Don’t forget to charge your batteries
Each camera uses a battery and some also have a plug adapter. The Plug adapter usually plugs in to charge your battery or has a tray to charge your battery unless your camera uses AA. There are also rechargeable AA Batteries. Batteries last about 2 hours (approx. 200 pictures) and take about 2 hours to charge. The LCD view screen uses more battery power than if it is turned off
