The HPX500 is out and we are currently selling them. We also offer an excellent financing plan directly with a lender, which is the most advantageous way to invest in gear. Feel free to contact me privately to discuss if you wish.

Mitch... can you get a good deal on a Pro 35... a friend thought that a used one would be hard to find.. because of the demand for them on productions... then that way I could borrow my friends 35mm lens from his Arri when he's not looking and use them with the HPX 500...

Just kidding about borrowing the lens...

I guess I should pm you as well...

Thanks Gary

Depending on the gear & time period, it can actually be cheaper. And then you own the gear. There's added value in being able to depreciate it on your taxes as well.

A used Pro35 is not particularly easy to find. We can offer a fair price on a new one, but I don't know if it will be in your price range. It's going to be more than the camera.

That's what I've heard from someone else about the Pro 35... to much in demand for one to be on the market... plus I know it'll be more than the camera... that's why a deal would be nice... like 1/2 off :lol:
