I am in the market for a camcorder.
I am eyeballing the reviews from the announced Panasonic and Sony camcorders on CES 2012.

The Sony CX760V looks really interesting with the new "Balanced Optical Steady Shot"
But I am mainly interested in both brands because of their AVCHD formats, able to shoot HD 1080 @ 60 frames per second.
I am shooting sports and 60p is great as a base for slow motion etc.

BUT, I am in Europe so living in the PAL side of the pond, which is... 50fps.
All camcorders here 50p.

Now I am thinking to get my new cam from B&H, they ship internationally and make you a quote on checkout including shipping, import taxes, VAT,..
So I did check it out and for the $1500 camcorder I pay $2200 to ship to Italy.

Now my question is if you think the $700 extra is worth it?
Does stock video shot at 60p make more sales than 50p, in an international market??

Any thoughts very welcome.
Thanks
Anton

I shot some surf video with the GoPro Hero2 and uploaded the footage to Vimeo.
A Vimeo member for the company cashforclips.net contacted me asking if I would sell him 15 clips for $100 or $200 when I supply model releases - which is very difficult because I don't know the surfers, need to find them and have them sign the model release.
The clips are about 10 sec long, HD 720p60 quality.
You can find the clips here:

Now I would like to ask what do you guys think of this price?
$6.5 a clip is not much is it?

It's the first time I am being asked to sell something and I now I am researching the possibilities to sell.
Cheers.
