      One of the failings of the little GF1 is that the body is too smooth when your hands are moist. I haven't dropped it yet, and less likely to now with this leatherette skin.



      Covers up a few of the many decals on the body too...

      Great idea, might have to chase one up for my D-Lux4

      Most camera guys with a manual lens and SLR history know this trick.
      Usually works with just a single Len reversed.

      Is that the same as pulling back your foreskin?

      Any tips for a decent P&S around the $250-350 mark. My brief is it should be compact in size and easy to use.

      Am currently leaning towards a Canon IXUS 130 IS or maybe a Panasonic DMC-FH20.

      Not much between them. Lens I'd give to the Panasonic, but the rest looks like a wash.

      Put them in your hand (or the eventual recipients) and see how they get on with the control layout. This is more important than the marginal differences between the actual cameras.

      Can't suggest anything better for the money either. You get a lot of megapixels for a couple of hundred bucks these days don't you?

      Yeah, too many for the size of sensors used IMO, but I'm not the head of marketing.

      sick little bit of kit, I take my s90 everywhere. Bought a little neoprene cover for it too.

      one of the more intelligent purchases I have ever made.

      There's only one place to go for all your photo needs. Sim City centre in Mongkok. 5 floors of camera heaven, plus a few electrical and hifi stores. Hard to find but will reward you with 'local' prices.

      Something to keep in mind: With the current USD rate you might be better off buying from places like B&H or Adorama in the US. Some prices are better in the US than in HK. Some worse. Both way better than Aus pricing.

      Example: Nikon 16-35mm f/4 prices in AUD

      AU price at DCW: $1799
      HK price @ APM in HK: $1215
      US price @ B&H in US: $1040

      And Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 prices

      AU price at DCW: $3239
      HK price: $2090
      US price @ B&H: $2160

      so what do the experts recomend for an entry level SLR for about $1000, Canon 550D or Nikon D90? Also best to get 18-55 and a sep zoom lens or compromise with an 18-200mm? Has anyone used digital rev from flea bay?

      Yes, they've been reliable in my experience. Their prices aren't always the cheapest of the HK resellers, but they seem one of the most dependable.

      If warranty bothers you Canon Australia will only honour warranty on bodies bought in Australia from authorised resellers (ie. not Digital Rev).

      AFAIK lenses carry international warranty, so buy from wherever you like.
