Hi there!
I've just got my H9 and I've started playing with it.
First impressions
-awsome technology,bunch of gadgets bundled in a relatively small camera.
- good quality pictures(vivid colors,sharp)
-I love the HD displaying,can't stop watching pictures on my TV.
-the camera's LCD display is a state of the art,it can't be compared with my laptop's monitor(HP NX6110).

-purple fringing
- poor ergonomics(need delicate fingers for navigating using the arrows.
I've posted few samples on "Flickr" with few comments for every picture:

Only one thing disappoints me - I can't find any info about when they are going to sell it in Europe.. :? Or I have to ask a help from my friends in USA.. Good to have some there.. :)
I bought my H9 a week ago here in Croatia, so I cannot believe it is not sold in Italy... :?

If you feel like driving 500km you can get it here... it's not a greatest of ideas, but sure beats getting one from the Strates.. :lol:

muddyfox :)

How much did you pay for your cam? Do you have any pics online yet?

I believe they start to sell it also in Italy.. but a price is very high, I think.. in EUR the same figure as in USD..

No online pics yet, but you get exactly what you see on Nick's photos :|

As for the prices over here, H9 sells for about 450 EUR retail. Since we're not in the EU, I believe you could also get a tax refund :lol:

:) maybe I ll get it in Latvia.. going for holiday in middle June.. but I still have another priorities.. :(

Thanks for sharing!

PS. I am sure about the quality of photos with H9.. as I can see it is the only and proper update from my V1.. that is stuffed with pro options.. ;)

Is this how much they are going for over seas?

450 Euros = 608.62500 U.S. dollars is this right? I don't know if my converter is right.

Exactly! No mistakes.. :)and the same happens to all the accessories.. the same figure as in USD, but in EUR.. added value.. :D

How is the market for reselling cameras over there? Most of the time around here I find the cameras 1/2 the price 3 to 4 months after theirrelease. Know I sit and wait for a H9.

No such luck over here. New technology usually keeps its' price tag at least a year or unless something "better" comes along, whichever comes first. :sad:
