A desperate plea... my friends son is 80% done with a college project and broke his Sony DCR-VX1000E while attaching a new lense he saved over a year for. \:\( I feel terrible for him and am trying to find a replacement. Ive suggested a new one but he seems to need this for continuity for the project and he just really likes it. Does anyone have one to sell by chance? I saw a few on eBay in Japan but Id rather look in the US first (both for speed and ensuring comparability.)
