I don't think there exists any camera in the world today that shoots 1080p.

Those cameras are priced at 4X to 8X (maybe much more) than your target camera. You didn't specify your budget.

As far as I know, HPX500 only does 1080i. I have no information on HPX2000.

Absolutely, positively, completely, unquestionably, YES. The HVX200, HPX500, and HPX2000 all shoot 1080/24p. 24 frames per second acquisition from progressive-scan chips.

Sigh! My apologies. My eyes not working today. I thought I was reading 1080/60i ... where it is really 1080/24p. Terrible.

I shoot 1080 24p all the time with the HVX200. I was a NAB and shot with the HPX500 and it shoots the same frame rates as the HVX.

As is obvious from the posts here there remains, almost two years later, some confusion and doubt about the HVX filming 1080p or not.

I tried to find this out once from Panasonic directly. There was no satisfactory or straight answer. I asked: YES or NO, and was told to look at the statistics.

The stats are not clear. Many suppliers it seems to me deliberately have confusion in their stats and this whole world of HD is full of it. I find it very annoying and decided not to buy the HVX200, nor any HD for now and when some company stops talking about pulldowns, transpositions, interlace throw-over reverse spins, etc; and says: "Our camera films 1080p," then I'll buy.

Clear information could look like this: 1080i/60fps, 1080p/24fps, 720p/60fps, etc. No?

Sort of like the government, though, clear information and common sense often are hidden behind spin (although it nice to see companies produce fine products...but some companies do that and put out straight info.

Some companies even write clear and useful manuals.
