Spare batterie is the most usefull part of assocerie you could find.Ive had it for few months , it really paid off.
Ive also got HDMI cable , to connect Pany to HDTV.Real joy watch 16/9 photos and movies on large screen.

UV filter...Dont know , I wanted to get one , am not sure about it.As I uderstood it , there are 2 advantages;in direct light , it reduces blue and violet...rayes on photos
ex. http://lh3.ggpht.com/_Ljs4X91OmvM/S7...0/P1000656.JPG

Second advantage is keeping the Leica lens clean&safe

Carrie bag is a must have , I must not say lot about it.FZ38, isnt really pocket-friendly , but thats price one has to pay.

It seams like any extra batteries I get are never that useful to me,
I usually get two, one in the camera and one in the camera case or
bag, I use the one in the camera until the battery is low, grab the
extra battery and find that is low to, and its gone low just sitting
in the bag or case, but yea it might be a week two, sometime
more, between camera uses, and I am using Lithium-Ion batteries

I kind hate cameras with odd batteries for that reason, like to carry
an extra set of easy to find disposable batteries, for when the
rechargeables are dead

On a second note, I was able to get a 3 year warranty on my camera
for around $50 that also covered "Accidental Damage from Handling"
from SquareTrade, I just hope it was worth it

okay, I can see most of the stuff that you can put toward good uses, but the aluminum case

You really do not want to be carrying around a case, while a good padded bag would work better.

I use cases like that aluminum case all the time, for tools, notebooks,
test equipment and so on, how I use the camera, is ether in the yard
of my house or in the woods that surround it, or I drive somewhere,
take the camera out and start taking pictures, there is never a time
were I would hike or carry the case any long distance, its just for
storage, I actually dont like bags, I tend to think the camera is better
protected in a hard case

Ok, now I get it. That makes sense if you do not kike ore carry the case really. As were have pelican cases at work for equipment, but I always take any test sets out of them and carry them in a soft case when running around. And put the equipment back when we are back in the case when we get back.

The only problem I would have, is if it rains, or I fall with the camera,
and I have before

I might get a camera holster or holster chest harness.

I just ordered a HDMI video cable from Monoprice for under $8 shipped! I have used Monoprice for a lot of my home theater cables and they ship fast and always have high quality and cheap cables. Here is the link to the 6' cable http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2

Joekelli - let us know how this works with the FZ35.

A whole cheaper than Panasonic (which may be proprietary)

Check out the reviews on the item page, all very good. Monoprice has very good stuff and I have used them before. But I will let you you know how well it works when I get my Camera and cable.
