The camera came in today. It does take nice shots. It will take some time to get comfortable with it as does all things with buttons.
I suspect the first camera may have been OK as I had the same issue with this one. The instructions are quite simple.
"Insert the battery paying close attention to the direction of the battery." There is a little slide lock that keeps the battery in while the SD card is added/removed. I could not get the camera to power up until I Physically forced the 'slide lock' to engage.
681 seconds of video @ 30fps 4:3 asp or 584 seconds of video @ 30 fps 16:9 asp. This is a Sandisk Ultra II 1 GB card.
I really wanted to know why the first camera did not work. I didn't need proof that I can be an idiot. I have proven this too many times in the past. Still, God looks after children and fools.
