    Oooops. I left my charger at home and at a family event tomorrow. Is it possible to charge the battery via the usb cable and my labtop????

    Posting this from BlackBerry so hopefully not too many spelling errors and bad formatting.

    Unfortunately no. In fact, connecting the camera via USB to the computer will actually drain power, albeit rather slowly.

    Thanks for confirming. Thought so. Hopefully the local bricks n mortar photo store will charge it for me in between church and the party as the carry the PENs.
