I would just like to info you people that, I have this camera since alomost 1 year and its a amazing camera for its range of functions and price.
The info I would like to give out here is that the camera though mentioned here says can use 1GB SD card, I have been using a 16GB SDHC Integral card on it, without any problem. At the highest resolution I get for my 16GB card approx 2444 pictures or 60:13 minutes video shoot.
It’s the most easily digital camera I have ever purchased with many features, such as manual focus, aperture, video, and many more.
I would recommend anyone who is not into high fi DSLR camera and want one simple one, should buy this one for sure.
