    Default What's your latest purchase?

    I've just taken delivery of my nice shiny new Rode Videomic
    and can't wait to test it out.

    Millsy has his (far more impressive) Smooth Shooter, but what have you bought recently?

    Here's your chance to boast about how much you've spent (or maybe how much you didn't spend!) on your latest gadget or software bargain.

    I spent 10 on a cheap microphone and mount to put on my camcorder.

    Do I win 5?

    Actually, I did buy a Mac Mini for my office, which I am planning on having a fiddle with editing wise to see how it performs

    Let me see. Just added two hard drives to my new rig (2 x WD3200JD for scratch disks), and treated myself to a new keyboard and laser mouse for the rig too.

    Was thinking about getting a HDR HC1E and selling the XL2 now I'm not shooting the weddings, but have decided to hang on to the XL2 and make sure I go out and have some fun with it

    Let me know if you're planning on selling the XM1... Can't afford it right now, but if you'll be selling it in the future then a very very small *maybe*

    No recent purchases, but I have that exact same Rode Mic. They are good for the money!

    COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc
    Sony TRV33e : Sony TRV310e : Canon XM2
    Sony Vegas Studio editions to v11

    Remember, there is always more to learn than there is to teach.

    It does seem to be, But I'm still getting a little 'Hand on camera' noise, even with the anti-shock mount. Still not bad for less than a hundred quid though. Going to give it a proper rooad test at tomorrows gig in Crewe. Results on Monday or Tueday depending on my sleep deprivation.

    I'm waiting for the delivery of

    Fujitsu Siemens P4 3.6GHz
    1024MB Memory
    2 X 250GB HDD
    ATI Radeon X700 PCIe 256MB
    19 TFT Flat Panel
    DVD and DVD RW
    Speakers + Sub Woofer

    Got it through a company scheme for about 40% of the shop price.

    Also, just bought Premiere Elements 2 bundled with Photoshop Elements 4 for 70 (after the 20 rebate) and I reckon that's a great deal.
