What's in the box?

Panasonic DMC-FS42 camera
Lithium ion battery
Battery charger
USB connection cable
Hand strap
Battery case

Added value

Panasonic Lumix case
Sandisk 2GB SD memory card


was a Ex-TSV so has been cheaper

great value,the case and card are probably worth twenty quid.

but......one of the things that made the Panasonic Lumix cameras so special is missing in this model; namely optical image stabilisation.
Feels well made though and pretty intuitive to use.

a very good camera
