Same with the G2 Chris. I charged the battery when I first got it and have taken dozens of pictures with no battery problems.

Here is one I took yesterday of a blooming cactus totally untouched.....Well except for the frame..

Glad you are having success with the G3..Your out of box pic is really good..I bet you'll have some masterpieces to show before long..

Gland.
Very impressive pic with your G2..I really like mine..Do you use yours on automatic most of the time, like me, or are you a real photographer..what setting did you use for the cactus pic..

Jerry I used the P or program setting. I set it to macro-autofocus,ISO-100, and the rest to the default settings. The camera set itself to F-2.2 at 1/50th second shutter speed.

Like Chris I'm still messing around with settings...

Oh and I'm not a real photographer....not yet anyway..

Do either of you use a Microdrive with the camera? I've considered one but lean more towards two 512 mb cards.

I'm using just a 128MB compact flash card in mine. Micro drives seemed a little pricey to me.

I am using a 192 meg card..It allows for 88 of the highest quality jpegs..I am really tempted by the new 1 gig compact flash cards..
No moving parts like the micro drive..About $250 here in the states. Then you could shoot forever without reloading..

Not that I do that very often.

A 1 gig microdrive is getting on for $300 here and 1 gig CF is roughly the same with no moving parts which seems more practical.

I agree..I have read where the micro drives can get fussy in cold temperatures and if you are shooting at high altitudes where pressure thins out...The bigger CF cards seem like the way to go.

I think I'd prefer several smaller cards rather than rely on one larger one. I've heard of people suffering bent pins when inserting CF cards into cameras but I think they must have been a bit ham fisted.
