Good package deal - bad charger
on August 9, 2012
Start with the bad:
Original charger was bad. Always shows green light (indicating charged battery - wrong) and would not charge depleted battery.
Received replacement charger quickly (thanks!). It too has same issue. Tried both chargers in several outlets and with both batteries I have.
Received another replacement charger that I asked them to test before sending. It was opened, but had same problem... always shows a GREEN (charged) light and won't charge.
Returning the charger for a partial refund.
On with the good:
Love the tripod. The floating strap is nice (works well). Battery charges (in camera - ha ha) and works fine. Have not tried the screen protectors, HDMI cable, or USB SD card reader yet.
The camera bag fits the camera fine. However, no place to put the charger. You can put spare batteries in the bag, but then it puts extra pressure on the screen or lens (depending which way you put the camera in the bag).
I prefer to use our old camera bag which has a nice Velcro sealed pouch for the camera and on the back of it a zippered pouch for charger, batteries, and memory cards.
Customer service via email has been polite and responsive.
