Cameras with longer battery life can take more photos before exhausting their batteries.
Optically-stabilized 12x zoom lens, large 3" LCD screen, full PASM exposure control, super-close macro shooting, 1280x720p HD video recording, low price.
Slow performance, poor battery life (good with NiMH rechargeables, though), no HDMI output to connect to HDTV.
Aggressive, sculpted armor design screams adventure; Shooting is easy and fun, producing good image quality; No-slip surfaces make camera easy to hold; LCD works well in bright sunlight; Unique Macro and Digital Microscope modes.
Difficult to view LCD screen underwater; Poor button layout; No optical or sensor-shift image stabilization; No high-speed full-resolution burst mode.
