USB Cable for Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2

Ever since I got this camera, I've been looking to score an extra USB cable for it. Because the camera uses a 'unique' connector on the camera, it makes it kind of hard to get.

While I could use an SD card reader for getting pictures off of the camera, there are just some times where it would be nice to use the cable route rather than fiddle with the reader method. Or to have to pack a reader and its drivers.

Even Panasonic's online store didn't list the part, but finally after some hunting around on Panasonic's website, I found a Parts and Accessories order page and found out from a Google search that the part number of the USB cable was "K1HA08CD0001"

So, I went to the page: http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/epartr/

And, plugged in the number...and it told me a price for it. So, I promptly ordered it...even though I was at work at the time, and don't usually don't like doing online transactions away from my home computer. Where I keep records of all my online transactions, that way when something unexpected shows up...I can immediately hit the 'report fraud' button (or something like that) for it.

It reported that it wasn't going to be available for a couple of months....until late in May....but went ahead anyways. Since I still wanted it....

The date slipped...but then the charge went through recently....and today, in my mail box was the cable. :yes:

Just in time to bring it along on my upcoming cruise. I'm also planning to lug my laptop with me....which has a built-in SD reader slot....so I didn't really need it. Though I'm thinking of taking my Powershot S20 as backup...so I'll need a CF adapter to save pictures from that. I'll have to make a note to bring home the USB cable from work, so I can have that as backup as well.

Don't know if I'll bring my X20 as well....I think those 3 digital cameras should cover me this trip. I'll also bring my Canon ELPH 370Z, as the final backup. Wonder if I should check that it still works. Maybe I need to pack a backup APS film camera as well....have a Fuji Endeavor 3500ix somewhere....

Actually, I have lots of other film cameras (and a couple other digitals &#59;D)...but I'm mainly looking at the good compact ones....with preference to APS over 35mm, because the cassette is easier to run through my film scanner (assuming it still works).

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
