OT: HC9 for sale

Since getting my TM700 (and more recently a GoPro), my HC9 has seen no action at all. So to prevent me keeping it for five years then chucking it in the bin I thought (for once) I'd try to sell something.

Here it is on Ebay for $750 with 3 batteries, wired controller and top mount. I'm in Australia but include free shipping to anywhere.

PM me for a better forum deal :-)

Trust this doesn;t contravene any forum rules...

edit: I should add that it's in perfect condition. Has recorded probably less than 40 hours total on top quality Sony tapes only.

This is probably why I usually never bother to sell any gear -- already had a spoof buyer!

Relisted here:

Did you sell it?
I would have been interested but your price was a bit high.

It's marked as sold on ebay but - for the second time - someone that ebay said was an "unauthorized access account" bought it ! Seems weird to me. Anyway, I've PM'd you.
I thought ebay was meant to be easy!

Once I used the EX1 for the first time, I swore to never use tape again.
Since I couldn't afford an EX1 myself, I bought a TM750. (I never use the 3D though)
TM700/TM750 are awesome little camera's. Their footprint is a bit small for those times when you want to impress with a BIG Camera but the image captured is beautiful, full raster HD (60p if you want).

Although I don't have to Capture Tape I usually Transcode with ClipGrab or Toast while transferring the files to my computer so there's no real time savings there but by using 32GB Class 10 SDHC Cards during my shoots, I'm not limited to tape length. Wish the TM750 had dual SDHC slots for those long seminars though.

If I were able to purchase another camera, I wouldn't hesitate to revisit the TM700/TM750/TM900... but I doubt I'll ever buy another Tape Based video camera again.
