Hello Eric: The camera comes with an Original Canon LP8 battery and a Canon charger. It does not come with any type of memory.I bought a 32 GB high speed SD card class 10, and it works very good. I hope this helps.
Comes with one battery, NO memory chip - must be purchased separately. Order a memory chip that same time you order the camera so when it shows up you can use it. I personally recommend the SanDisk Extreme 16 GB SDHC Class 10 UHS-1 Flash Memory Card 45MB/s SDSDX-016G-X46. The size varies, get what you think will work, I like shooting video and so I didn't want to go with a 4 or 8.
yes.. the camera does come with a battery though you would be advised to buy a back up battery. It has a small internal memory, but does not come with a explicit chip. Would recomend you buy one.. 32 Gb, class 10 would take care of most of your needs unless you want to take a lot of pictures in continuous mode.
