Cavision HC1 Spacer Question

Doing a quick search on google lists only 2 places to purchase this item - B&H and Adorama - and both are out of stock.

Anyone have another resource for obtaining this item that is actually in stock???

TIA,

Cavision spacer

They are small company, and may be closed.
Hey, I have one of these for the a1u... don't like it. camera picks up motion since the surface area is less. Esp. noticable @ zoom.

Are there any other options for this since the camera is crippled with the bottom loading feature when attached to a tripod???

Also, anyone interested in selling their Cavision Spacer? It's still out of stock and I tried getting in contact with Cavision directly and I'm not getting a reply. Thanks!

I prefer the DeMaagd spacer, lightweight but solid, tuff and ready to attach other devices.

I have cavision rods already so I figure it might be better to stick with cavision. I got through to cavision by the way. It seems more effective to contact Jason there as oppose to emailing the general email address.

Not that it may help too many of you but Sony Australia has a page on their site where you can claim the free "spacer" that allows bottom loading.

and

It looks a little awkward but hey it's a free redemption, so I'll give it a go. I've filled in my details so I'll just wait to see what happens.

It was only by chance I stumbled accross this as it is hidden deep in their High Def site. Might be something that Sony in other countries offer.

I've got Cavision rails and platform. Redrock Micro hardware fits and works perfectly on Cavision rails. I have both the follow focus and the spacer.

Sell Spacer...

Min Lee, I would be interested in selling mine.
I don't plan on getting rails.
It's in perfect shape.

We should take this offline if interested.
