Upon fiddling (practicing) with the camera around the house I've found something that I thought was just bizarre.
"You have to charge your -brand- new rechargables the first time."
I was amazed, the alkaline's ran out after 20 or so pictures of course and I popped in the new batteries and the camera cut off. I was like, interesting and then went to the camera store to ask the photo technician.
IMO Kodak leaves "newbies" in the dark! First the owners manual is only 6 pages long unless you download the manual from the internet which I thankfully did (78 pages). Then their batteries don't tell you to charge them the first time unlike energizer batteries @ the store did say that on the package.
Just some things I found unique in the first week with my new digital camera. =-)
