    Default Ever since I bought Lumix FZ20.....

    I have been spending: time with it, testing different ways to take good pic, and lastly, money buying accessories!

    Today, bought one Hoya +4 close-up filter (Yahoo auction $25), one CP filter (Vitacon - $35), and one more third party battery (1200mAH - $29).

    Hope it's the end...... don't think so! still got remote shutter!

    Now, my filters are all 72mm, can't buy the MO 62mm adapter liao.

    Hope to start serious shooting asap.

    What about my fellow lumixers? Have you accumulated all the required accessories.

    so far, i just got the FZ20 on 9th october 8pm at MS Color....w0000t
    No accesories yet.

    I was playing with the camera after charging the battery for two hours and my summary is:
    1. The camera body is solid, light and feels real durable and reliable
    2. Absolute tons of features to play with
    3. Bang for the buck for it's features/price ratio

    I'll my two thumbs . plus my two big toes for this camera
    awesome camera, this would be my best $910 i ever spend on.

    Note: No stocks for the remote shutter yet at MS COlor.


    Peace!!

    the trick is to spend money elsewhere, so u have no choice but to live with what u have.

    that's my excuse anyway.

    No lah, u don't need to get all those accessories; it's just good-to-have, not need-to-have.

    Should be the same adapter. I think she joined some CSers during one MO purchase and the price has not increased at that time (below US20.00 per adapter). I got it for US$21.50 together with some other stuff. Now I think the price has increased another US$1.00.

    Cheers
