Hi all you experienced Panasonic shooters.

I am going to finally get the FX15, but was wondering what else I should get that would be good to have. With my current digicam, which will go un-named, I have an extra 128meg card and extra set of AA rechargables, and a bag.

What would be good to get as extras for this one? 1 big memory card or 2 small? Extra battery pack? UV or ND filter?

Thanks for you'lls input!!

Jeff

So many posts - so little time.

Firstly:
1. UV filter - a MUST
2. Spare battery
3. Spare cards - with 5MP don't get less than 256MB
4. Handy bag to put them all in

Then if you want to shoot bugs or WA then there are choicesfor add on lenses. If you think this is at all possible then get an adapter (based on the lenses you're thinking about) and use this with the UV as well. I got the Phayee from Rong Jin.

Happy shooting:-)

I would make sure to have an adapter and UV on at all times to protect the lens and barrel extension. The AA batteries won't be used in the FZ15( not FX15) Some people like one big card. I use 512 cards so if something goes wrong the replacement cost is lower and the number of lost shots is lower. 2cents:arrow:
