Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. A quick search reveals several other reputable sellers with the DVX-200 ‘in stock’ at prices lower than the current “£3540.00 inc VAT” price at Production Gear.
    These things change all the time but, as it’s often worth shopping around (and asking your preferred supplier to ‘Price Match’ the best offer!), I’d suggest considering the following (prices @30th Oct.2015):

    Production Gear: £3,540.00 inc VAT

    3D Broadcast: £3,480.00 inc VAT

    H.Preston Media: £3,479.00 inc VAT

    CVP: £3,358.72 inc VAT

    Visual Impact: £3,358.72 inc VAT

    ProAV: £3,354.00 inc VAT

    The £186 potential saving shown by this quick search could go towards memory cards, batteries, camera-bag or other desirable accessories?
    Alternatively you could take the approach of movie legend George Raft who, when questioned about how he’d spent his $10 million fortune, said “Part of the loot I spent on gambling, part on booze and part on women. The rest I spent foolishly.”

  2. Many thanks for your really helpful review. I got mine last Tuesday, partex at H Preston. It’s lovely everything is in the right place. I just wish it would stop raining!
