Hi Lois! I have had this camera for almost six months now and couldn't be happier with it... I normally don't go for the higher end models with cameras because I use mine a lot and it tends to get beat up on, but this one has been everywhere with me and has stood up to the true test of a busy life!!! The camera includes: (A lithium-ion battery pack, battery charger, USB cable, wrist strap, Digital Camera Solution CD-ROM, and manual) hope this helps :)
Lois; You get your USB cord, users manual, wrist strap, Canon software CD, a lithium battery and plug-in battery charger, and of course THE BEST CAMERA EVER! I had an older Canon and this is the brand I will be sticking for life! Haven't had to chance to put it to the real test at a concert yet; but will have the chance soon! Can't wait!
power line to down load to computer and charger. This is one super camera and now is $100 less than I paid for it. BEST. You will love the zoom on it. Incredible and great closeups and video. I recommend it to all my friends.
