I recently purchased an olympus c-8080WZ. In Steve's review on the camera, the extreme long batterylife is praised highly, but mine started to blink after about 40 pics, and after recharging it I was able to shoot about 100 pics to reach the same point. Better, but still far away from the nearly 600 pics that Steve mentioned. I wonder what experience other c-8080 users have with the batterylife. Does it improve significantly after some more recharges?

Hi Olivier: You may have a defective battery. My experience was of long battery life right out of the carton.My BLM-1 hasgiven great service for more than a year; lots of photos between charges.Make sure to totally drain and re-charge a couple of times and see if there is any improvement. You may have to contact Olympus if it doesn't improve.
