    Default Pure newbie got his S602Z

    Newbie here!

    I've just bought my S602Z.
    Do I use a filter to protect my lens?
    If yes, can recommend some?
    Is the SLIK U9000 good enough for a newbie?
    If no, please recommend some too.
    Can recommend some Compact Flash too?
    I prefer 256mb to 512mb...
    How about a dry cabinet?
    I need one to store my investments...
    I prefer a not too small or a not too big one...

    Please tell me where to get it at the best price. I trust you guys! Thank you very MUCH!

    Yes, you'll need a UV filter, you definitely don't want to go hunting for a 602 every 3 weeks.

    The SLIK9000 is ok. Good enough.

    Get 256, don't get 512, if you can get 512, might as well buy a X-Drive. Try Transcend 5 yrs warranty, @ $165 (Dec 2002 price) from Funan Memory World.

    Dry cabinet think can get from carrefour, any air tight one would do.

    Ridata costs ~$140 for 256MB and works well with the camera.

    Have you gotten a lens adaptor? You need to put it on in order to use the UV filter. If you plan to buy the fuji original teleconverter or wide-angle converter, you could save on getting the lens adaptor as one is bundled in the package for the tele or wide converter.

    As for the filter, Zerstorer could help He's using a skylight filter (instead of a UV one) and it supposedly help to correct some minor white balance inaccuracies.
