I would hate to be the competition today.

Actually - I'd love to be the competition today. As great as this HVX200 sounds, it's way out of my price range (I'm an FX1 owner), and it occurs to me, that there's a gap waiting to filled... Namely, there's a nice little hole in the $2k - $4k gap for a progressive HD camcorder without so many bells and whistles.

(go Canon?)

Yes, price is the thing we need to see now - for those thinking of HD and whether we can get this beastie within the range of the other HD (Sony HDV <shudder>) cams - Thanks Jan.

Oh, and yeah, did you just get married? :)

We don't actually know the price of the HVX200 yet. I would speculate on the GL3 fitting that price range and being HDV, but that is for Area 51...

Re: Sneak Peak

So what about us from Euroland - no 25p? Can we expect an upcoming AG-HDV200E? hmmm......

What?! There is an official rep from New Zealand on DVXUser, or was it just a personal email reply? Problem with the NZ version is that I guaranee it will be $US * Exchange rate conversion * 2... :) We always get a bum deal here.

Yes, DVXUser gets frequented by representatives from at least three Panasonic territories: Canada, US, and NZ.

OK, I checked out the forum, and thought, hmm that name is familiar. Turns out he is the husband of a woman I work with :) She rang him from work and the answer was "No more til NAB" ;)

WAIT WAIT WAIT!!!!!!

HOLD THE BOAT!!!!!!

I just want to make sure I'm regestering this info correctly. Someone put up this link . . .

http://www.whatsnewatnab.com/search/code.php?code=031

It stated (to the word) the following . . .


"Panasonic
AG-HVX200 DVCPRO HD P2 Camcorder

Unveiling at NAB 2005, the AG-HVX200 is the professional video industry's most anticipated technology breakthrough. This revolutionary, hand-held P2 camcorder provides 1080i and 720p recording with the production proven image quality of 100 Mbps DVCPRO HD. The AG-HVX200 records on a P2 card in 1080 in 60i, 30p and 24p; in720 in 60p, 30p and 24p; in 480 in 60i, 30p, and 24p either in DVCPRO50 and DVCPRO."


The link was using panasonic logo, so I assume it was an official Panasonic release. Am I assuming correctly that there are 2 different cameras (the hdx-100 and the hdx-200) The hdx-200 not only does 720 lines in 60p and 24p, BUT . . . the hdx-200 does all this as well as 1080 lines 60p and 24p? Am I interpreting this correctly? And it's all inside the DVCProHD codec with FCP already works wih like a charm?

Oh my god Jan . . . Please tell me it's true, please tell me it's true and at what price. If the hdx-200 specs I listed are correct, and it also comes in under $10,000, you have just destroyed your competition wilh a NUCLEAR BOMB. I WILL BUY ONE IMMEDIATELY.

Please comment on this Jan if you can.

Thanks,

Laurence

I'm pretty sure there's only the one camera, the HVX200 that does

1080i60
1080p30
1080p24
720p60
720p30
720p24

and a host of SD resolutions and frame rates.

The HDX100 was sort of an unofficial moniker until the information you quoted was released... at least that's been my understanding. And the link to the information was originally posted by Jan... so I'm pretty sure it's not some God-awful April Fool's day joke (that and it was released yesterday...)

Hi Laurence,

It is true and it will be under $10,000. ;-)

Best regards,

Jan
