    Can someone show me what a HANDLE UNIT AND THUMB REST is? I'm looking buying a C300 that is missing these. Thanks

    Handle unit has the joystick, iris scroll wheel and record button. They are around, but are not cheap, I would scour Ebay and place a WTB ad here and or talk to someone like Terry Nixon w Texas Media Systems, they sometimes seem to have spare parts laying around that they can sell or order. Thumb rest is just a piece of plastic that covers the threaded outlet for the handle, probably not very expensive.
    Gear matters. But just a little. Story is everything.

    To add on to this, I never, ever use my handle unit, but if you aren’t, the thumb rest is a pretty important ergonomic requirement IMO. The camera is still highly useable without the handle (again, I prefer it).
