I'd also like to see an Operating Instructions manual (PDF) posted on Panasonic's website for the HVX200. Please post it now that the camera is shipping. :)

great line up now for lower end HD

Sony FX1/Z1 if you're on a budget and don't mind interlace

JVC if you're a filmmaker on a budget who knows how to operate a Camera correctly

Canon if you need 1080 and better glass on the front.

HVX if you don't mind the fixed lens but want ALL those framerate options and a good in camera filmlook.

A bit simplistic I know, but basically it's all good news!

Personally it's the Canon AND the HVX for us - best of both worlds.

Am working on it. Right now the only version I have is 20MBs, too big to email and too large for a download. So hopefully soon the publications guys will send it to me.

Best,

Jan

too big for email, but not too big for hosting, JAN...

plz do so, it would be very useful and even could help some of us making the choice of buying the camera, since the manuals explain a lot of doubts

I second that Alex. I have cable modem access, so it would probably take less than a minute to download. :: wink :: wink :: :D

This has been the most anticipated release in a long time in my view. I'd like to poke around the manual to familiarize myself with the "ins and outs" of this wonderous camera.

I guess so, just hadn't tried that... But yeah, it does show up now in Vegas.

But it won't work with a quicktime file that's been created on a Mac. Don't know why, but that's the problem. If I render a QT from the PC/Vegas using the Avid codec it shows up fine. If I download Mac-originated DV100 quicktime files, all I get is the white screen.
Yep.

I've heard it works within Avid though -- apparently Avid Express Pro HD users can view the Mac-originated DV100 Quicktime files.
Yeah, it works... I took the cheerleader/basketball footage over to my local Avid dealer and it worked fine.

Jeff's posted method (DVFilm Maker & the Avid codec pack) will let PC users get access to the raw .MXF files and convert them to Quicktime .MOVs. Or, alternatively, DVFilm Maker can output other types of files; if you had CineForm on your system you could output a CineForm .AVI, etc.
Yeah, I'm itching to try this out... The guys at DV Film say it will work. If it works, then I won't have to buy Avid (at least not right away) and I can keep using Vegas. I just need someone to post some native MXF stuff.

Actually I doubt Jan is too concerned about our ability to grab a 20 meg file; I think that its just larger than they're willing to host on their server. I just checked the color brochure and its less than 2 megs in size, so the Panasonic webmasters are probably quite frugal when it comes to hosting files.

Not to mention that *MOST* people out there (ie: their potential customers) don't have the bandwidth and/or the desire to download a 20MB file. It's a users' guide... It should be a B&W PDF, probably about 1 to 4 MB in size and the closer to 1~2MB the better.

Can you upload an MXF file directly off the card? or are one of the zip files on the FTP already an MXF?

thanks amigo...

The ZIP files currently contain Quicktime files, which won't play on Windows, but if you have a MAC, you might be in business if you have the DVCPRO-HD codec... Jan mentioned ealier in this post that the MXF files can be copied directly off the card from the CONTENT folder. It'd be great if someone posts the RAW MXF files.

It does work, but only partially. The biggest problem is with 720p stuff -- DVFilm copies the contents over untouched, and Apple's Quicktime player will open the file and play it at native 720p. But Vegas insists on the file being 1920x1080. So Vegas scales it up to 1920x1080, even though the actual codec data is 960x720.

It does the same thing with 1080; instead of reporting the proper size it reports a full 1920x1080. Not ideal.

And then, on a reasonably fast system, you'll find that the Avid codec running through the Quicktime interface in Vegas is quite pokey. Around 4 frames per second. A proper native implementation should be playing back four or five streams in full-screen in realtime.

Overall the workaround is nowhere near a satisfactory solution. It is better than nothing, that's for sure; but it's not what we need. Not yet, at least.
