The J4 was easier to chimp than the later model, J5. I sometimes carry a j5 for video, as not all camera bodies I play with do movies.
There is something I really like about a sub sized [Handy] camera with an 18-35, equivalent point of view.

the FSU chip arrived yesterday and was installed with 2x tape to the adapter (for safety reasons) ::)

seems to be working fine for now...the ability to zoom helps but the LCD and its poor resolution makes this difficult.

i can also confirm that the Japanese blogger is correct in saying that the chip sucks battery when left overnight. :o :o :o
