Some pitfalls comapred to today's offerings, but very solid for many shooting scnearios.

  • Summary: I have been using this camera for 5 years now, and while at the time of purchase I would have rated it 4-5 stars, I must review it based on how it compares to other cameras on he market today so that you may make a more informed decision if you are considering a purchase. Firstly, it is an extremely solid Full HD (1080P) camera.

  • Summary: My HPX 170's are my favorite cameras by far. Solid, durable and with amazing video performance. These cameras have yet to give me unexpected performance. When you are on a shoot, It is nice to know your cameras are not going to fail you and deliver ever time. I highly recommend!

  • Summary: It has been my work horse since I bought it, once you learn how to managed all the goodies this camcorder has, it becomes one unit on you... It worth item to have it for those with high ambitions in the art of filming. Only thing is the P2 cards are very pricey!!

  • Summary: Am in the midst of making my second feature length film relying primarily on the HVX170. This camera is so spectacular it's hard for me to see the advantage of moving to anything more expensive.

Great camera for the up and coming Videographer

Klay M. Abele, Amazon

  • Summary: Length:: 2:02 Mins I'm a film student and needed something that was relatively inexpensive and came with the most features. The waveform monitor is such a plus for this camera. The focus assist is also another great feature that really helps getting the maximum focus. This camera truly has some outstanding features from its competitors.

Superb Prosumer Camcorder

PAHess, Amazon
21 June 2009
  • Summary: Length:: 0:33 Mins I absolutely love working with this camcorder. Having searched a long time for a modestly priced HD camcorder that had the same manual features I have grown accustomed to on my DSLR, I was delighted to find the HPX 170, as it provides a well organized set of controls at a price point much lower than that of similar cameras in its class. The HPX 170 and its P2 workflow work seamlessly with my MacBook Pro running Final Cut.

I Love this Camera

Stacey Cochran, Amazon
7 October 2008
  • Summary: Length:: 3:58 Mins I bought this camera as part of a technology grant funded by my publisher in order to film interviews. I have only had it for one week, but I love this camera so far. The learning curve has been incredibly fast, and I'm posting a short video I shot today with this camera as a sample of what I've filmed with the Panasonic HPX170. I love the wide-angle lens.
