-   -   W7 AC Adapter when Downloading? (

The instructions for my W7 say that it's better to use the AC Adapter when downloading images to the computer.

I bought one, but it looks rinky-dink to attach it. I'm thinking of returning it.

Do you use one? What do you think of it?

Thanks, Allen

In my opinion, it's useless. Sony probably cut costs by not having to put a DC jack on the camera and now making you use a AA battery adapter. I think it's stupid to have to take the batteries out just so you can use an AC adapter.

For the time it takes to Download pictures (even 1 gig cards), especially with USB 2, it just isn't worth the trouble. It''l take you more time plugging everything up, than actually downloading.

Worst case, you can turn off the LCD if you want.
