    I just got one (an HV20) on ebay yesterday, for a decent price, and also the component cable separately. It was surprising to me how few of the HV20/30/40s were being sold without the cable, which...

    I found those earlier in a B&H search, but the price stopped me cold. Probably a great solution, but a golden chalice where a beer glass will do : )

    Thanks all the same!

    One of the challenges with comedy is that when it's bad, it's much worse than almost any other kind of bad. Just like telling a joke - if it's a stinker, or even if you just tell it badly, people...

    Finally saw this, and at the risk of getting slammed here, I have to say I really disliked this film (to put it mildly). I think PTA is an extraordinarily talented writer/director (mostly on the...

    When larger objects in the room can't be moved, just moving the camera to get an interesting composition can cover a lot of ground. Which may sound sort of 'duh', but is often botched in lo/no budget...
