Be very interesting to see what the street price of the SxS cards settles down at. I think there was some disappointment at initial reports that they would be almost as much as P2 - maybe we're in for some good news here as well?

Anybody heard anything?

Reminds me of the 5 free HDV Master tapes offer they were running a while ago - anyone participate in that? How long did it take to get the tapes?

It seems like with a lot of these rebate-type things the turnaround can be months, so it might be a while before we get the second card... for most of the shooting I do I think 2 8gig cards would suffice, but one would probably be a stretch.

EDIT: also - anyone know what an "authorized XL Reseller" is? Does that just mean an authorized reseller, or is "XL" some special designation that not all resellers qualify for?
I never got mine even after submitting the paperwork 3 times and calling several times. I'm still not a happy camper over that.

I can't imagine were in for the P2 pricing, especially since Sony is throwing in a 8GB and offering another 8GB free before 03/08. I surely don't recall the HVX200 rolling out like this.

No info.

Searching on just PMW (rather than PMW-EX1 brings up more stuff)

$450, phewwwww, better deliver the goods! That's over 15% of the cost of the camera.

Curous to know how the CAC works.

If its anything like the Sony WA for the V1, I will be saving my money and waiting on Century Optics.

So does anyone know the Lens size of this cam???

I just bought a Letus Extreme and want to know if I need a step up or step down ring.

$450 is right in line with what the cost should be for a decent WA of that size. There's nothing wrong with that price. It's actually lower than I thought it would be. By the way, $450 is not 15% of $7000. It's barely 6.5%.
