Is this powered by those standard camp fuel canisters you pick up anywhere?
No. Per the features…
Powered by clean-burning ISO butane fuel canisters (not included)
ISO butane to propane converter.
It uses these http://www.walmart.com/ip/Optimus-Canister-Fuel-8-oz-8016049/29217222 that you can get at most camping stores, walmart,etc. Or you can get the adaptor that is listed in another post to use those little propane tanks. These stoves are cheap. Here’s one off the mothership http://www.amazon.com/Ultralight-Portable-Backpacking-Canister-Ignition/dp/B00YTGK1OQ/ref=sr_1_5?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1447772197&sr=1-5&keywords=portable+backpacking+camp+stove that I got as a kit (pot, cup etc) Great emergency stove.
