    Hi,

    I am after a starter digital camera and this one seems to fit the bill. Under £100 and I'm only going to be storing the pictures electronically so the MP count should be fine. However, just wanted to know -

    1. It takes an xD memory card. Are there different types of memory card and where is the best place to buy memory cards?

    2. A number of reviews say the camera eats batteries. I would want to get some rechargables, but are there 'better' rechargables i.e. they last a lot longer, than others. Again where is the best place to buy?

    Many thanks,

    Mark.

    This at Steve’s Digicams should answer your question on memory cards.
    I have no experience with this particular camera but I can see why they say it “eats batteries” as it only uses 2 AA, personally I’d go for something that uses 4AA but leaving that to one side, go for good quality Ni-MH rechargeable batteries 2300 mAH and higher.

    Oh and you'll need a good charger, ie fast 30mins to an hour for a full charge.

    Loads of places Online personally I use places like pic-stop.
