Top in this image is the external
flash synch port (super-imposed), directly below is the combined
AV port which splits out to video and audio using the supplied
cable. Next to this is the multi-i/o port which can double as

I haven't yet talked about the packaging or what you get "in the box" (below) but Kodak really know how to how to package a complete "kit" and the range of standard cables suplied is a great example of this, from left to right we have USB (Windows 98 / iMac) cable, RS232 (PC) cable, RS422 (MAC) cable and AV (VCR / TV) cable.

Battery charger is rated as 2.8V @ 220mA x 2 and can be used on supplies from 100-240V - 50/60Hz. The manual states that it can be used to charge any NiCd or NiMH batteries up to 1450mAH. A full charge can take 8 hours.
(I preferred to use my Maha C204F charger which only took 4 hours to charge the batteries). The charger also comes with four different power connectors which cunningly fit "hard" into the top of the charger (much like Kodak Professional equipment).
