I had read on other reviews that the DV5000 has poor battery life, but not in my tests. I fully charged 2 2700 batteries and the camera recorded happily for 2 hours and 10 minutes. Admittedly I just let it run, with no turning on & off ... but this is a good length of up time for just 2 AA's.
Overall the camera is basic, but fun for keeping in your pocket. I would imagine that most people would have a mobile phone that would do the same job though.
All the Best
