I'll try and run a more accurate test today because I just checked the DV953 manual (p.26) and it mentions 35mm (1.4") for macro from the lens.

Here is a link to download the DV953 manual

or here is a capture of p. 31 (only the relevant part).

Holy crap...
i jsut checked my cam (Pal MX500) and it doesnt have this fluro light setting :(

But in all honesty even without it if u set it to outdoors, it will make up for the blue wash you get when using incandescent light settings...

I dunno what relevance the flurou light would honestly have... :(
ive never seen the benfits so i cant make a jsudgement on whether or not we're missing out on much..

Hope, neither is it on my MX350-EN. No flourescent WB. That's why I end up doing manual WB all the time...

Supplied Battery:

MX5K: 2700mAh
953: 1500mAh??? (according to the Chuckmeister)
MX500: ??

True or not, it's not a big deal. It's highly recommended to get an extra battery anyways.

So I guess then that only the skin tone feature is missing from the PV-DV953, while this and the fluorescent feature is missing on the PAL MX5 version, along with a slightly different lens. THAT'S not so bad....!

1600mAh here in Singapore, that's for MX350 and MX500.

I use batteries that looks suspiciously Panasonic, but without the labels. Probably 'over-produced' units! :-) They are listed as 1700mAh and costs 40% of the original Panasonic batteries.
