Just for a little note, I am having some issue with the battery slot. It seems to drain battery very fast. But actually the battery is still well-usable in other electronics device.

are u're using K-X or K-R with normal AA batteries or normal rechargeable batteries?

if so, its not a problem - the camera uses up normal batteries very fast. we normally use sanyo eneloop rechargeable batteries. they last longer.

anyway, servicing is done by the local distributor.

It is because like K-x, you have to set the correct type of battery setting....

Lithium is 1.5v, will go 1.4v if the batt going to use up...
recharge NIMH is only 1.2v, will go 1.1v if the batt going to use up...

if you set "Lithium" and put in "NIMH" it will show red bar very fast.... because Camera expecting 1.5v but you feeding it 1.2v... so will think that the batt going dead soon

if you set "NIMH" and put in "Lithium" it will show green bar all the way until it dead.... because Camera expecting 1.2v but you feeding it 1.5v... so will think that the batt still have a lot of power when it going down to 1.4v, then you will have issue on green bar a sec ago, suddenly cannot even power on the cam...

so if you think that drain battery very fast but actually the battery is still well-usable in other electronics device, i think you are belongs to set "Lithium" and put in "NIMH" case...

If I already bought the extended 1 year warranty.
can I buy another year of warranty at the end of the extended 1yr warranty?

That means that
I will have a total of 3yrs warranty.

I am currently using the 2000mah during last outing toward a te ending the batteries dying. I think I need the 2500mAh one..
