Default One of my fav things about FZ35

I may upgrade to a dslr someday when I have money and am familiar with camera settings but I don't see myself getting this feature in a dslr without some serious $$$

Nice! If/when my fz35 finally turns up, I'm going to enjoy this feature too.

Been waiting over a month now...

Cheers,
Mick

Hi Mick, I ordered mine direct from Hong Kong and it was on my doorstep by courier in 5 days, and we live in rural NSW. $404.00 with an 8GB SDHC and an extra battery.

As you can see from Jakes images the zoom is superb and worth waiting for.

Cheers

Pat

Hi Pat,

I ordered a not-quite-new one from someone in Canada - $340 including delivery. It was shipped next day, but a month later hasn't arrived. Canada Post did estimate 4 to 6 weeks...

Cheers,
Mick

Why did you not just get a FZ-38 locally? Or did you want more than 30 minutes recording time?

We actually have the fz35 (with PAL & NTSC output) for our local market - with a recommended retail price of $699. Paying $290 plus postage seemed the better option!

OMG that sounds like highway robbery! Yes 290 is much more reasonable. Good for you!

Mick that is the same price I had been given and after doing a search on the net, we came up with the deal direct from Hong Kong. $300 cheaper can't be ignored when you consider the extra battery and 8GB card also !

Happy with their service and I would buy again from the same shop.

Cheers

Pat
