Quote:I have just bought C8 Edge and a Hyperstar unit at NEAF last weekend. I can check anything you want or send you pics of the HS unit.

Quote:You need to talk to Starizona.
Quote:I'm personally interested in the Sony NEX cameras. They are really tiny and appear to work very well. There should be enough room there for a screw-in filter adapter to be part of the camera adapter (so 48mm format filters could be put in).
