    Hi Chaps

    Last week I purchased the above camera, which for some silly reason hasn't actually been released here in the uk but is available from Ebuyer and Ebay!

    I picked mine up from Ebay from a seller who had good feedback and a long trading history. I went and picked it up and was able to operate it before paying etc.

    I will be putting together a short review if anyone is interested - the camera is a 5.1 mp with excellent video recording capability in MP4 mode.

    I took about 400 pics over the weekend (went to Rome) and will post a few with the review.

    Just need to get it together.

    Cheers for now

    I'm interested too - have been considering this camera for a friend (and if it's really good, perhaps I'll keep it for myself instead :) )

    Mine arrived last week and I've had chance to have a play now..

    What a camera, still quality is very good, controls are easy to use, it feels amazingly sturdy and looks far more expensive than it is.

    The video is great- a bit jerky, but the quality is great. going to barcelona in a few weeks and I'll be taking just the M1, so much easier than carrying a camcorder and camera!

    I paid £300 + £12 postage from ebay.

    Would definately recomend this camera.
