2.0 out of 5 stars Not the read deal; consider the more expensive Panasonic case, September 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Look out...

This inexpensive case IS NOT "by Panasonic" as listed.

The real deal - actually "by Panasonic" - is this more expensive case Panasonic Custom Fitted Leather Case with Tripod Socket Mount for The Panasonic LX3 and LX5

A major advantage of the beautifully designed and manufactured Panasonic case is that you can keep the case on and shoot while viewing the full LCD screen.

The Panasonic LX5 does not come with a wrist strap. The Panasonic case does not add another one. I found the Nikon AN-CP19 Replacement Strap to be a good fit.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real deal, September 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is the actual Panasonic brand case. Beautifully designed, quality leather, highly protective and highly functional: you can view the full LCD and shoot with the case on. The inexpensive cases you can find as "by Panasonic" are not the Panasonic brand. The Panasonic LX5 does not come with a wrist strap. The Panasonic case does not include one. I found the Nikon AN-CP19 Replacement Strap to be a good fit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Costly for sending multiple "I'm here and I'm ok" messages to friends using the 406link service., September 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The PLB-375 is good for only 12 GPS self-tests, which makes it rather costly for sending multiple "I'm here and I'm ok" messages to friends using ACR's 406link service.

Per the product support manual: "This beacon has enough excess battery life to perform 12 GPS self tests over the 5 year life of the battery. Once this GPS testing feature reaches 12 times, the feature will be disabled by internal software."

Example: If you GPS-self test the unit twice before you depart, you have only 10 more "I'm here and I'm ok" messages available. Sending messages to friends using ACR's 406link service costs $60 per year. If the battery replacement service costs $140 (who knows, there is no price listed) the cost of sending 10 "I'm here and I'm ok" messages in one year is about $20 each.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mini HDMI plug does not work, December 26, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
With the CANON VIXIA HD camcorder, the mini HDMI plug does not contact correctly - unless you hold it and push hard.
