From late 1997, here is an unusual sight - not one, but TWO high-end Sony "ED" Betas (these are the ones that take special metal-evaporated Beta tapes and give 500 lines of resolution!) on a couch! On the left is the EDV-9500, on the right is the EDV-30F. These appear from time to time on eBay, and usually sell for close to $1000!!
