Hi, ziners. Just a word about the rechargeable vs. regular AA batteries. I don't use rechargeable batteries, as it's a nuisance when you travel. My digital camera takes two AA batteries, and I had no problems for the 9 days I was taking photos on my Paris trip. I took 246 photos on the same AA batteries. Since I use memory cards with my camera, I don't need to worry about the batteries dying and losing photos. I only buy batteries on sale, and always take replacements with me for the several items I take with me that require batteries. It's very rare that I ever have to use the replacements, but I feel confident having them with me.
