Has been looking aand comparing around for a ultra zoom camera. Narrow down to Pentax X90 or Nikon P100. Finally, got the Pentax considering the price in Japan. Although it is only with standard accessories, I got for about S$380 (Jpy 24,190) with 1 year international warranty. Singapore set cost about $599 with 8GB card. Nikon P100 is Jpy33,500.

Reviews stated during video, no zooming. But actually can. Hope my choice is correct. You can get from Yodobashi Camera or BIC Camera which is the big camera chain throughout Japan. Price at thesebig chain able to give very good price. Look at normal shops cost additional Jpy 10k~15k more easily.

Hopefully will like to stay in club snap :bsmilie: seems people here focus on DSLR. Anyway I have done comparison between Pentax X90 verses Nikon P100. Finally choice Pentax having better pictures per reviews. Just take the plunge.

What accessories?

External Flash? Bag? Rechargeable batteries? Tripods? Can go to Orient Photo @ SLS to enquire . . .

You can't screw a filter directly on the X90 camera lens, you need to use an adapter to do so:

It's not necessary to use a filter unless you wanna achieve some special effect (mostly CPL or ND filter and etc...). I'd use camera w/o a protect filter if I were you :)
