HPX 500 vx 550

is there a difference between those 2?

If yes - which difference?

Hi Uli,
I asked myself the same question and I got the information from an US dealer who sells all three (!) models: HPX500, HPX502 and HPX555 are identical. They are only labelled differently because of the different markets (Europe or Asia for example) they are intended for.

Hope that helps

- from Germany, too ;-)

Hey - cool!

Simply walk across the street to the Panasonic Germany Office - its in Wiesbaden as far as I know?

Kaku Ito wrote about his HPX555 - though regarding the different markets I wonder if there are really NO differences in the cam (some other manufacturers have region version rg. the analog outs (PAL / NTSC)).

That's weird because as far as I know they both shoot in PAL and NTSC.

Hi David,

it turned out that the different "versions" are simply made for warranty reasons ("europe" , "US", "Japan" etc.)

Uli, are you going to switch to P2? ;-)
