I just got this camera and so far I love it but I have a few questions.

1. When it is on the dock/cradle it seems it can either be in USB mode, or charge mode, but not both. Does this mean that if I leave it in USB mode the battery will die down? Or does it keep itself in USB mode with USB power not draining the battery?

2. What does the histogram do other than look cool?

3. What codec is needed to play the videos? When I open them it just shows a black screen, no video. I assume I am missing the correct codec.

4. Is there a burst mode? I didn't see one or read about one but maybe I missed it.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I have the Z55, basically the same cam.

1. I think it will not charge if you leave it in USB mode. Thankfully, charging only seems to take a few minutes, maybe 20 max.

2. Google it, plenty of good sites with histogram usage. Also look at the manual ;-)

3. I don't think I installed a codec to view the movies. I think it is MJPEG, which is very common. Try free-codecs.com or google for k-lite codec pack.

4. No burst mode, but if you hold down the shutter, I believe it takes pics as quickly as possible in succession. Flash recharge time being about 5 secs, though, means you may as well re-frame and re-focus.
