I'm ever so happy to report that I was able to exchange my camera (that no longer accepted batteries... ? no idea why it stopped) for another at Wal-Mart! Of course, they no longer carry the same one (the Z740) so, I went with the P850. Its 5.1 MP but with a 12x optical zoom. Its the performance series camera (one of 3).
I love it as well! I had to pay the difference ($55). It is really nice... lots of cool features. I can actually use (buy) lenses and filters for it as well as a zoom flash! If I were to get them, it would be somewhere in the future as those cost $150/piece... but, its cool to know I can get them if I wanted to! And since its an EasyShare, I can still get the nice printer that goes along with it :D The compatible ones range from $119 to $500. I'm excited! I have a camera again! (Again, a HUGE thanks to Kimber! BTW, Kimber, I had sent you a little thank-you gift; well, to the address on my package, and it came back to me!)
