Default Gonna be a new FZ10 Owner, looking for spare battery....

Hi all. I have just ordered a FZ10 and it should arrive Wednesday.

I did considerable research and was looking at a Kodak 6490, a Oly C-750, an HP-645 and a Fuji 5000.

I downloaded the manuals for each camera I was interested in and then took the time to visit stores in my area that had them in stock. That took a couple of days, but I can not emphasize reading reviews and manuals can not take the place of actually holding these cameras. One advantage of reading the manuals was I got to instruct the sales people on how the camera worked and it allowed me to "fit" the camera to my hand.

The C-750 and 6490 were just too small. Although the 6490 hass a beautiful LCD and I really liked the intuative interface of the Kodak.

The Fuji felt better, but the LCD was too small for me. The HP felt really good, had a nice interface and large LCD but only had a 8x zoom.

Anyway, to the second part of my post. Where is the best place to get a spare battery? Anyone have a favorite place for accessories (zoom, macro) lenses?

Thanks

Haven't seen what stores carry them.

But here's a link for e-bay.

Default Re: FZ10 battery

Eagle Imports has been a reliable source of FZ1 / FZ10 batteries. Their price is $20 plus S&H. They have an eBay store and a Yahoo store. Some of the other batteries on eBay have been reported to be inferior, but the ones from Eagle seem to be just as good as the one that comes with the FZ10.
