I found these batteries to be very efficient and lasted the whole of my 2 week holiday. I have used them several times now and they do have a long life which is necessary when the camera is in constant daily use. I will continue to use them and haven't found anything to better them.
This camera is simple, effective and easy to use. The downside, if I have to mention any, is that ordinary batteries are used up very quickly. I have ordered Duracell Lithium batteries to see if that will make a significant difference as I am told these last for a very long time. Regarding the camera I do not see much wrong with this for the price and I have managed to capture a lovely picture of a woodpecker hanging from my bird table, taken from inside my conservatory through glass. Using this camera you do need to be careful not to do things too quickly and move the camera but this is all achieved with more practice. All in all I am very pleased with this camera, once I sort out batteries, and hope to use it on a couple of holidays featuring a lot of wildlife.
I purchased this camera for my son's birthday at his request. He is very pleased with the product and finds it simple and effective to use - a very clear photo can abe viewed on the camera and there are several extras on the camera which come in handy when photographing certain subjects etc. All in all a very good camera for the money - easy to use and easy to carry.
