    Just ordered a TRV33 for £320 from www.discount2door.com. Price has just reduced from £399 and is based on 60% discount on RRP of £799. Discount increases by a further 10% in approx 5-6 days and maximum discount available is 80% so, in theory, price could reduce to £240 and £160 over next couple of weeks. But this is only if there is any stock remaining!

    I thought that £320 was a good price for a camcorder that has received very good feedback on this forum (and is difficult to find) and did not want to miss out on this deal. It is £90 cheaper than lowest current price for HC40.

    Good luck to anyone who waits for the further price reduction.

    I've also been looking at this camcorder for a while and couldn't resist it!

    £322.98 including postage is not at all bad. It looks like it's coming from a company based in Arndale Centre Manchester.

    Thanks for the tip-off Kevhu, I'll report back when it arrives. :)

    Sounds OK!

    I wonder if anyone can comment on the accessories normally supplied with the TRV-33. In particular do they include one tape and a firewire lead?

    You will need an additional battery I have I think NVFM50 (definately 50 and V nf FM are in there)

    You will also need firewire cable

    Just had a similar email but this time estimating 5 days. :)

    This also confirms that they are now accepting new orders again but fails to mention the price increase. :thumbsdow
