I was just informed that the camera plate is extra

So I was a little upset for the price of the tripod plate not included in the Gy HM 700 . $250 is crazy although I did some research and I think the sony will work.

Not included with the Canon XL H series either, so this isn't exactly a precedent.

The KA-551 plate is never bundled unless it is done at the dealer level, which is quite common.

Doug: Keep in mind that while the Sony-style plate (which is the same as the JVC for any and all practical purposes) is pretty ubiquitous, it's not the only plate out there. Including it would add cost to a kit that many people have no use for. My dealer made me a great deal on a kit that included the plate, AB power and Dionic90 with my HD200 purchases last year. Perhaps your dealer can do the same?

Ditto. My dealer (zgc, on the approved list here), also made a deal with the plate when I bought my GY-HD200. I can't recall if they gave it to me at cost, or if it was part of the package negotiation. Look on the GY-HD list for people who sourced Sony plates at low cost (same mount). Unlike the GY-100's, the camera has clips for the plate installed.

I was under the impression that tripod plates where standard. In the sense that you could mount a Sony or Pany or JVC cam on any. Always thought it was a marketing ploy to get to buy in to the branding.

Same plates as the HD100-200 series, or DV5000/5100

In Italy JVC plate quotes at 275 while Sony at 179 . Probably prices are lower in US but the difference between JVC and Sony might still remain. I got Sony and it works perfectly
