The color is called Frozen Gray.

It is BMW's Space Gray, with a hint of Silver Gray, lower red particles, and matte finish.

Only available if you purchase one of the "Limited Edition" models, or go through BMW Individual.

In real life, the color is amazing.

Maybe not in Australia, but internationally yes. I bought mine online from B&H photo. Competitive pricing, shipping was free due a promo they were having, and it took only a week to be at my door.

If any of you have some video from rigs like this, PM me. Even if it is slow.

Keep forgetting to post up in this thread...

Finished my rig a while back now, and just upgraded to Carbon fibre poles - I'll get a pic / spec of those up as soon as I get the chance. In the mean time, here's one of my first rig shots, done on a half length boom (I was getting used to the equipment & technique!) followed by a picture of my set up (at home, in the driveway)

Pretty standard rig set up: 2 Manfrotto Avenger F1000's, 2 super clamps, 2 KARLite Lite Tite Swivel Adapters (to add some positioning flexibility), a 'magic arm type' device (this version allows me to suspend the camera 'the right way up', via the flash hotshoe)

^^ Isn't that a risky thing to have the camera hanging with all its weight on the flash shoe...?
