My JVC vendor told me he'd be receiving his first shipment by the end of July. He seemed quite sure of this, as he had just spoken to the JVC rep this week. I guess we'll know soon enough.

Available in Australia

They are in stock at www.prodigitalaustralia.com and apparently can be shipped right away.
Has anyone heard about US arrival?
Stephen

I was told by a JVC marketing manager that stocks would be severely limited at first (Europe). And that there would be less than a couple of hundred at launch. :-(

That's great if you live in Singapore, but I would strongly urge our North American readers to *wait* until this camera is available for our DV Info Net site sponsors before making the plunge. It's a mistake to buy a camcorder from overseas and pay for that level of shipping and insurance.

Yes, and it's better to let somebody else be the first kid on the block with the new toy. Remember the first edition sync issue with the DVX100, the audio issue with the early PD150, and some electromechanical difficulties with the first run of JVC's 500. Let somebody else buy the first run and complain loudly about whatever is wrong, and then when the .1 or -A model is out, you'll be happy you waited.

Of course, JVC seems to be breaking new ground with this camera, and they could come up with a perfect first edition this round. Still, I'd wait a few months. And, as Chris said, buy from a reputable dealer in the country where you are.

By the way, everything I read about this camera makes it a very good possibility for a lot of people. The fact that it uses real lenses, is shoulder mount, and has the normal switches pretty much where they belong makes it an attractive package for me. It appears that it will be a fully professional camera, only smaller.

Bill and Chris are right of course, and very wise...but, its boring to wait, and somebody has to be the first "kid on the block". And for me living in Sweden its 10 000 kr (1300 USD) less money to by from a dealer in New Zeland all charges inkluded (Transport, insurence, import duty, VAT).

Mikael, more power to you, and *please* be sure to tell us all about it when you have played with it a little; I'm sure that there are many people here, myself included, who will be very interested in your reports. Thanks in advance,

But don't just tell us about it. Please post some kind footage. We already know in print what this thing is supposed to be capable of. I am dying to see any kind of footage from this baby. I don't care if someone posts footage of a kid picking his nose. I just would love to see anything.

Thanks

Thanks for posting, Steve. Looks like Edius does indeed handle HDV ;-).

We eagerly look forward to anything else you care to post.

Best,
