So my Sony bit the sand, literally, on a trip in March, and got ruined so I need a new camera for this summer. I've been looking at the S100, and I really like it, but it doesn't have any way for it to be charged via USB. I found the Olympus xZ-1 and it looks like its charging pack has a USB input for charging and also has the larger sensor size and is comparable. It also looks like the Samsung TL500 is also in this same range of cameras with USB charging.
So, does anyone use the XZ-1 or the TL500, or something comparable that is USB chargeable, or should I just stock up on extra batteries while on extended trips and get the S100? I have several long trips planned, and while road tripping it’s MUCH easier for me to charge stuff via USB with my goal zero kit.
