Exactly the same as the one I just broke. SX150.....Amazon still has some at a discount as it's an old model now...probably won't see one in a big store.

That's it..but I didn't buy the bundle. Plastic body, kinda bulky for a point and shoot. Not water or dust proof! The things I like about it are that it can be used full manual mode so I can choose all settings if I want and it has a decent optical zoom. I like the AA batteries too...but that's just me.

I too would much rather have aa batteries too..
HB got me one that ate batteries like crazy had to return it..
Nikon.. 10 sets of batteries in less than 200 pic

The Fuji that I have right now is fun under water .. But the zoom sux,
And 90% of my pic get my fingers in it on the fly
So this one is going back...

I hooked up a charger in the tankbag and got myself a couple of cheap spare batteries I charge while riding- works like a charm:

You can NOT use alkaline batteries.

You Must use a rechargeable and preferably a Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) with an mAh rating above 2,000

They all do that.

Using Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) I can get close to 200 shots on a charge.
