I can't believe what I'm seeing !!!

US $845.00 ??!!??

I think I'll order one and get it shipped to the UK - where I'm sure customs will have one look at it and refund import duty in sympathy!!

Kinda reminds me of the bodykit you can buy to convert a toyota MR2 into a Porsche ;-) Looks fine until you hear the engine ;-)

My favorite part would have to be the "Matte Box". I mean the single XLR in is great, but the "Pro matte box" does it for me with its lack of filter trays and top/side flaps. I guess those are so-called "prosumer" features that cost thousands of dollars more and probably won't give you better quality. A letus mini for this camera would cost about the same and actually do something! This reminds me of an eyemo crash housing, hmm...

Amusingly, after getting no bids, they've re-listed it and doubled the price, but now include the HV20 in the package. But they still can't spell "proffessionl," "wight," "Beautifull" or "ballance" (sic).

There's a confidence-builder.

If you can't sell your junk, double the price so the perceived value goes up!

I saw that monstrosity and scratched my head real good, they forgot to put that it superimposes an image of the Virgin Mary on all yer video - or was it an "Elvis" screen bug... I dunno, but maybe that woulda improved the $/value ratio!!
