Re: earthquake and F3's?

As an F3 dealer trying to figure out how best to serve my customer base during a possible few months of highly-constrained supply of cameras, I'd be curious to know if anyone is planning to rent an F3 for productions until they are available for purchase.

We're one of several dealers with a rental department, and I need to decide if it is better to hold on to a few units in rental department in order to help a larger number of customers through the wait instead of satisfying a much smaller number that I could gratify with a sale.

Any feedback?

Same here at E.C. Professional Video, Inc. I wanted to make sure that all customers and potential buyers get their camcorders first before we open one for our rental department.

We have our F3 and NEXFS100 Super 35 event on the 31st of March and then NAB. That makes our decision even more difficult to stock or put up for rent! Our customers and the rental companies in NY are telling me that F3 rentals are really doing well.
We do have an PMW-F3K in-stock currently.
