Charging

Charging:
"great waterproof camera for the price, nice quality images but i was unhappy with the battery life & manner in which it had to charge"
_
"No one came or charger cable and when I opened the box I was very disappointed."
_
"Just be prepared for the memory card, the weird charging situation and lack of a good zoom."
_
"There are other things I could add, but since the primary purpose of a camera is to take pictures, and those are pretty abysmal, I won't mention the exposed unprotected window for the lens, the fact that the camera doesn't come with a memory card and you have to pop open the battery cover to access the micro-USB computer charging port...which exposes the gasket to inevitable damage."
_
"People have complained that you must charge it through the camera."
_
"I would say the only drawback is the charger it comes with forces you to charge the battery in the camera making a spot that I can see will cause problems with water in the future."

"Uses Mini SD so you will have to have an adapter to use with computer, Battery life is crap- less than 30 mins, very poor picture quality regardless of setting, video is poor as well and has trouble maintaining focus even on stationary targets, battery must remain in camera to charge preventing you from just switching batteries and going on your way- so many bad ideas Sony!"
