Syeed, did you go with rails as well? Or is this a snap on?

Took about a week to get hold of the bits.

0250-2000 VOCAS MB-250 KIT...............511.00
0350-0012 VOCAS MB-100.....................185.00
0340-0001 VOCAS Side Flag Kit.............190.00

All prices excluding vat.

You definitely have to get the rails.

I haven't got any filters for it yet. That's on my to get list.

I'm in East London. If you aren't too far away we can always meet up and you can try it out.

A September ship date is nuts. CVP have the XF300 for 2-3 day delivery Canon XF300 (XF-300) HD Camcorder - MPEG-2, 50Mbps, 4:2:2 codec, L-series lens, 3 Full HD CMOS sensors

So, Nigel, I'm guessing that you called them and checked availability? Or was your comment based on the website?

Cheers

I had no need to call them as I already own an XF305 but I have bought a lot of gear from CVP & their website is normally accurate.

Nigel, I just came off the phone with CVP and had it confirmed that if I placed an order today, I would get it in September.

For XF cams, check out Visual Impact, London or Bristol. I believe they have stock and extremely helpful.

Nick thank you.

VI London have 2 and after that they have got no information as to when they are getting more. My price I've gotten already is some 200 pounds less. As to Bristol VI they told me that I'd have to special order the xf300 and they don't have an ETA on them either.

Still looking like September, not just for myself but for others much higher up the wholesaler food chain than I.

Grazie

Re: Vocas for XF300 in UK?

There is at least one UK based seller on eBy who claims to have stock. There is a telephone number on the listing f you wanted to give them a call.

Canon XF300 HD Camcorder * New * | eBay UK

BTW Graham are you prepared to wait for a promised September ship date just to save 200? A bird in the hand & all that...
