I've had my dvc80 for a couple weeks now and finally have all the accessories to get shooting. I have a couple friends visiting next week who are being enlisted as actors in my first short. I'm all for maintaining a dvc80 community, either by itself or as the self-acknowledged poorer cousins of the dvx crowd.
Let's get shooting.

Aaron, is profeel a pretty trustworthy source? That price was really low, almost too good to be true...

Profeel is a great business to work with. In my dealings with them, they have never tried to up-sell me or tried the bait-n-switch like some other outfits. They have excellent on-line reviews, are registered with the BBB and their sales staff is helpful and courteous, but be warned. They are not an authorized reseller for Panasonic DV Proline.

This means their Panasonic cameras come with a U.S. warranty, but if you have an out-of-the-box problem with your camera you will likely have to send it back to Panasonic for warranty repair rather than returning the unit and having it replaced by the dealer -- which could leave you without a camera for weeks. I've been very fortunate and have never had to deal with that situation, but that's the piece of mind you have when paying the premium with one of the communities sponsors.

Hope this helps.

Isn't the same case with B & H? That's something I got to know on another Forum, that B & H wasn't an authorized Panasonic dealer.

So if anything happens to your camera you have to wait all that long time you mention. That was told by Jan Crittenden, a Pana rep.

B&H is an authorized reseller for the DVX100 and 100A, but not authorized for the SDX900... I'm not sure about Panasonic's other larger shoulder cams, but my instincts tell me they are not.

You can find information on authorized resellers on the Panasonic website under "where to buy."

Hope this helps.
