Re: new camera: Panasonic AG-HPX250

Looks pretty much like what I would expect from my 301 and 371.

Um... impressive zoom range? lol

Apparently someone wrote that if you watch in 720p there are no scanlines, though I'm pretty sure i saw them at all resolutions... but yeah, boring.

Now the challenge video is more of what I like to see.

Re: new camera: Panasonic AG-HPX250

No 1080P 60P? Was hoping since this feature is in Panny's high to mid level consumer cams (TM900, SD90) that this would be creep into the prosumer end.

Re: new camera: Panasonic AG-HPX250

Somebody explain: how can the XF305 compete with this camera? It can't possibly be worth 2.5k more... Can it? I think Canon should readjust their price...

Re: new camera: Panasonic AG-HPX250

You have a good point. The XF300 is only a little more but the SDI ports are the difference. Both have strong codecs with the Panasonic costing more to operate. 1 hour of P2 is about $650 I hour of mpeg-2 50mbps is less than half the price. The Panny will be better in sensitivity (especially in 1080p).

The HPX-250 should be quite a camera. The 160 looks to be a good value as well. I am surprised I have not seen a review yet since these cameras are so close to being on the shelf.
