    quick question to my friends across the pond in America about the Sony HDR-PJ710VE camcorder.

    now this is a strange one but for some reason this video camera has everything i want but for some reason is not available in the UK

    (update)
    just checked sony usa and its not on their website now either :(

    the main thing none of the others have is 0 lux.

    my previous camera is a sony PC3 and is now 14 years old and it was the first commercial camera ever to have 0 lux night vision so after 14 years of having the option i dont really want a 3 lux

    the models available in the uk are the model above HDR-PJ780VE which has an horrendous looking microphone stuck on the top of it that looks horrible and easily breakable (3lux) and the model below HDR-PJ650VE which looks more like the model im after but once again with 3lux.

    ive found 3 websites that show they have it in stock in the uk but when i ring them they say they are sold out.

    my question is has anyone an idea if this camera is still available and if so know of a reputable dealer that may still have the HDR-PJ710VE available as im willing to import it to the uk and risk the warranty.

    thanks in advance
    DJ

    no worry's Andy. thanks anyway.
    yup thats the only one i found on ebay as well.
    bit confused now as after digging deeper it looks like this model 710 was released in 2012 and discontinued by sony now but the 650 and 780 are 2013 models.
    so its either wait until around about may next year for the new range (if any) or drop down to the 650 which is still available. i know im certainly not going for the 780 as the mic position is horrible and looks like it could be easily broken.

    ok, start again.
    anyone got or used the HDR-PJ650VE HDR-PJ650VE | High Definition on Flash Memory (AVCHD) | Overview | HDRPJ650VEDI.YG | HDRPJ650VE | Sony

    Thanks once again Andy.

    now after weeks of searching why couldnt i find a review site like your link.

    decisions decisions. wait until next may and hope sony bring some new models out or go for the 650 as i did look at the panasonic and wasnt overly impressed.
