    Wow, that is really cheap. Yeah, I remembered that RRP and street prices are different, but for accessories, this is a big difference. Even my own Pentax accessories do not have that big a gap in pricing.

    Thanks again for the pointer to the shop.

    Like Tomcat says, YES, it is very possible. Even the external charger at Olympus is $56

    Hi XZ-1 user,

    I'm thinking of getting the XZ-1 but the only thing that's holding me back is its video taking capabilities.

    Reviews state that it can only take 7min/2GB of HD video at one time.

    Can i know what happens after the 7min? Will the camera start another recording itself OR do I have to press the "record" button again?

    Thanks!

    I hv not try beyond reasonable mins.

    Ask yourself simple question, how long SINGLE movie clip you want ?
    Going to cinema, 2 hour show. The movie is made of MANY MANY MANY clips. This is just common sense.

    Anyway, just tried. it can go beyond 2 mins. I have to stop Rec after passed 2min:10sec

    Read before in this Forum, the 2Min is limit by the SD card size. If you have enough SD space, no issue.

    But best to take shorter clip and 'joint/edit' them to full movie of your creation.

    Cheers

    anyone check with Mini Challenger shop at Funan Level 2?
    Last checked was 630 with 8 GB card by cash payment.
    I wonder they can give lower than the PC Show and MS Color prices.
    Realised PC Show, Challenger is promoting it at 648 with all free gifts

    Just got my xz1 from challenger mini at funan. $630 free 8gb sd + extra battery. Lazy to squeeze it fair. And I don't need those extra STD freebies.

    I was there few hours ago, was quoted $625 with 8GB card only, nothing else. Moreover, the 8GB card is standard item. You got a better deal.
    In the end, I got it from the show because I need the battery.....the show was managed by Challenger, hence, different price and gift when you approached different guy at level 2 mini Challenger
