    I went in to my local AV retailer this weekend to ask about the EH50.

    I was told that the recorder was going to be released on the 8th of april (or at least that is when Panasonic are hoping to get stock!???!

    I was also told that upon release, the price will be increased by a further £50!!!!!! Apparently due to increasing material costs.

    Has anyone else heard anything like this??

    The EH50 is already out - I bought mine last week for £325 from a shop@panasonic store !! :thumbsup:

    If you look on the web you will see that this is available for around this price in many outlets. e.g.: -

    http://www.webelectricals.co.uk/cgi-bin/webelectricals.storefront/EN/Product/1038
    www.digital-point.co.uk

    I think the person you were talking to is either bulls@#*ing you :nono: or has not got a clue. :thumbsdow

    Personally, I'd walk out and never go back to a place like that (I had a similar experience with one of my local shop@panasonic stores where he said it wasn't out yet and when I told him it was physically in stock at two of his competitors he said "Oh that one!" and when I asked him the price he said "good question" - it was but the answer was not - hence he didn't get my sale.

    By the way - great machine and I have only scratched the surface of it's capabilities as just haven't had the time to really sit down and play/learn yet.

    Happy hunting.

    I hate to admit it, but I think your probably right.

    I used to trust the bloke. He has given me some very good deals in the past, but this one just didn't sound right to me.

    Thanks for the reply.
