    You can always run anything 3ph off of a rotary phase converter. I ran an entire machine shop off of one. To boot, you don't have to pay the hugely expensive rate for commerical power.

    What is 3ph on that? Just a focusing motor and controls?

    As long as you have access to 220/240v single phase you have pretty much all you need. If the loads are small (small motor, for example) you don't even need a transformer, just a spare 3ph motor to act as a pony motor.

    The one is Dunedin requires 3 phase for 10K of Xenon bulbs - with no logs taken as far as I could gather - pop (BOOM)

    You could rewire the lamps to run on single phase without too much trouble. Champagne brunches for the utility company management though. :>)

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    Ditto that. You can even find pages on the web that tell you how to make a phase converter, in case you are feeling adventurous.

    Gotcha. That can always be re-wired to single phase fairly easily.

    So am I correct in my math that it uses nearly 50 amps of light bulbs at 240 volts??? :o I don't think I'd be doing any dodging or burning without suntan lotion!!!

    I think Sean is trying to gently serve us the news that he went digital...

    Indeed, the end of an era. Will be good to start afresh, and what better than with the V35 etc?
