DHL just delivered my C3100 and I after ogling over every nook and cranny for about a half of an hour I opened the batt bay and inserted the battery.
How long should it be let to charge before I crank her up for the first time?
Also, is there an internal battery switch that needs to be flipped on when you first unpack it? My SL-6000 has one (I guess it's similar to a motherboards cmos battery) but I didn't see anyone anywhere in or around the battery compartment. All I saw was the reset button and the switch that locks the battery compartment cover.
Since I'm talking about batteries anyway is the EA-BL11 the only battery that you can use with this model? It seems to be the exact physical dimensions of the EA-BL08, (which can be had for about $25 each from Amazon unless they have run out.) But I certainly would like to know for sure so that I don't ruin my beautiful new toy.
As always thanks folks!,
