The HPX500, like the 1/3" HVX200, has 960x540 sensors and employs a pixel shift.

Sorry David,

That would deliver a ccd that was only 520,000 pixels. The HPX is 620,000 pixel, 60 frame progressive CCD.

Hope that helps,

Jan

Very cool! The company I work for just put in their order. It will be interesting to see how the HPX compares to our HVX.

Jan,

Do you know the price range of all of the recommended lenses listed at HPX web contents are like?

Are all of those recommended lenses new and not quite available yet because HPX associates with the chromatic abberation control scheme? That sounds really hot.

These lenses initially are only available through Panasonic as we are the only ones that have a complementary camera. They should be available at the end of this month, at least in the US.

Best,

Jan

Kaku: But it'll probably take an additional month to ship them back to Japan (just kidding).

Jan, FYI - I ordered my camera (from Ables) and have been told that the Canon lenses probably won't show up before the end of June - which caused me to change my order to a Fujinon which, hopefully, will be here by the end of May.

Jan, thanks, now I understand why they are not listed there at lens manufacturers' site. HPX is looking really great. Because of it, I was more confident to come back to HVX200. Great job!
