I agree. Who really cares what it look like. I actually think it looks nice and solid built. That thing looks like it is built like a brick sh#@ house! You could drop it and it would bounce right back into your arms. I heard a lot of the same things when the XL1 first came out but look how that camera did.

What's the problem if someone doesn't like the way it looks? Who cares? It's their opinion not yours.

That being said, I imagine production models will be better-looking than the clumsy mock-up.

Weeeel... Unfortunately sometimes clients care. If your cam looks too "Consumer", it doesn't matter what you tell them about it's capabiities - they don't even hear you and you may not get the gig. I've concluded that the uglier and lumpier, the better. It would be great if you could buy some self-adhesive bolt heads to stick on. It says, "high quality, industrial-strength tool."

Face it, the XL1s is ugly as sin. But it sure looks professional doesn't it?

I agree.. about the looks thing that is.. who cares?? teh DVX itself was a sexy beast and this is just as sexy... IMO

as for the bigger and uglier it is.. well if a client rejects u for the tools u use they mustnt have seen ur work..

i usually show them fotage taken BEFORE i explain what gear i use... this way, they already set the minds to it before even caring how its acquired..

on top of that, ive seen footage taken from a shoulder mount which is realy nothin all that special.... like any tool.. its not what u use its how u use.. (penis' included.. lol)

I hope

Panasonic has enough time to fix the chassis.
It is sort of important to look good as a totally succesful product.
It could be Panasonic's strategy to fool Sony to make Sony feel like VHX200 is nothing to worry about at this point. We'll see how it is going to be at the time of release.

I like the way it looks

It looks bigger and heavier than the DVX and it has a nice layout of the controls and viewfinder. The handle attatchment in front is out of the way so you can see what you are shooting with your other eye and still attatch a profesional shotugn mic. The P2 slots are hidden in the back. It looks profesional yet compact and sturdy to me.

Get ready for a lot more insults about the Panny then it's looks... the same thing happened with the DVX and the DVXa model... everybody with a different camera had little good to say about it... and since they couldn't bash it on 95% of it's performance they'd look for areas to claim either equality or inferiority.

Let's face it. Panny is shoving their big guns right in the front door of Sony and Canon... again and again. As long as Canon limits what it wants to give us... and Sony maintains a fear of cannibalizing their own higher-end camera sales... Panny is going to spank 'em. And just the same... everybody who bought something else is going to shout "HYPE".

Well my DVX is 2 years old now and I'm still getting unbelievable audio out of it every week... and the video 'aint no slouch either.

Call it what you want but Panasonic's new cam is yet another category killer... in the 90's Sony ruled the cam market... what happened? The king is dead, long live the king... besides... I'd rather buy the new Sony Sour Grapes Cam.
