Edwin,

Where did you find this information? On JVC's site?

I found it on a couple of websites of authorized dealers that sell JVC gear that wasn't B&H. With the policy of not promoting non-sponsers of DV-info, I don't want to get in trouble.

Perhaps the best way is to look at the authorized dealers from JVC's website and go backwards from there.

What about those of us who have had this camera for a while? I was looking to get the IDX or AB mount, but I have to save up, since I am just a poor college kid right now.

That's certainly a sweet incentive considering that the battery system is the weakest comparative link for the HD100.
I was literally just about to order one from B&H and now I've got to check and see if they're part of the promotion.

Thanks Edwin...this is cool.

Do you know if this promotion is US only? I just got a leaflet from JVC in UK with a special offer of free Canopus Edius software when buying the HD100/101 - nice, but not as nice as a free battery kit

In the Netherlands the dealers have the same offer, without having to contact JVC.

Any one interested in selling the 'free' kit they might get with their HD100 please let me know.

glasseye@glasseye.com.au

Mainly interested in the IDX adaptor as I have VMount batteries and charger but will consider the full kit if the price is good.

Not all dealers are participating in the Free IDX Battery/PS promo.

The kits are only on new stock that dealers have to order since the promo was announced.

Camera's that qualify for the promotion ship with a claim certificate.

The claim certificate is submitted by the enduser to JVC to claim the free IDX products. I'm not sure how long this process is going to take.

Actually the people I dealt with were able to ship me a camera overnight for this project and told me that they were in the process of collecting the serial numbers on the existing stcok and that JVC was shipping them coupons for thise cameras that they had since Jan 1...she told me they expected to have the coupons for existing stock perhaps today and would send me the coupon next week.

The IDX Promotion Certificates are given only to dealers that order more GY-HD100U inventory.
