    If you can put it to use, you'll make well over $3000.00 from using it. Credit cards are a perfect way to buy one.... Just pay them off!

          I got an insanely good deal. Might be the lowest price someone has ever paid for a perfect dvx100a with 100 odd hours.
          "I'm releasing a new camera, its called the GREEN Purple. It will shoot 18k and record to GREEN RAY, 4:4:4, for under 5 bucks."

          UPDATE: "Our estimates of an 18k camera was off, it's now a 28k camera. You can see the threads on your actors shirts, the pores in their skin, and the individual pieces of hair. You can trade in your 18k model for the 28k camera in 2015 when it ships. Release date subject to change, all details subject to change, in fact, count on it."

            My brother made an animated short using an old animator program and some sketches from his art book. He won a contest and used the winnings to buy a DVX100b, macbook and Adobe production premium. Crazy dude, my bro...

                I also started with a little Canon Optura 20 which I bought with a credit card from best buy in my freshman year as a film student (2004) and then pushed it to the limit, using lights, mics, tripods, and just learning the craft. Now I have a DVX100B.

                    I worked three jobs for a summer, but my big break came when I got a raise and a new position. I started at a restaurant as a server-type person and was promoted to being the events/banquet coordinator because I had the most most experience with them at 19. (I had been working at the elks club helping with wedding receptions and worked at another restaurant doing banquets) I kept 1 of my other jobs (rock climbing instructor) because it's awesome and quit the elks job. I was able to save up for it in about 2 months. Plus I bought mine used

                      I traded 3 music videos for it. I told a studio client of mine that if he paid for the DVX100A and everything I needed to go with it. I would direct 3 videos for him. I think it all came to around $5500.00 with the computer and other things. He ended up getting locked up and I never did those videos.

                          Attempted Murder and Possession with intent to distribute. Gotta love rappers. But He spent so much money in my studio I really wish he was home. the funny thing is he looked like a abercrombie and fitch model. Tall, white, good looking guy but under that he was a evil evil dude.

                            It's a long story and I'd have to break the religious discussion rules to tell it.

                              I've been working since about April at a grocery store and I saved up a lot of cash. I didn't buy too much with a few splurges here and there as I also had to pay some bills. Money from work, scholarship money and cash I got for Christmas all helped out and I finally ordered the DVX today. I just think about all those days, putting stuff back on the shelves at my store and thinking it'd pay off at some point. Felt pretty good!
