I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! For Christmas, I received a digital camera which I was THRILLED about since I haven''t had one for 2 years (my other one died and I never replaced it.) It''s a Canon PowerShot SD30...not top of the line but there''s absolutely nothing wrong with it. As long as it works, I''m happy. The only problem is that there is no type of battery life indicator. That''s the only thing I''m not happy with. I did some research and read the threads about digital cameras and it sounds like Canon makes a great camera...so I was thinking about exchanging this one for the SD630 or paying the difference for the SD700. But, the SD630 doesn''t have a battery life indicator either (according to cnet). I''m not sure how I''m going to know when I need to charge my camera...I don''t want to have to always guess or have it die when I really need to use it. Does anyone have this camera (the SD30 or SD630) or any other camera with no battery life indicator? If so, how do you know when to charge it up? Does the SD600 or SD700 have one? Thank you!
