yup those are the ones.

Get a set with the charger, and a set without would be my suggestion

That was a very disappointing start! I haven't heard of many
reliability issues with Pentax DSLRs. I hope the replacement
will prove to be reliable.

You and a dslr are just not having any luck.

But all brands have issues. the nikon d5000 has a recall on it where the camera just dies. Canon has oil spot on their 550d. These are consumer grade camera, and they just do not build them a well as they uses to make things.

I have had a failure with my canon, and they fixed it pretty quickly.

That's a good camera. A step up from your previous 1000D. The
450D also seems to be very reliable. Good luck with this one.
