I'm curious as to what constitutes an "above average" versus an "average" bundle when you do a review. In looking at you two latest reviews, you describe the Olympus S800 with:

"The Stylus 800 has an above average bundle. Inside the box, you'll find:

The 8.0 effective Megapixel Stylus 800 camera
LI-12B rechargeable lithium-ion battery
Battery charger
Wrist strap
USB cable
A/V cable
CD-ROM featuring Olympus Master software and drivers
Basic manual (printed) + full manual on CD-ROM"

and describe the Panasonic DMC-FX9 with:

"The DMC-FX9 has an average bundle. Inside the box, you'll find:

The 6.0 effective Megapixel Lumix DMC-FX9 camera
16MB Secure Digital card
CGR-S005A lithium-ion rechargeable battery
Battery charger
Wrist strap
USB cable
A/V cable
CD-ROM featuring ArcSoft software, Lumix Simple Viewer, and drivers
114 page camera manual (printed)"

These bundles look awfully similar to me. Could you please tell me what makes the Oly's "above average" while the Panasonic's "average".

Thanks,

More built-in memory on the Stylus versus the 16MB card with the Panasonic. Better software with the Stylus.
