I am interested in your rig for sale, but I cannot get close to $14000 for the value. The camera was $7900 when new and the housing would be similar. Of course there are other domes etc, but they are not more than $1000 each new. Given the camera is out of production and came out in 2006, we are talking about 10 year old technology? What is your realistic price for this rig?

Did you sell this rig? Do you know if I found a SPW44C would it work for the PXW-Z100 housing? I guess I could call gates.
