So disappointed I missed this. Trying to get my first DSLR (T3i) at as low a price I can find so that I can afford other things like a tripod, head, etc. That's the lowest price I've seen so far; other used/refurbs are in the $450+ range.

10% off, plus free follow focus with select rigs. I just received the K-7 model and I've got zero buyer's remorse. it's a great rig for the price. So far, they seem to be an outstanding operation.

Thanks man, just pulled the trigger on this and bought the non gps version. Coupled with the new GoPro it'll be perfect for establishing shots for my music videos, ideas are already flowing! I'll even probably bring it with me on my vacation to Alaska and get some scenic shots

The show Yukon Men has been having good results in flying in cold arctic weather with the XP2, so it should perform well up there.

That's crazy- sounds like it'll do the trick, man I wish I could shoot for one of those shows haha, maybe after college...

Interesting link. After viewing the webside videos I would expect some shaky footage. You will be needing giro stabilisation on the camera, if not there will be some work in the post waiting for you!

Canadians watch out the shipping from Wide Open Camera, I wanted 4 lens straps for $40.00 they wanted $35.00 shipping. That's one expensive padded envelop.

This is perhaps a stretch, but I'm into this 32gig usb drive. Such a small device to store two sd card's worth, for $20.
