I bought one of these last week instore (so missed 3% Quidco!). Very impressed with the camera's quality and performance so far.

Last week there were 500 bonus tesco points, but an extra 20 pounds off is better.

cheap !!

Cant use generic batteries in it apparently big downer IMO

I have always used chinese panasonic batteries off ebay for my last 3 cameras (all pannys), very cheap and last as long as originals. Much better than messing about with AA/AAA rechargeables IMO

Yes but the new firmware that will be on this camera means it has to be a genuine panasonic battery, im sure the ones you got off ebay were fake and you wont be able to use them in this camera, only Panny ones at £40 a pop

Yes they are fake:thumbsup: (well not fake exactly just not made by panasonic and not branded as panasonic).

I wasn't aware that they had started putting firmware on cameras that didn't allow 3rd party batteries:x, thats awful news as I love panny cameras and hardly ever have any other brand.

I have a Lumix TZ6 which supposedly won't use clone batteries but I've had no problem with the one I bought from Play, I think it might be worth checking on Google because Panasonic make brilliant cameras.

Doesnt lithium Ion battery mean a single rechargeable battery????
It doesnt say BATTERIES it says BATTERY !!! which surely means there is only one!!!!!!!!!!
Usually a flat rechargeable battery !!!!!!!

yes previously u get 500points with this and possible double clubcard too

but this deal is better like wht neale said.

i will definitely consider this now

with staff discount, and money off voucher. this would be good! + quidco and free del + double clubcard points...

If you follow the link posted by deanos above, you will find this:

"Panasonic Digital Cameras now include a technology that can identify Panasonic's authorised batteries. For the protection of our customers Panasonic developed this technology after it was discovered that some aftermarket 3rd party batteries do not meet the rigid safety standards Panasonic uses.

Some of these aftermarket batteries are not equipped with internal protective devices to guard against overcharging, internal heating and short circuit. If these aftermarket battery packs were used, it could lead to an accident causing damage to your camera or personal injury.

Accordingly, for our customers safety, Panasonic's Digital camera firmware have been updated to ensure the genuine battery identification to prevent any unauthorized battery usage for our customers' update at our support webpage, and introduced into each camera's mass-production on running change basis".

So it's for our benefit!!! :-D

Thanks Panasonic. Possible good news is that there is a link to download the firmware to lock your camera to Panasonic-only batteries on the site, so with a little luck the new camera won't have the new firmware installed and won't be locked. Can anyone who has bought this camera confirm???

Please can someone explain why it apparently takes SDHC cards but not 4Gb?

You can buy 4GB SD cards (not SDHC) but they aren't that common.

Thanks for the info...I'll assume that it takes all sdhc inc. 4gb

This was a great deal when I posted it at £89.99. Fabulous at this price. HOT!

Panasonics are great cameras - definately a cut above the average - but I have to agree that this battery news, if true, will become a major disincentive to purchase. However, chances are that all the other brands will follow and then the clone manufacturers will find a way around it (just like printer ink), so we'll be back to where we started but with some unnecessary cost added to the product.

Maybe this should be challenged through EEC consumer legislation as anti-competitive? The safety story sounds like a smokescreen (no pun intended!).

I agree this is a drag, but surely the way to view this is to buy the item when its dead cheap (now would be a good time!), take the battery on its merits and try elongate its life by using common sense and following manufacturers instructions (or just googling).

Then when it is near death (in say 3 years?), flog it on eBay for £30 - advertising it as a £140 release - and put that towards your next £70 odd Camera (with quadruple points 10% Quidco etc..). No doubt it'll have 20 MP and a 64 Gb SD Memory card by then - so what is the issue?

Bit of hassle, but a 1/2 price upgrade come a few years - no?

But its handy to get a cheap battery from Ebay for £3 when you are on a day out or holiday when one wouldnt last all day , if you have to pay £40 then its not worth it IMO, something to seriously consider before buying

But it's wise and handy to have a spare battery from the outset.

Not sure that all the £40 claims are correct though - original batts this size are usually around the £25 mark - anyone checked?

surely it comes with the battery + its recharable - i dont know what the big fuss is all about

Can someone confirm - I am a bit confused by all this battery talk - can you just plug the camera in and charge it, or do you need to use actual AA batteries etc?

Thanks...

darn... my tesco direct voucher didnt work

will speak to my non-food mngr

this is a good deal......... staff discount + 10pound off! yay..... :-D

Yes, but prudent to have a spare charged battery when you're out and about.

It uses a dedicated Li-ion battery, not AAs. A charged spare is a prudent accessory though a fully charged batt will take hundreds of pics.

I bought this from a store last night. It says it can take 410 photos on a fully charged battery.

Not a bad camera for the price IMO :thumbsup:
