question about Optio W30

Oldest daughter gets one of these for graduation…I need to know the largest SD card it can use. Also does anyone know if you can charge the battery via USB?? If so I’ll also get her a solar panel with USB out so she can charge it. She’s going to backpack in India for a month and it would be nice to be able to charge the battery in the field.

Thanks for any information.


won’t charge through USB
I have a w20, which works very well. The batteries won’t charge through a USB. The USB doesn’t provide enough power. Go with a Brunton solar panel, and not the small one. The Brunton has several adapters that should plug into the battery charger that came with the camera.
