    That is really expensive for a camera. I see you are interested in cameras. Here's another site you may want to look at to see some more very expensive cameras.

    Way to max out your bandwidth... you must be using a terra-bit ethernet connection so that you don't anticipate slowdowns with HD quality on your "webcam" :P

    Great shot!!
