just bought an S230 today and the sales chick said that i should get a CF reader to save the camera from the wear and tear that would occur from pumping out 64+mb of pics through the usb cord. i thought of it as kinda weird, so i decided hold off and ask you guys first. what do you guys recommend? she also mentioned something about the camera warming and possibly damaging the internals from that too. comments about that? i thought it was just normal warming from the battery... btw. it was gonna be this or the nikon coolpix 3100. decided to sacrifice features (that macro shot of the bolt in the other thread was hella cool) for the more compact profile of the S230.
