You must have a shaky hand ! I take perfect shots with my camera. use a tripod !

Well you must have a duff battery. I have the same camera and can take around 200 photographs on one charge. Try charging your battery properly. Use common sense when using digital cameras remember to switch the camera off after taking pictures ! A lot of people do forget to do this.  Super wee camera nothing wrong with it at all.

Sounds like you got a very defective battery. And I wouldn't have waited 3 months to return it.

That sounds ridiculously low, have you considered that your camera may have a defect? If I was you I would return it in exchange for a new one.? If I was you I would return it in exchange for a new one.

I've had this camera about 3 months and taken maybe 30 pictures with it. Why only 30. Well the battery life on a fill charge allows you to only take about 10pictures before it dies. Also it takes forever for the camera to process a shot. So no sequential shots. You will miss that special moment with this camera. Period.
