    Voltage problems are not an issue with either (just need a "kettle lead"), however, German one would be free of tax and duty but importing one from USA could incur both (plus fee from courier). This can easily add up to 30% of price, and can be nasty suprise.

    DVDO HD+ available at a good price here and no import duties or anything like to worry about.

    Cheers,

    Martin.

    Hello all

    I see Vince gets a Special mention on the DVDO web site :)

    See http://www.dvdo.com/res/unauthorized.php

    If your importing it may be worth a call to Owl Video (DVDO's UK distributor) to confirm the warranty/service position.

    Best regards

    Joe

    I got mine from Lenexpo (via Ebay). They occasionally post me special offers that are very tempting. Should I ever get the HD+/SDI upgrade I'll happily deal with them again.
