X-Mini II speaker and Panasonic LX 3 Accessories

I wanted to buy a hotshoe cover (P600) for my Panasonic LX3 pictured below. I found it at SillieNation.

I was looking around the site and saw the X-Mini speakers. I did a little research and found great reviews for it so I ordered one too. The site’s owner, Eilis texted me that the new X-Mini II (P1,600) was arriving the next day so I ordered that instead. I didn’t know what to expect when I plugged in my Ipod Touch. I was amazed to hear a loud, clear and bass heavy sound. It was absolutely fabulous. I can’t imagine such a big, full sound coming from a tiny thing like this. I tried playing different songs from Adele’s “Chasing Pavements” to Kings of Leon’s “Use Somebody”. It all sounded great even when I put it on the loudest volume. The sound can be comparable to a 3 piece pc speaker with sub-woofer even though it’s just a mono speaker.

Another thing I love about this speaker is it’s built in rechargeable battery that lasts for 11 hours. A usb cable for charging comes with it. If you have more than one of these X-Mini IIs you can connect them together with the supplied cable to create an even louder sound. I played it in our office and impressed the people there and now they want to order 5 speakers for their families.

Ordering from SillieNation is a breeze and delivery is super fast c/o Air 21. I ordered this on Thursday and got it on Friday morning.

I also bought a Ricoh LC1 auto lens cap in Hong Kong for my Panasonic LX 3. It’s so convenient since I always forget to remove the lens cover before. I used my Fujifilm F100fd to take these 2 shots.

I bought a new case for my LX3 recently in Hong Kong to replace my standard leather case. I got tired of removing the screw on the bottom of the case just to access my sd card or to charge the battery.

This new LX3 case is flimsier than the one above but I like it because it serves the purpose of easy access and storage when the case is in my bag. A warning though – this case is very hard to find. It sells for HK$290 in the Panasonic counter in Sogo department store in Hong Kong.
