Olympus SP-350 Battery life

bylbhistand Mar 26, 2008
5 Helpfuls 6 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Great resolution, color, macro. All the important manual controls there if needed.
Cons Some barrel distortion at wide angle settings.
Recommended it? Yes

Great little camera with one drawback - battery life. OK with expensive CRV3's but abyssmal with alkalines or even 2500mah rechargeables. The software upgrade made only a very slight improvement.

After researching the battery testing sites I tried the Eneloop batteries. In testing they... Read full review »

Pros Easy to use, high megapixel for better printing, lightweight
Cons none
Recommended it? Yes

We all want the "perfect" digital camera rather we are parents capturing the moments of our children growing up or if you want to get somewhat serious and indulge in some amateur photography.

Pros Inexpensive, easy to use, lots of features, best I've found
Cons Prone to shaking, no manufacturer made rechargable batteries
Recommended it? Yes

I bought this camera for a few reasons and it lived up to my expectations very well. I wanted a camera that I could take skiing and biking, but also be able to take great pictures, this Olympus easily covers both.

There are settings to get a quick shot and let the camera auto set the... Read full review »

Pros -Auto and manual features -Setting for panorama pictures with Olympus XD Card (optional)
Cons -Software is not supported by Windows VISTA OS. -Battery life seems limited
Recommended it? Yes

The camera seems to have an abundance of features that are useful to the novice and the more experienced photographer. I have not had it long enough to comment on the quality of the camera, but wanted to make it known that the package software, OLYMPUS MASTER is not compatible with WINDOWS VISTA...

Pros Large LCD, great pictures, 8.0 megapixels!
Cons The strap it comes with is big and bulky and is for your neck.
Recommended it? Yes

This camera is professional quality! It has a variety of modes and options to enable you to capture your picture to the best advantage. If you are used to a point and click camera, this one does require a bit of an adjustment period, as it allows you to manually set all features. The good news it... Read full review »


A+ why all the complaints

Pros pictures quality, price , size, features, and ability to add external flash lens
Cons battery nonrechargeable
Recommended it? Yes

This is a diamond among the usual toys that so many so-called camera companies have put on the market. The SP 350 comes with so many features that place it at the top of the camera choices in it's price range. I bought my camera through Best Buy web page. At $229.99 few if any cameras compared. 8m...

Pros My Mode, Manual Settings, 8 MP, lots of available Accessories
Cons Initial battery problem, Weak auto mode
Recommended it? Yes

In April I had the very difficult task of replacing my trusty Nikon Coolpix 4300. As usual, I became a regular at all the camera shops playing with all the toys for about 2 weeks before I finally settled on the Olympus SP 350. As a photography enthusiast I have a few demands:

Terrible battery life.

bymyredbird May 6, 2006
8 Helpfuls 9 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros I love the size, shape, ease of handling of this camera.
Cons Battery life is simply terrible in THIS PARTICULAR unit.
Recommended it? No

Something is terrible wrong with my battery life in this camera. I must have a direct short somewhere within the cameras internal components. Believe it or not, sometimes ONLY 5 pictures before the battery indicator light shoes red but a few more shots CAN be taken before it shuts down. Olympus is... Read full review »

Pros Good-to-great camera for someone who isn't satisfied with camera-phone quality...
Cons None of consequence; though I'd like a microphone that is automatically...
Recommended it? Yes

My initial impressions of the SP-350 were all good, except photo quality - and it took some serious play-around time to arrive at a judgment on that.

My decision: I had to change some of my ways to take advantage of the SP-350's features to get pics that are noticeably better than those I... Read full review »

Pros Very easy to use in "Auto" mode yet allows for full manual settings.
Cons Battery life with rechargeables somewhat limiting.
Recommended it? Yes

I've had this camera about a month, and absolutely love it.
I don't think you can get a better quality camera with all these features for less. 2 1/2 weeks after getting the camera, I took a trip, east. I deliberately tried to put it to the test with shooting photos with as many features as I... Read full review »

Getting to know this camera

Pros Size, weight, style, audio operation.
Cons Difficult menu to navigate through.
Recommended it? Yes

I purchased my SP-350 during lunch one day and I love it, but learning how to navigate through the menu has been a pain. I can work through technical things without help, but it annoys me to have to consult the owners manual as I had to with this camera.
Beyond that, I like it. Read full review »
