Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does this item come with its cords cables battery video out manual box etc?

    Yes, it comes with all the cables. One cable to charge in electrical outlet is also used to connect to the computer..the adapter is removable. This same cable can also be used if you want to hook it up to the newer t.v. sets..just remove the adapter, plug in USB into the t.v. Not sure what you are inquiring about the manual. The basic operation is in the manual but it also comes with a disc that you use in your computer or laptop to view more detail.

  • Apple OSX or OS Lion compatibility?

    I can say that I purchased a $20 card reader (with 4G memory card) from our local office supply store and it worked so easy. Pretty much the same as plugging in your camera really. I liked that I could import them straight into iPhoto that way. All I did was plug in the card reader then open up iPhoto and the pictures were there to be downloaded just like any other import. I really don't think its SO hard or anything like that. Maybe just a quirk of this particular camera.

  • S95 vs. P300

    Both are good cameras but S95 has a better image quality and it shoots raw but if u are not into image editing then u dont need raw format jpeg will be good enough. The real con for p300 is that it dosent have a good video quality in HD mode be it 720 or 1080P. Its video is choppy but if u record in non HD u will be good. Right now p300 is $230 with free shipping. I will get it rather than get s95. Both qualities will never match up to DSLR. $230 offer ends 1 OCT 2011. get it now people. rather than spend almost $400 as in $360+ on s95. FYI s100 is out.
