I loaded brand new batteries into the camera, turned it on, completed the set up screens (date/language options), took fewer than six photos only to see a 'low battery' warning followed by the screen going black. I pressed the power button. The camera powered on for a few moments and battery icons on the settings screen showed full power. Then after a few moments it shut down without warning. I tried the power, reloaded the batteries, and was successful twice in turning on the camera again.
The camera was turned on for mere moments before the power indicators showed 1 bar on the screen. The power "on" button is not responsive after one brief, initial use. I changed batteries, reloaded them and have yet to turn the camera on with the power button. I would not recommend this camera based on my experience so far.
update: The camera view screen is dead. I tried to take a picture and the screen came up in a confetti pattern. Reboot, new batteries, new card all failed to resolve the issue.
