question

Does this package come with any battery/batteries or recording media, (such as Memory Card) for the Sony PMW-200 camera? Also I noticed that some of the included items, (such as the Vegas Pro 12 Edit) have newer versions, (Vegas Pro13 Edit) available. Is it possible to upgrade items such as software or any potentially eligible hardware to the most current version/model available? Lastly do you offer any sort of student discount for this or any other products you carry? Thank you
Asked by: Anonymous
The kit is assembled by Sony and the software is upgradeable to the latest version after you receive it. This kit comes with one battery and you will have to purchase media.
