When is the PAL version coming out?

As simple as that. I'm sorry if there has been any info released on that. I tried searching but didn't find info on that. Does anyone know when the PAL version of the camera is coming out, and could please tell me?
Sorry again if this is an unnecesary thread. I'm just planning on buying a new camera, and it's important for me to know how much I'd have to wait to get the HV20. Thanks for any replies. Regards!

Here in Australia i've been talking with the local camera places. they don't have an answer. All they could say was May. Canon hasn't told them a thing.

Re:When is the PAL version coming out?

In several norwegian webshops it is supposed to be available from early April. One shop says it may be in stock on March 30; several others claim they will have it in stock within the next week or so. The wait is almost over ...

1000 Euro equals 679. Thats better than the cheapest price I can currently see being advertised here in the UK of 740.

Ever get the feeling we are getting ripped off something rotten over this side of the pond?

It's well documented that the US price is around the $1100 mark which is 560.

You guys in the US don't know how lucky you are!

Showing as due in 5-7days (currently March 28th) which would mean around the 4th April.

Thanks

Hi Fergus,

I have to respect Chris Hurds forum and not post where that price was as he always recommends you use the site sponsors. I don't think he minds if you drop me a mail though. Details on the left!

I checked with Canon Hong Kong regarding the launch dated of the HV20 and their reply was "We have not confirm the launch day of HV20 in Hong Kong yet."

Where does it show they have it in stock? No offense, but I haven't seen there any references to that. Many online shops don't bother about showing their actual stock, some don't actualize it and some are even plain wrong. They just add it to their catalog, that's it. About 30 online shops in my country (Switzerland) have the HV20 on their site, ready to order, but none of them have it in stock. So I really doubt they already have it.
