Hi there!
I've just got my H9 and I've started playing with it.
First impressions
Pros
-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).

Cons
-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:http://www.flickr.com/photos/silviu_d/?saved=1

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:

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:

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..

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:
