Summary: Best purchase ever!!! I couldn't be happier! I have used the Panasonic AG HPX300 before so using the camera was easy. Right out of the box I started using it and it is great! The camera was already setup the way I like it and the picture quality is fantastic!
Summary: Panasonic used the code name "Sony Killer" for the HPX300, however when I compared it to the HVX200 with both set to 720P30PN DVCPROHD I couldn't tell the difference in the picture quality or sharpness of the image, so at 720P it is equal to the HVX200. At 1080P the image is noisy in daylight especially in shadows, and once you get it into a darker situation the amount of noise is just unacceptable.
Pros: Fits on your shoulder
Cons: 1080P noise, AVCIntra for now, Slow Motion, Viewfinder
