1. Where is the best place to buy this great camera?

2. How many batteries would you suggest and is there some package that is a favorite like the Anton Bauer that B and H Photo offers.

3. Which tripod is versatile and smooooth?

4. I'm a metal artist and have my own metal shop so what would you build if you were me....tripods....steadycams....booms/cranes?

5. What bag hard hard case is your pick too?

I'd be crazy to say I wasn't biased, but you could call Ron in our L.A. office, but I am sure there is a vender closer to you... probably in Seattle.

2. I would have 3-4 batteries and preferably two chargers. The DVX isn't too power hungry - don't know if that changed with the B - so it could be said that I'm being extra conservative. If you're shooting all day though, you might need the extra batteries because they do take awhile to recharge. The person I rent a DVX from has two batteries and I bring 2 more and an extra charger and I've never run out of juice.

3. The DVX on a Bogen 501 head on decent sticks is pretty nice. I've also used a Sachtler Panorama on standard sticks - overkill but pretty nice.

4. I would build a jib/crane. Mechanically it's a pretty simple concept - so with a physics refresher and metal shop access/knowledge - it can be done.
