Thread: Olympus XZ-1 with FAST f1.8 lens

    If you get outside, you will probably pay 685 with 8GB card plus screen protector. So you need to decide if the 16GB card + Case + cleaning kit + mini tripod + additional battery is worth $63 bucks more.

    Some of the bros mentioned that the battery is not very ex , if you buy outside.


    In my view, the mini tripod, cleaning kit and case is quite useless.

    Getting it tomorrow.
    Just need the extra batt and screen protector. Wonder what'll be a good price to get and where.


    Agree that the mini tripod, cleaning kit and case are quite useless to me.

    Well, I've called a few shops and were quoted between S$59-S$61 for the Olympus-Original-Battery between Pennisula-Plz and Funan shops...!! As for "S$49was quoted by one of the shop at SLS - but if one DARE-to-Trust the so-called Original at S$49 then buy liao pray-hard..(hopfully don't spoil the Precious-XZ-1 &/or Batt won't actually lasting...thingsss like these...!?!?

    Hence, I bought mine with the genuine original Olympus-battery on the same spot where I purchased my XZ-1 at $$$(cos of sooo-regular-customer lor.....)

    I see they are selling on-line for US$11.56
    http://www.olympus-replacement-battery.com/xz-1.htm

    Has anyone used non-original battery and is it fully compatible?
    Where is the non-original battery sold and how much?

    As for SLS, I will never buy from there . . why take the risk and get the agony.
    It is not the money but the dignity of being cheated, bullied, shouted at . .
    People must start to boycott it until it is cleaned up.

    Should one buy/use this Olympus XZ-1 Battery Charger or keep using the "built-in"-XZ-1's cam-body to charge battery...(main-concern here's, will the circuitry fried-faster=cam spoil faster...)

    Will you(XZ-1 user...)buy?

    I dont understand what blueskye168 is saying or asking. But I will continue to charge the battery via the supplied cables with battery in the camera. It is just like charging your mobile phone so I think it should be safe.

    Is that so? Strange... I bought mine for $38 only. Original... not third party.

    Depends on my usage if you ask me, I don't own one, but like I said, depends, if I have only one battery, charging via battery charger might be faster, if I travel a lot, probably charge by USB, but if you have spare batteries and change quite often, best to use external charger

    Well, it's pretty straight forward to understand what I've mentioned...don't believe...go read again and you'll realize ok!!

    Anyway, this is very neutral-tone, pls don't mistaken bro...!!

    Btw, may or may not be of any importance to individual preference/usage like Spidey89 has mentioned...
