Doesn't charge through USB

on 12/1/2011

I have only had this camera for a short time, and I like it. There are some things I don't like about it too. I tried to use a 16GB class 6 sdhc card (no-name brand) that I use in a different camera. The camera keeps telling me that the card is locked. I know this isn't the case. Perhaps there is some compatiblity issue with this card and this camera. I tossed a 16gb pny sdhc card in the camera and it works fine. So I don't consider this a major problem. The only major disapointment I have so far is that the camera cannot be charged via USB. Every camera I have had before can charge through USB. I am not why they didn't make this a feature. To make things worse, if you want to connect it to the computer you need the battery in or buy a kit. The kit looks like a battery with a wire hanging off it. This battery shaped think goes where your battery would normally sit. Stupid implementation.

So far, so good. Great shots except I haven't tried it underwater yet... that comes this fall in Cancun!
