    Hi all,

    Just wondering about the video focusing problem i saw on some youtube videos. Even with slow movements the camera was trying hard to find a focus. Do any of u have that problem? Thanks.

    Hi all,

    I find the OLED display is patchy especially for dark areas/scenes (still photo). But the downloaded photo is ok.
    Not sure if my display is faulty. Anyone has this issue?

    Thank you.

    with camera off and lens retracted


    with camera on and lens extended


    this screw thread gives you the 52mm thread to attach filters or other accessories


    this thread is to screw on to the camera


    this is the screw thread on the camera that the lens adapter attaches to

    Do you guys have a battery drain problem? If I leave the camera untouched , the battery drains slowly.
