Default What are the essential S50 acessories every owner must have?


I have just bought a S50 and now I am realising I need some other "toys" to work with my S50.

According to the forum I could find out the principal items a S50 needs for my case (an amateur taking London's pictures in a travel):

512MB Compact Flash
- Lexar 12X or Lexar 40X or ????

Extra 1000Mah Battery
- Which one should I buy? Where to find online?

Cleaning kit
- Which one? I don't have any clue

- I have some generic in mind, they are good and are priced about USD 10,00 here in Brazil

- Does it worth??

Thanks in advance

I would get the 12x. You might even go a bit faster, but I get that it won't take advantage of a car much faster than about 20x.

I got Maha batteries and chargers and like them a lot. Steve has reviewed many batteries, check out:

No idea on a cleaning kit. I use a microfiber cloth, but it isn't perfect.

I use lowepro cases, but they are designed for DSLRs. I don't know anything about cases designed for cameras the size of what you have.

I feel a tripod is worth it. It is often described as the single item that will improve your pictures the most. And I would agree with that. But for some people, it isn't an option. It all depends on how you use the camera. Do you carry it all the time (you won't do that with the tripod.) Must you carry something small? (tripods are rarely small, unless you get a tabletop tripod.)
