There aren't any dealers on Ebay auctioning the HDDV-8800 right now. There is one with a starting bid of $99.99, but this appears to be a used one from the description.
UPDATE: Ebay seller clippercutie is auctioning the HDDV-8800 again, this time bundled with a 4 GB SD memory card. Starting bid $199.99.

Just wondering, if the specs say 2gb max will it recognise a 4 gb card & would the battery support recording video to fill the 4gb card?

I asked seller clippercutie about 4GB card use in the camera. Will let you know when I get a reply. Will also ask SVP support.

Although D1 video will use memory faster, my guess is you'll run down the battery before using all the memory.

Well my 8600 arrived a few mins ago & I am verrrrryyyy happy with the video & picture quality & the features & setting control is great as well. So my PVR & my digilife c330 are on the way to ebay, I also snuck in a bid on a Sanyo C40 which tracking says it will be here today as well but I think I will keep the C40 & the 8600 as long as the C40 works as well as the 8600.

Well here is a comparison in low light conditions of the SVP HDDV-8600B & the Sanyo Xacti C40.

First the SVP:

The 8600 did pretty well against the C40 in low light.

I noticed the same red streaks in my 8600 lunch photos when shooting beams of sunlight. The C40 appeared to have problems with auto-focus while the 8600 was slow with white balance.

As I mentioned elsewhere, Digilife is now selling a clone of the HDDV-8600 as the DDV-6000.
