Subject: RE: BS: Digital cameras?
Yep, tain't cheap. I doubled up on some things I didn't need, like a charger (when I got to the bottom of the camera box, I found one included). The 16 cards they provide are teasers, you have to upgrade to at least 64, and I agree that the AC adapter is almost a necessity if you do any amount of work. I use Epson papers and printer (the local school board prefers Epson because there is less down time- apparently more kid-proof). I know that HP works fine for most people. The PC magazine tests are fair and honest, in my experience. Just remember that HP, Epson, etc. are out there to make money, so they have equipment for everybody, and some of the low-end stuff is disapointing in use.
I suggest making a copy of your images from hard drive to CDR as a safety measure.
