Battery Performance

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 page. For this test, we used the included NB-2LH rechargeable battery pack . The battery was fully drained before charging for the test.

Number of shots taken in one battery charge

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.

    I sell cameras so I get a hands on feeling of all cameras, even though I dont do such detailed tests to determine which camera is better than the other it is generally seen that consumers like the look and feel of Canon cameras, I print 8"X10" to see which camera shoots good pictures, so far Canon brand cameras have truly impressed me, even though I personally have a Nikon Reply

    Nice review. I have the S30 and it is still kicking just fine. I have yet to find a reason to really upgrade. I think once SLR cameras come within my price range, I will jump for one of them. Reply

    Was just going to say something about the last line in the review, but the first poster beat me to it.

    Yeah, and thanks for the "easter egg"... Nice picture. :)

    while i pretty much despise all Canon cameras, it was nice to see a "test shot" of Anand and Vinney at his wedding!

    Great easter egg!
