XZ-1 Battery Life --- feedback needed
Aug 22, 2011

Based on my regrettable and costly experience, Olympus P&S cameras have truly horrible battery life, about the worst in the biz. The Pens and SLRs are much better.

With that in mind, can DP Review XZ-1 users help assure me that if I buy an XZ-1, I will not be again disappointed with crappy battery performance? I always minimize power (start-up screens, displays, etc.), but my two Oly P&S cameras still stink in this area.

Don't know whether to try to XZ-1 to accompany my E-PL1 and E-520 or not. Am nervous about that battery stuff. (Wish the price would go to $399, too.)
