yes the camera opens and shoots BUT the question was why does it run down so quickly when not even used
used it on a holiday a few years ago and shot 185 pictures before the battery needed a recharge
looks ok but after a dozen shots down to half full.
not a lot of confidence it will shoot sufficient shots for my use. I need to make a journey to shoot a building and if it goes then I have wasted my time and will have to return empty handed
