The camera comes with a 16mb smart media card. The camera can also use compact flash. If you want to buy more media I would go with the compact flash. You can purchase CF from almost all stores and it comes in larger sizes than SM.

You can check for pricing at www.newegg.com.

After you copied the pics to your pc, you can delete all the pics off the card or reformat the card. There will a instruction book that comes with the camera and it will guide you through the basics.

so I went this mornig to buy the fuji ........... SOLD OUT !!
but the saler recommended me the new hp 850 (in sales) because of the iso thing that's not that good on the fuji !
he explained it to me, but it was chinees !! do you have any idea what he's talking about ?
Most of my pictures'll be taken indoors.
Is the hp really better ? i have my doubts, but hey........ i'm brand new in fotografie........

The HP 850 has an 8X optical zoom. If most of your pictures are indoor you may not need the 8X optical zoom. The Olympus C4000 is another 4mp camera that you may want to look at. It only has a 3X optical zoom but will take good indoor pics. The HP has some good reviews.
