price drops?

I bought my PD-150 from B&H a few months ago.

The price? $2999.95 plus shipping!

Wonder why they chose to make a big splash now? Maybe Sony gave them the go-ahead to publish their low prices...?

thats a great price for the JVC. No reason to get a VX2000 or GL2 at those prices. Even if you posted them backwards, hehehe.

Ifilm "Mother's Day" cards

If anyone received an email today from iFilm about video Mother's Day cards and has the inclination to check them out/send one--they were commissioned for iFilm by my Instant Films project. The compression is pretty high but I imagine they are trying to keep the files extra small to accomodate "Mom's" poky little modem!

Mac users, it seems we have to option-click on the "download" link and select "download link to disk", then use Windows Media Player to view...

enjoy!

I wouldn't read to much into those price drops----We are in a terrible economy and even the giants like B&H have to move inventory----I dont think it represents anything but that.

So why hasn't the DVX100's price dropped? I tend to think that the DVX100 is putting a serious dent in Sony, Canon, and JVCs prosumer cam sales.

Even in a bad economy, there will be products that are in demand---The Panasonic is in demand and thus there is no need to drop the price. It's really basic economics. I know some people on the inside at Sony and nothing earth-shattering is coming out in the next year.

With Sony I'm not surprised to hear this.

"So why hasn't the DVX100's price dropped? I tend to think that the DVX100 is putting a serious dent in Sony, Canon, and JVCs prosumer cam sales. "

I think the DVX100 is a very exciting piece of new technology, and I also think very few people outside of the video "filmmaking" community gives a damn about 24P. The place to see if the DVX is making a real dent in Sony sales is Disneyland, and similar tourist attractions where you can see what the real people are buying. These are the places I saw my first VX2K, and later, PD150. If you see a lot of people walking around with DVX100's, I would say you have a point.

Good point re: Disneyland, Wayne. Amusement parks would, indeed, be a good place to judge where the sweet spot for cameras is. (Of course right now, and for quite some time, Disney would love to anyone in their parks, with or without cameras. Their attendence is extremely depressed.)

I checked them out. The cards were cute but I ended up cutting my own 30 second spot. With all these toys to edit with, why not?

The average family going to Disneyland does not own a PD150.
