Figures 6 and 7 show the sides of the M580. In Figure 6 you can see the openings for the speaker. Figure 7 shows a rubberized door that opens to reveal the USB and HDMI ports. Next to that is a small opening where a strap can be attached to the camera.
The bottom of the M580, which is shown in Figure 8, has a sturdy door that covers the battery compartment and SD/SDHC card slot. Next to that is the tripod mount. It is worth noting that the battery compartment door cannot be opened when a tripod mount is attached. Although this won’t be an issue for most users, we are always aggravated by this type of placement. It means that you cannot keep the tripod mount attached and remove the memory card. If you use a tripod a lot and like to remove the memory card for viewing in the computer, this can be an aggravating design flaw.
