Neither does Sony make any camcorders in Europe....

It's disappeared off my German site now, which is odd.

I have an HDTV that autoswitches PAL/NTSC; an HD network Media Player that outputs NTSC/PAL, and of course an NLE can output either, so is there anything to stop me in the UK buying and using a US model from B&H and saving some cash?

EDIT: OK, I found out. I'll get flickering on indoor shots under lights. 50Hz:60Hz

Plus you will usually have to pay a nasty little charge to customs (import tariffs + VAT).

On the topic of price difference, I think the anti dumping regulation may be a reason. Although it is stupid, there isn't really any European consumer cam producer to protect.

May the WTO succeed in bringing the evil video cam tariffs down ;-)

I'd suggest a flight to NYC but at present it's maybe not a good idea. :o

thats very odd ! Either B&H made a mistake in their pricing or it WAS intended to be $1499 and then Canon or B&H decided that was too high?

The duty in to the UK for a camcorder that can record via inputs other than the lens, is 14% and then you have vat at 17.5%
Back in the days of no dv in on camcorders this stuff was a major topic of discussion, the duty was placed to protect the eu vcr industry ???

Does it record, other than via the lens?

IF the eu version does have the analog in recording ability, then it would be classed as a vcr. BTW Sony does make some high end broadcast camerals in wales Some of the broadcast stuff is subject to 103percent duty, which is why Sony did it (THOMPSON was very effective in getting duty protectin for themselves )

In the UK we have an expression, "A load of old 80ll0cks." I feel this is aposite applied to the camcorder VCR duty situation.

Thompson, eh? A camcorder manufacturer of repute, I think not.

Hello All!

The HV10 is now listed on one swedish site at the price of 12795 SEK, that is about 1782 USD, hehe. That is including our lovely 25% Sales tax.
Here is the link http://www.scandinavianphoto.se/?31767
The HC3 is listed at 14995 SEK at that site which is quite high (can be found for around 12000 SEK at other swedish stores), so I am guessing that is the MSRP.
I can't wait to see some footage from that cam, hehe.

Best, Magnus.

I'm not sure. Is Sweden in the EU?

Hello Ian!

Yes, Sweden is in the EU.
I also found some prices from Germany: http://www.pricerunner.de/unterhaltu...sort=3&noidx=1
I checked but it doesn't seem to be listed yet on the UK version of Pricerunner.

Best, Magnus.

Thanks Magnus.

Had a look at that German link. I think "Sofort lieferbar" has be to be a bit optimistic.
