Our general method for battery testing is to reset the camera to its default settings and change the recording mode to the highest quality option. Then, we take 5 pictures without the flash and 2 pictures with the flash until the battery is dead. For more information on our battery test, please refer to our Testing Procedures (link to http://www.anandtech.com/digitalcameras/showdoc.aspx?i=2105&p=4) page. For this test, we used the included NB-2LH rechargeable battery pack . The battery was fully drained before charging for the test.

At 1,040 shots, the S60 put in a fairly good performance. Although our test is designed for optimal performance, you can certainly expect the battery to last through a full day of off and on shooting. Considering the NB-2LH is a relatively small battery pack, we were impressed with these results.
