|A SELECTION OF MY UNUSED ADAPTERS|
I went to several different electronic stores and they roll their eyes when you say you're looking for an adapter that outputs 8.4v. "No, we don't carry that. It's a very unusual output voltage. Why do you think Panasonic made one different from all the others? So you'd have to buy theirs! Har har har!"
I feel somebody is playing a trick on me and I refuse to pay 55,- for an accessory that should cost no more than 25,- to 30,- euro's. In addition, it's an assault on the environment to produce unnecessary electronics. There should be one standard adapter for digital camera's, similar to a recent agreement (enforced by politics) between mobile phone manufacturers to produce one standard charger/adapter.
|7 OPTIONS BUT NO 8.4V|
Panasonic, Sony, JVC and all the rest: get on the ball and produce a standard that respects your customers and the environment.
