You do not need a USB cable to download the photos. Most modern computers have a built-in SD card slot. If yours does not, you can buy an inexpensive card reader that will plug into a USB port. You can buy a compatible battery charger from many different sources (Amazon, eBay, etc). It won't be made by Olympus, but it should work.
Does anyone have this camara? I ask because I recently inherted this camara minus the cords. I searched online and it needs a USB Download Cable (CB-USB6) to transfer the pictures to your computer and a Lithium Ion Battery Charger (LI-50C ). Both of which run $75 combined. So I have a nice camara but no way to use it once the battery dies or I want to transfer pictures without investing a pretty penny.
Can a regular USB cord be used? Does anyone no where to buy a used battery charger?
Any words of advice on this camara would be appreciated!
