OK, that sounds smart at least (probably a one-shot back). I had thought you needed an electronic shutter to synchronize with the back (is that only for multipass scanning backs?). The statement about prices eventually coming down is true. It all boils down to tooling/manufacturing costs and quantities. The more of somethng you make and sell, the cheaper you can price it once you recoup the intial startup money. That's why the first run of anything costs a mint.
