    This may sound a bit stupid, but has anyone removed the front Sanyo badge on the flip down cover and turned it around so that it reads correctly when ceiling mounted?
    Just bugs me it being upside down and was wondering if anyone has managed to remove it!!

    Cheers

    I can't be the only Z1 owner to think of this, can I!?!. Just thought someone may have removed it without damaging the cover and want to know how it's done.
    Guess I'll just have to give it a try !!

    Do it, if it goes wrong at least the rest of us will be safe in the knowledge that although we'll read Sanyo upside down, at least our PJs will be damage free:D

    After reading this the first time I thought you were crackers - but the badge does look like it is symetrical along the horizontal plane, and does look feasable ;)

    I say go for it - only because I am too scared to do so :rolleyes:

    good luck :smashin:

    I leave my flap open due to it not shutting properly as I have an FLD filter. I'm confident that the filter will protect the lens. As I can't even see the logo it doesn't bug me.

    Cheers,
    Cal.

    Ok, just done it. Its only held on with a bit of double sided tape and managed to carefully prise it off with a small screwdriver.
    I can now have a sound nights sleep not worrying about it!!

    That's my motto - just do it :smashin:

    Amazing how small things like an upside-down badge can bug peeps.

    I'd say you're very happy with your Z1 if that was your only gripe - lucky bugger :D

    Comletely nuts, I know, but the logo on a Sony PS2 swivels so that if you stand it upright, you can turn the logo the right way around - perfect ! Always struck me that someone at sony was thinking when they were designing it - the Z! is a gorgeous looking piece of kit - beauty in the eye of the beholder, I know - but having the logo the right way around would niggle me too !
