Just received delivery, and am surprised that it doesn't include any memory card! Is this normal?

Dear Brian:
yes, this is VERY normal; in fact, i cannot think of a single camera that comes with a memory card in it's original box (just the camera itself), other than ones in which come in some kind of a 'package' deal, such as the ones you might see on amazon, that include the camera, and several other items you may… see more

hope this helps!

Yeah, nothing really comes with an SD card anymore. BUT, if it did come with one, it would be a cheap-y, generic brand small capacity card, and if you want to take any video, or have decent photography speeds, you will need one of the pricier, 'High Speed' cards.

I myself got the highly recommended and top-rated 16gb SanDisk 'Extreme' card. (I also plan on getting a 32gb or 64gb, for when I want to have enough storage for longer videos.) You want to look for a card that is NOT a 'micro SD', or if it is, it comes with an equally high quality Adapter to the regular-size SD. Also, if you want high-speed snapshots and faster video playback, the 'Ultra' or 'Extreme' CLASS 10 are a MUST. They need to be at LEAST 30MBPS, which makes your shutter speed faster. It's worth the few extra bucks. see less Yeah, nothing really comes with an SD card anymore.

Yes... gone are the days when a memory card was included. However, this does mean you can choose exactly what you want/need instead of having something that doesn't meet your needs floating around too. Amazon has a great selection so you shouldn't have any trouble finding a good one.
