Canon Powershot A2100 IS | Digital Camera Review | Storage and Energy
The Canon PowerShot A2100IS is a 12 Megapixel camera storing its pictures in JPEG format. This means the increase of resolution hardly influences the file size. Canon has been supporting the Secure Digital memory card for several generations now, as well as the SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card. SDHC has a minimum storage capacity of 4GB and a maximum capacity of 32GB.

Canon PowerShot A2100 IS storage capacity
This is enough storage capacity for problem-free shooting. The video mode of the camera captures video clips in VGA resolution. In this case, the file size is also reasonable and does not cause problems for an SDHC memory card. Considering the highest quality JPEG and the best compression (3MB for one picture), 2GB will suffice, but if you also want to use the card for other applications like a camcorder, you could go for an 8GB card.

Considering 2GB of storage capacity:

USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection
SD/SDHC format memory cards are available in various speeds. The advantage of a faster memory card is rapid data transfer providing the computer and the device reading the card are equipped with a fast USB 2.0 Hi-Speed connection. Or you can choose to purchase a card reader. This handy device needs to be connected to the USB port and is capable of reading a card and writing to it rapidly. The computer will recognize the device as an external hard drive. Additionally, you will also save energy

Canon PowerShot A2100 IS batteries
According to CIPA standard (Camera & Imaging Products Association), about 160 pictures can be taken using two AA format alkaline batteries. These measurements are made in circumstances that are not always the same as those in which the photographer shoots. It may be wise to consider this amount as the maximum amount. You can also use NiMH batteries in the Canon A2100 IS camera. These are rechargeable and can make approximately 400 pictures according to CIPA measurements. If the battery is running low, a pictogram will be displayed on the monitor as well as a message. When the battery is fully charged, both will disappear again.
