Welcome to DVinfo Derrick. All "where to buy" posts are refered to our sponsors. They support this site, and have been screened for their competitive prices, integrity and customer service. Please support them. The full list is here: http://www.dvinfo.net/sponsors/

In the past I believe that B&H Photo had some finance plans. Visit their website to find out more. They also sell used and demo equipment: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/

Another thought is buying from other DVinfo members in our classifieds forum: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/forumdisplay.php?f=16

Good luck with your upcoming purchase!

Here's some more info on their "bill me later" plan at B&H Photo: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/FrameWork/BMLfaq90_100.html

I believe it will involve a credit check where they determine if you're qualified for the program. Read all the terms and conditions carefully.

Thanks a lot Boyd 3CCD is a little pricey for me right now. I think im going to go with the Panasonic AG-DVC7. I know i could probably get a Mini sized Panasonic GS Series 3CCD but i wanted something that looked more professional you know. The school i went to had the DCV7's before they got the XL2's and i thought they were great. Im looking to film weddings and Special occasions, Music Videos, Short Films and anything else that comes along. Do you think this camera is good enough to start off with and upgrade later. I have read some reviews on other web site like B&H about the camera and people were saying that with the right lighting you cant even tell the difrence between the 3CCD cameras and the DVC7. Even at night the DVC7 is supposed to have good clarity. I cant wait i got like 5 scripts ready to shoot once i get the right Camera. You think this is a good desicion to start with. I was just wondering cause i tried looking around the boards to see if anyone talked about this Camera but i couldn't find anything. Please Reassure me cause im kind of Sceptikle . But only because its doesnt hace 3CCD technology in it....

Don't be too put off by the lack of DVC7 traffic around here. We don't seem to appeal to everybody for some reason. But the principles are all the same, and you'll definitely find a home here.

Hi Derrick. That camera's sort of an "oldie but goodie" I think, isn't it? I don't really know anything about it unfortunately. A few years ago I designed a set for a concert which PBS broadcast. I remember that someone from the station was wandering around backstage shooting footage for a "making of" DVD using the DVC7 though. So I guess that WHYY thought it was good enough for that kind of thing.

But the main thing is, you're already familiar with that camera and what it can and cannot do. So that should give you some confidence. Good luck with the purchase!

Finding a place to buy a camera

Hey guys, I checked the sponsor list and didn't see Tapeworks. I have had great success with the sponsors of this site for many years and hole-heartily endorse them, though I'm new to the Forum. I am visiting Scott when I arrive in Houston from Uganda (June) to pick up the GY100HD. Sorry to blurb on, but for those of us living out side the mainstream, this forum is the bomb. Love the connection. Thanks.

I have a couple Canon XL1's that I've been meaning to sell for a reasonably cheap price. Email me if you like for details.

TapeWorks Texas Inc. is in fact a DV Info Net sponsor. As is Omega Broadcast, Abel CineTech and Birns & Swayer (just added). I need to update that page! On the to-do list for today.
