Nikon Coolpix P1 | Digital Camera Review | Storage and Energy
The Nikon Coolpix P1 features a resolution of 8 Megapixels which means large files. Luckily Secure Digital (SD) memory cards are available with large capacities. And because the SD card is being used for many devices, the prices aren't too bad either. In addition the Nikon P1 has an internal memory. And of course you can use the computer for storing the images by sending straight to the computer via Wi-Fi. This means you will have an enormous, almost unlimited capacity. The only disadvantage of Wi-Fi is that it consumes a lot of energy. The capacity of the Coolpix P1 is just a bit too limited for it.

Secure Digital 512MB memory card
The Nikon Coolpix P1 doesn't come with a memory card. It doesn't need it, because the internal memory is able to store as many photos as usually fit on the card delivered with a camera. Not that many photos will fit in the internal memory so I'd advice you to purchase a Secure Digital card with sufficient capacity. And I'd say 256MB at the least. If you will be on the road for quite a while and don't have the opportunity to empty the card in the meantime, 512MB would even be better.

SanDisk Ultra II Plus SD memory card
Lately I haven't been using a standard SD card anymore for a digital camera. When I need speed I choose the fast memory card, otherwise I use a somewhat deviating SD card, the SanDisk Ultra II Plus SD memory card. The design is similar to that of the standard SD card, apart from one unique feature on the Ultra II Plus SD card. This memory card has a built-in USB interface. Removing the card from the Nikon Coolpix P1, and literally 'breaking' it in two, the USB interface is freed. All you have to do is insert the card in the slot to transfer your data; that is to say: if you don't use the Wi-Fi function or if you just want to transfer the images quickly.

Nikon Coolpix P1 - Transfer photos to your computer
There are many possibilities to transfer your photos from the Coolpix P1 to the computer. The first option is using a card reader. It won't consume any energy from the camera and it happens really quickly. Especially with a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed or FireWire card reader. It's also possible to connect the Coolpix P1 to a computer with a USB cable. However, this is not the fastest connection and it does cost some energy. So I wouldn't advise this. Besides that the earlier mentioned SD card with built-in USB interface or, lastly, the most innovative possibility: Wi-Fi. The speed depends on the router and computer. If you use the Wi-Fi module of your notebook, it will use the slower 802.11b protocol, with a speed of 11Mbps. A good router will offer 802.11g protocol with a maximum speed of 54Mbps. Still slower than the fast USB 2.0 card reader, but faster than the usual USB port of the camera. It will take approximately 8 to 12 seconds per photo. And the module will slurp up the energy of the camera's battery. If there is not enough energy left, the camera will indicate so and refuse to transfer images. A handy protection.

Nikon Coolpix P1 Wireless - Lithium-Ion battery
The Nikon Coolpix uses a Lithium-Ion battery for its energy. Without using Wi-Fi you can just go on shooting. But if you use the Wi-Fi connection often, you have to bear in mind that you will have to recharge the battery everyday. It might be wiser to purchase the optional A/C power adapter. And when you're on the road for more than one day, it might be smart to purchase a second battery. It will enable carefree shooting. A second battery is always recommendable also in case you loose one; you'll still be able to shoot your precious moments during your holiday, city trip or other events.
