I was wondering if anyone had opened up a C1000, and how it resembles or differs from my C3000? I just got my Seagate 8 Gb CF disk today (what a marvel!) and it occurred to me, if it was the same inside, if maybe one could buy a C1000, stick a hf hard disk into it, and get a C3000 out of it?
Or am I just dreaming?
This is absolutely impossible. The C1000 is missing critical hardware for the internal storage.
Other than that, I am told that the C1000 and 3100 are about the same inside.
There's a better deal out there? Oh well.. at least I got mine quickly, and there is a nice warranty. =)
Yeah, I heard that C1000 do not have the entire CF connectors and shieldings. But maybe that can be soldered on?
I got my Akita for around $346 incl shipping and usb host connector. Granted, I reused the EA-70 charger from my Collie. In any case, multi-voltage chargers is like MacDonalds around where I live ... you cannot fail to get one!
Matter of fact, I do have one that I used for my Diamond Mako ... so that doubles as a spare charger at home.
