sramesh21, I'd defintely go with a good set of high capacity Ni-MH Rechargeable batteries.

PowerShot SX100 IS

Power Supply
Power Source
1. AA-size Alkaline Battery (x2)
2. Rechargeable AA-size Ni-MH Battery (x2)
3. AC Adapter Kit ACK800 (optional)

Shooting Capacity
Still Image: approx. 140 shots (AA-size Alkaline Battery), approx. 400 shots (AA-size Ni-MH Battery) *

Playback Time
Approx. 420 min. (AA-size Alkaline Battery), approx. 600 min. (AA-size Ni-MH Battery)

* LCD screen on. The above figures comply with CIPA testing standards and apply when fully-charged batteries are used.

Bigger, the better

$10 for 2 gig sD card is a good buy. I bought a new point and shoot in April and watched for sales on sD cards and have purchased a couple of different sizes. 1, 2, and 4 gig. Then I found an 8 gig card for $27! Maybe way too much space but when I start shooting short videos, which I love to do with my camera, the 8 gig makes a huge difference since my model camera has no restrictions on video size except for memory card space. Going on vacation next week and don't want to haul around my laptop, so having all that memory space on the cards will be very convenient.
