared to the Z1000. If you want a point and shoot that's easy to use and handle, at an affordable price, then this is the camera for you.
The only cons have to do with the battery. It's a dismal 700mAh compared to the 1300mAh for the Z1000. That means the battery life is about 1/2... 1/2 the pics and twice charging.
To make it worse, the battery has to be removed from the camara and placed into a cradle to recharge. It can't be 'plugged and charged' like other cameras and devices. Of course it's not difficult to do, but would you buy a cell phone if you had to remove the battery every time you wanted to charge? Probably not.
The camera is nice; however, the battery issues make us want to look for a different brand camera.
