Firestore 4 Pro

I bought a Firestore 4 Pro for my son but he doesn't want it. It is brand new and never used. I couldn't return it to Norman Camera where I bought it because I had cut the UPC code off the box to send in for a rebate prior to finding out that my son could not use the Firestore 4 Pro. I bought it for a thousand dollars. I would be willing to sell it for $650.00 if anyone is interested. You can email me at if interested. Thanks.

IMO the BeachTek DXA-4P is the best value. It goes for about $150-160 new and you can get used ones anywhere from $80-$120. Shows up on eBay regularly. I actually bought mine used for $55. :-) Click the link for more details. It bolts to the bottom of the GL2 and becomes "like one unit". The BeachTek bottom then can be mounted to a standard tripod.

BeachTek is recommended by many members. It's rugged, gives you both line and mic input, and both 1/8-in minijack and XLR inputs. I've used one for a year now and never had a problem. Don't know of anyone that ever had a problem.

As for the mic, are you sure you need a shotgun? Shotgun mics do NOT generally work very well for interior recording. For that you are better off with a cardioid/hypercardioid mic. I have seen a number of good reports for using the AT3031 as a boom mic. It sells for about $170 at B&H (but I have seen it as low as $150 elsewhere), and seems to be excellent quality for the price. It often appears in the middle of recommendations for boom mics. Some other choices toward the lower end are, in order of price (low to high):
  1. rode NT3
  2. oktava MCO-12
  3. AT3031
  4. AKG CK93
If you really need a shotgun (for exterior shots), then a great value is the AT897 at about $280. Some people prefer the Senn ME66, which is a hot mic. See The Best Shotgun mic for $300-400 (ME66/AT897/other?) and Low Cost Shotgun Microphone Comparison for more info.

Finally, whether it be a shotgun or cardioid mic, you will need to use it on a boom rather than your camera for most situations. The mic should be within 18-24 inches of the speaker.

Do you have pictures of it? Will you accept Escrow?

I'm asking because it's your first post here and it looks like a scam (I'm not implying it is, but regardless, it does look like your typical eBay scam).

You'll have to provide a way to prove you actually have what you're selling I would think for anyone to be interested.

Hi guys, i'm sorry but the camera is sold. I've had it in here for awhile but no bite so i posted it in ebay and sold it. It was like brand new, i didn't even finish one 63 minute tape with it! If you guys still want an xl2, a friend of mine, Matt McDermitt has one and I think he's looking into selling his. I think he's going to shoot on film now. Just drop me an email and i'll ask him for you.

Thanks for looking

sorry to say, it is not.

onboard controls for contrast & brightness. it simply displays whatever signal is coming in on the RCA/video cable.

if you want more photos, anyone, just ask.

Thanks Torrey... I always want anybody that deals with me to be REALLY happy they did. I'm a little nuts like that...

I meant what I said too... the next time you need a special piece of gear you can look me up.

i may be interested in the mk2 lens, or the pd150 and the mk2 if the lens can fit with the pd150, becuase the bayo should be the same in the vx2000,vx2100,pd150 and pd170

the MK11 will fit on the PD150. Let me get back to you on Sunday with full details and photos- sure you don't want a nice portabrace case in that package too? :)

I can send you pictures of everything on Sunday. The portabrace is basically a rather simple rugger case for the camera, it has many pockets to take extra audio equipment and such, and protects the equipment well.

Mine is very similar to this one

I will send you pictures if you can provide an email. You can email me directly through this board if you would like.
