Cameras with longer battery life can take more photos before exhausting their batteries.
Special note: The measurement standard for battery life stipulates that if a camera has an internal flash, it must be used for 50% of photos taken. For this reason, comparisons of one camera with an internal flash to another without will not be comparable
Compact and very attractive; water, dust, and freeze-proofed design; useful zoom range from a healthy wide angle to a moderate telephoto; good performance for its form-factor.
Poor ergonomics and clumsy user interface; noise present even at base ISO, becomes obtrusive by ISO 3,200; lens is soft in the corners and rather dim.
