    Greetings everyone,

    I'm a new member on this forum, been reading various posts and discussions here for quite some time now. It just so happens that my first post revolves around rather ancient (so to speak) Panasonic camera model - the Lumix DMC-LC1. I do realize that my chances are slim, to receive any kind of response in reference to this outdated model, but still ...

    I just came across a DMC-LC1 specimen (mint condition, SHTCNT less than 500), which has a rather peculiar serial number: E6SY00008 R

    From what I've learned so far, pretty much all DMC-LC1 cameras sold in Europe and US, had a specific S/N alphanumeric pattern (A4SYxxxxx, B4Yxxxxx ... J4SYxxxxx), and so did the cameras designated for Japanese market (CY4xxxxxx). The camera I'm pondering to purchase has a serial that doesn't match any of those S/N patterns, neither European/US nor Japanese. With the former at least we were able to confirm, whether a camera was one of those with affected CCD (known issue with early series cameras, from A4SYxxxxx to G4SYxxxxx), but the serial I listed above doesn't provide any clue whatsoever.

    Any hint regarding this riddle would be most welcome.

    Kind regards,
    Bostjan
