    I use ebuyer or 7dayshop usually for memory - might be a starting point.

    Funily enough I've just bought a case for my digicam - a lowepro and the cheapest place I found was Jessops - unbelievable I know!!

    Have you got the code for the battery the Pentax takes?

    The battery is D-Li8, i've ordered a replacement one from eBay for a tenner, from some guy in hong kong! (his feedback is good).
    I thought it was worth the risk seeing as its a third of the price..

    Can you let me know what the battery is like - I was going to buy one yesterday - I have just purchased the Optio S4 camera and thought it would be a good idea - especially for £10.

    Cheers
    Marck.
    NB I just bought a reader from 7dayshop for £9, and memory card (256mb Kingston) from valuemedia.com

    I've just ordered an S4 from Amazon (£194) which I thought was pretty good. I ordered a spare battery for £13.82 from www.gogo-power.co.uk, who I've used before and I've found really prompt and good. I also got an SD memory card 256mb from www.mymemory.co.uk (who were recommended by a friend) and look like they offer really good prices - SanDisk SD 256mb = £46.

    I got the camera case which Amazon offer at around £23 and is said to wrap around the camera and not let it rattle or shake avoiding scratching. All in all quite a good package I reckon.

    Hope this helps.... :thumbsup:

    The mucho expensive Optio case is well worth it IMHO.

    It completes the package. No point in such a dinky camera if you spoil it with a duff case. :thumbsup:

    Just remember that many of the cheaper and non-OEM batteries tend to have a lower capacity than the 710ma Pentax batteries, so wont last as long between charges

    Got my backup memory card & battery at the wkend!
    The battery is fine, works great as a backup, and cheap at £8.90 incl. delivery from hong kong (only took a week to get to me).
    Well worth it.
