The 16gn card will let you recoard 5 15 minute HD clips plus some photos. About 3gb per 15min.

The scene modes are quite good, but use the iauto it will let you play with what you want in the shot and the camera will get the settings accordingly. If you really feel adventuresome, shoot in Av or M. But since you are new, start with iauto.

There is no zoom button, just turn the zoom ring on the lens.

I am talking about the button that looks like a magnifying glass. I pushed and it zoomed whole frame.

That is only to view the shot you took, it does not zoom the lens.

dont forget to check the firmware on the camera, you can do it with the olympus editing software, or you can install just a firmware update program.
