Panasonic AG-HVX200

 

When we last looked at Panasonic's AG-HVX200, its shooting flexibility greatly impressed us, but the lack of editing support for DVCPRO HD recorded to P2 card rather limited its usage...

Supports a wide range of HD formats. Captures rich, naturalistic colours. Good lens.

Better for filmmakers than studio pros. Poor performance in low-light conditions

Editing support has improved in the last year, but the Panasonic AG-HVX200 is still a bit of an enigma. Much of what made the camcorder unique is now also in Sony's PWM-EX1. The Panasonic's price has dropped, but it's still more a filmmaker's tool....

Panasonic AG-HVX200 review:

 

Superb HD video; a raft of frame-rate choices; supports solid-state P2 media as well as tape; terrific, relatively wide-angle lens.

Steep learning curve; noninterchangeable lens; low-res viewfinder and LCD; heavy for handheld shooting.

With its AG-HVX200, Panasonic raises the bar again, bringing us professional HD versatility and quality at a lower price than ever.

How To Shoot a Network TV Pilot With the Panasonic HVX-200

 

Whew! The pilot is wrapped and shipped. It looks and sounds great. We created a "real" network level pilot using the brand new, relatively inexpensive technology comprised of the Panasonic HVX-200 camcorder and P2 card system. It is my hope that by...
