The HV20 has been arriving at dealers early this week. I picked one up locally (Mac Store) yesterday.

How long did the HV10 take for it to drop from $1099 to the $899 price it sells at now. The reason I ask, is because I will most likely be purchasing the HV20, but really don't "need" it until July, but of course me being a tech geek want to pick it up ASAP... However there is a little issue called the wife who will want me to wait closer to July to see if the price drops any. So looking at Cannon's website and seeing that the MSRP is the $1099 for both camcorders, I would imagine the price drops would probably mimic each other... Any info would be appreciated...

Not true Dave. B&H has shipped their initial shipment and I've got a tracking number. They have an excellent reputation.

NYCFilmdotcom, it is entirely possible when you initially called they did have them in stock and in between calls they sold out. I suspect I got one of the last ones in their initial shipment.

Status now shows "accepting orders"; guess their first batch sold out pretty quickly, eh?

Anything is possible, I had issues with B&H in the past and was only going to purchase from them because they stated it was in stock and I could pick it up in the store.

In any case Calumet Photo had it, I updated my order to next day delivery so I should be out shooting by this time tomorrow.

Cheers

Nothing about backorders until you order one it seems!!

Never going to use or go to that store again.


Malanick....is your hv20 still on "backorder" from BB?

Oh it took many many MONTHS, sometimes the price even seemed to go up before it went down probably a year later!

HV20 authorized vendors were flooded preorders the day that it was announced. If you want to get one, check Mac Store or somewhere similar. Finding one online at this time will be rather tough.

Check you rlocal best buy within a week.

Gave up on the "Best Buy" purchase. Got mine from a mail order canon dealer that happened to have one extra hv20 not pre-ordered. It got to me on Thursday!
