Exchange it for an "exporto" model.
Wow, great pictures!
Greatly relieved that you were able to over come the hazards of your journey! ;-)
You are probably correct in your accesment.
I can wait for the FZ200 replacement/up grade.
It would give me time to replenish my piggy bank.
The FZ70 does look tempting though..................(^_^)
September 27, 2012 Kerrisdale Camera, Vancouver, B.C., Canada.
Looking forward to a newer model down the road.:-)
I was going to tell you about some stores for camera - window shopping.
Next time! :-)
Will you be in Singapore for a stop over? :-)
What Sherm said!
Used my Panasonic FZ200 charger in countries with 220V successfully. :-)
Thank you sir for the clarification!
I was mystified!!!
I had received several replies in other treads that were quite puzzling.
Now I understand those replies were not addressed to me either. (^_^)
That's not a problem if you buy the camera in a regular camera store in downtown Tokyo.
LOT's of tourist buy their cameras in Tokyo Japan.
The stores would have export models for the tourist...
That would be an excellent devise for going to and from places without electricity. :-O
Which one would you recommend?
This one was available in my local camera store at the time.
It was not chosen after careful and deliberately research, works great though.
A polarizing filter can be an useful special effect filter under the bright tropical sun! :-)
Thanks for the advise, sir!
I already have two extra batteries plus the charger.
Also a "Targus World Power travel adapter" ...
I am working on setting up an Olympus CLA-7 adapter plus an used Olympus TCON-17C -1.7X lens for local/backyard use..
If you see similar add-ons listed, then get them for home use.
Make do with...
At one time I had considered buying a camera case, but had not acted on it.
One of the other member had bought one but returned it because of some reason ( I forgot).
It may suit your needs...
The Cannon 500D 52mm closeup lens weight 40.69 gram.
Comparatively the B+W Uv haze filter also 52mm weights 24.19 gram.
Not that much extra weight.
Thanks Maarten, I got my bearing now.
Reading up on several possible destinations in China. :-)
Not sure of the region your wife's home town is located.
Is it near Zhanjiajie, Hunan?
That's one place I might travel to next spring with some friends.
As I had stated quite plainly in my post :
polarizing filter - 15.56 gram
Uv haze filter - 24.19 gram
Cannon 500D (52 mm) close up - 40.69 gram
NO teleconverter sir!!!
