Any UK date and Price?

Canon UK have the press release up on the HV10 quoting September but no details or specs on the camcorder site as yet.
Best myself and a dealer have got so far from Canon UK, once we have found someone that even knows about it's existence is 'No idea of when or how much, but can't see it being available before Nov' -???!!!
Anyone this side of the pond have some better inside info on the UK position?

Thanks

Here is a link to a take on it in the UK

I find it hard to believe that those prices will hold, when the units arrive and start shipping more realistic prices will show up, I would think and this is just a guess it will be more in the 800-900 pounds sterling range

I think I'll pass on it at that price.

Looks like Canon Know they have something special here,
Let's hope it lives up to the hype, I still want one but it's going to have to be a major improvement over the Sony HC3 at that price point.

Usual deeply unfortunate European/UK pricing of a model.

$1299 is equivalent to .... GBP 681 at current rates (1GBP = 1.9USD) !!!

Really quite incredible the gall of the pricing for UK&European markets.

Well part of it is VAT or sales tax. But the rest is just market skimming. In Europe the high def fans are more upmarket than in the states as HD has not become mainstream in Europe yet (apart from everyone buying HD ready devices, there is pretty little HD to watch). Must be the higher native resolution of the PAL standard ;-)
Count me in for being against "European camera price inflation".

Yet, US prices are - as far as I know - usually quoted without as not every state in the US levies a sales tax (and also percentages vary).

Because Canon don't make any camcorders in Europe I think they get hit by EU anti-dumping tariffs which can be severe.
