Hello all....

Pretty new to the FZ30 but as many have advised got myself a spare battery, just to let anyone in england know DO NOT BUY a spare battery in the shops here!!

they cost £44.99

I just picked one up from Ebay (delivered from hong kong) for £13.28 DELIVERED!!!

genuine lumix one too.... so be sure to shop around as the UK charge stoopid money for this stuff!

Hi :-)

The CGA-S006E/DMW-BMA7 clones sell for £6 (inc shipping), who did you get a genuine one from?

got it from

component-sourcer

my personal feeling is its always best to go with the genuine items whenever possible, and for a little over £13 there was no reason not to

I would appreciate knowing the source of this. I've one on back-order from XL Shop for nearly £19. Are they in stock at £6?

I bought two from Ebay, only really paid for the postage (£12) as they were listed for 1 pence each, figured it was worth the gamble and I have had them since last September without any problems. They are 'Techstep Lithium-ion' 7.4V 800 mAh.

I also bought a remote shutter from Germany for only £11 boxed genune Panasonic, worth shopping around.
