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...... :blah: don't think so! :sweat: still got remote shutter!

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

Hope to start serious shooting asap. :bsmilie:

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

Is it useful ?

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
:thumbsup: awesome camera, this would be my best $910 i ever spend on.

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


Peace!!

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
