Panasonic DMC-LS85 Price Watch and Availability

First published on: Monday, 19 January 2009

The price of most digital cameras trend downwards over time, and the same price drop should occur in the case of the Panasonic DMC-LS85 compact digital camera.

I’m not planning for any scheduled updates, but do check back here from time to time for the latest prices, reductions and availability information on the Panasonic LS85 and accessories.

Three colors are available for the Lumix DMC-LS85 — Black, Silver and Pink. Prices should be the same irrespective of the color, but I have witnessed different prices being charged for other makes depending on the color.

Typical accessories for the LS85

AA batteries — IMEDION or Sanyo Eneloop NiMH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries are your best bet, as they retain the charge for a very long period of time. Purchase additional batteries so that your LS85 continues to have a backup power source during extended shooting sessions. A set of 2 alkaline batteries (non-rechargeable) are already provided for in the box.

For storage, the LS85 uses SD or SDHC cards.

Refer to Rob Galbraith’s SD / SDHC card write speed tests (done on a Nikon D90) to get an idea on the relative write and read speeds of different brands of cards. At the time of writing (Oct 29, 2009), the SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards occupy the top two spots.

To ensure smooth recording of video and high resolution images, go for Class 6 or faster cards.

Good luck shopping for your Panasonic DMC-LS85!
