    Nice design camera, no viewfinder, so you view the screen to aim and shoot, nice settings for great pics! The special rechargable battery doesn't impress me, and the Micro SD Card adapter is a odd set up. Requires a battery charger kit.
    If you don't download directly off the camera USB port, you must remove the Adapter, and then remove the Micros SD card, then put in a Micro SD card adapter to connect to you card reader, or computer. I bought it for foul weather use. If you want a nice camera, that will take the moisture, this is it. I would consider this a "Special Use" camera.

  • How do you make the charger work?

    The charger is different in the one that I purchased. No plug in for our system of electricity. Cord for computor only. How do you make the charger work???

    Looks like you need a Travel Charger, 4.2v DC. You need to remove the battery from the camera and mount in the charger. It also has a 12V cigarette lighter plug to recharge the battery in your vehicles. Mine has a wall plug and 12V adapter. It looks like a laptop power supply 110V cord would fit the charger to plug into the wall, the wall plug on mine will come off, leaving other options for a power
