That does look like bag full of camera... I was in a couple of stores yesterday looking for a camera for my daughter and the signs for this one caught my eye... but they aren't available yet.

I don't understand why they're still making camera that require Alkaline batteries or the rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride ones.

Why not go the way some of the others have like Kodak and use cell phone types like Li-Ion or Lithium Polymer. You get good distance before a recharge. There's no cell memory on them so you can plug them in whenever you want. Is there a benefit/advantage to Alkaline that I'm just not seeing?
