A USB cable can be used to charge the camera's battery.Insert the included battery into the camera for charging.You can use the compact power adapter, or a computer to charge the battery.
But according to Canon, to charge my camera through USB cable I should purchase a $50 proprietary charger and a specific IFC-600PCU USB cable for additional 20$, which is quite ridiculous.
With some computers, battery charging may require the memory card to be in the camera. Insert the memory card in the camera before connecting the cable to the computer's USB port.
I am trying to figure out if USB-charging is enabled by hardware (specific wiring of USB cable?) or by SW (setting in firmware?)
