Mea culpa -- they were NOT rechargeables, sorry. They LOOKED almost exactly like our Kodak NiMH cells, but they are "Digital Camera Battery" in large print, and under that, in fine print, "Oxy-Alkaline" -- so, I will use them in my 3W LED penlight. (We have scads of rechargeables, and so far, the camera seems to get respectable use per charge.)
Does anyone know of where I can buy either a fitted case (i.e., an "everready" type, NOT a "pouch" type) for this camera OR a rigid LCD "hood" type shield (the type that folds OVER the display when not in use, and then, when opened, acts as a sun shade)?
I've done a bit of searching but so far all I can find are "pouch" type cases and "display protectors" that are clear plastic that you stick over the LCD.
I really do like this camera (and I am a nitpicker, a "dinosaur" -- dyed in the wool film user, former professional photographer, Kodachrome addict (with a fortune in Kodachrome 25 in my freezer). BUT... I am *very* nervous about damaging the big *unprotected* LCD. It sure would be nice if they included a hood for these things. It *might* add fifty cents to the cost of manufacture, but it would provide a LOT of protection.
