Panasonic – Poor Marketing Decision

Filed under: news — seniorgeek @ 7:59 pm

The following is a quote from Panasonic’s camera web site.

“Panasonic Digital Cameras now include a technology that can identify a genuine Panasonic battery. For the protection of our customers Panasonic developed this technology after it was discovered that some aftermarket 3rd party batteries do not meet the rigid safety standards Panasonic uses.”

Based upon the quote above I would suggest that you boycott Panasonic products and send then an email stating that restricting what batteries are used in their camera is an unfair trade practice. What happens when you are in a remote location or in an area that doesn’t stock Panasonic batteries and you batteries die? Yup, just what I thought.
