Thank you for your informative reply Allan.....

I am off to Bic Camerar Ikebukuro Tomorrow and will have a thorough comparison check

Great Idea....


and then off to Akihabara ( shop from Kakaku ) to pick up what looks like a NV100-K.....and maybe rip the Visa card out and get some water proof casing to play with during the Obon Yasumi........in Shimoda

Probably need a spare battery too ! I suppose that hungry 100K will need it...

Cheers and thanks to every one

Frank another topic but have you heard of HDTV and if so is it the merging of formats to make international standard?
Sorry, this won't be the case---too much money to be lost in the industry.

Lincoln,

In case you can't find the underwater housing in Akihabara, Bic Camera Senmon Ten (also in Ikebukuro) has it on stock. Just saw it 2 days ago. Best thing about them is the point card system (most stores in Akihabara don't have that). I'm sure you know about the point card system in stores such as Bic and Sakuraya right?

Yeah, you definitely need a spare batt. If you're willing to try "equivalent" batts, check out sabahoceanic.com. Price of their batts is almost like 50% of genuine Pany's. I haven't tried one myself though.

One last thing, don't forget to buy yourself a 43mm JPY1,200 MC Protector or UV filter for your cam lens. Any Jap brand would do (Kenko, Hakuba, Marumi, etc.) If you get your underwater housing from a store like Bic and use the point card, you earn at least 8% (credit card purchase, +2% if you pay cash) of the selling price. Thus, you can grab the filter for free and a few tapes as well.

Cheers

Thanks for all the tips Allan,

You have kept me on track...Yeah I have Big Camera Point Card so that may be the way for the housing,

and Iwill grab a filter too!

I actually popped down to yurakuchou Bic Camera in my Lunch and Gee they do have it set up well, TV's lined up Cameras Lined up I checked the NV70 out Side by Side with the NV100-K ,

I can see the zoom was smoother with the 100K and actually more comfortably in the hand with manual focus buttons and some other functions near the Lense positioned in a very user friendly position.

And I saw the Black Beuty for the First time, Cool Cool Cool

Gotta Get the Black.

Since its open until 9 I will drop back for a better look tonight before the Trip down to my discount shop in Aki Tomorrow..

Cheers,

Lincoln

Black is the only way to go, unless the cam's shell is made of 18K gold. (That would drive up the price, though). :)

Lincoln, I'm happy for you. Alan's advises are really the only one to go.

As this tread stiil has GS70 in it's name I want to mess a bit more.

Frank, are you saying VX2000 is worse than MX5/GS100?

On the resolution topic you can only evaluate camera in reall action. Check out this:
http://babelfish.altavista.com/babel...Fnewsid%3D5436

Link is long because I add the babel fish translator. Yes both MX5000 and GS70 spot same resolution - read the review very profesionally made.

No. I'm saying that the VX2000 has been tested to play back 500 horizontal lines, and MX5, 540 lines.

540 is the maximum for the standard.
At the link I gave the testers say both MX5000 & GS70 have 500 horizontal 380 vertical resolution after actual shooting of test chart and reading the lines. Check it out anyway.
In their test VX2000 sports a bit more lines than what you say. Overall MX5000 is the winner in their oppinion, VX2000 is just for reference.
