Olympus SP-350 Battery life

Mar 26, 2008
Review by  
Rated Show

Pros:Great resolution, color, macro. All the important manual controls there if needed.

Cons:Some barrel distortion at wide angle settings.

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 found that even though the total mah output over time was about equal to the other batteries, the Eneloop was the only battery which would supply 10 amps (!) for a period of time. Two or four of these will get you through any event, no problem. You can even keep shooting for a while after the battery warning shows. Also, they do not discharge appreciably while your camera is sitting on the shelf (85% power after one year). I found the charger with 4 batteries at wal-mart for $20.
