Default The day has finally come...

...where my Amazon gift card arrives in the mail. Woo! I'll be picking up an FZ35. I hear it's a good camera. Kidding. I've been on this board long enough to know that it's an amazing camera.

After asking around, I was told to make sure I get some Class 6 memory cards. Does anyone have a preferred brand?

Also, a friend recommended I get a lens adapter. Are they necessary? I found this one on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846

Sadly, I have to go to a board meeting, so I can't press the shiny "Buy it" button until I get back.

This is the one that I got from Amazon. BTW, I think Amazon has their Prime trial membership that gives you $2.00 second day delivery. You can cancel after you receive the camera in the mail. I did this and it works like a charm. I wish I used Amazon more, I would definitely keep it for future purchases.

Also you should get this battery. Works great so far:

Make sure we see a big announcement thread - we're all like puppies with a new ball 'round here!

Camera arrives tomorrow...memory cards on Friday. I'll just have to pop the one out of my Droid to stick in this one. Is it tomorrow yet? In Australia, it's Wednesday, right?

Put Awstrayia in your profile bloke, so we can spot the Aussies!

Yup - it's Wednesday, and it's one way those bl**dy yanks will never be ahead of us!

Chillgreg: sorry to disappoint, but I'm in Ohio. I was just hoping that since you were in Aust, then it would count for me as well.

To make up for the confusion, I'll fly to Australia and buy you a beer.

It has arrived to much fanfare. There was even a parade. I'm ignoring the fact that it happened to be St. Patty's Day.

Sadly, due to me having to grade, I didn't get a lot of one-on-one time with it. But, I hope to take it for a spin this weekend at the park to see what I can capture.

Thanks everyone for the support to help me support the economy.
