Panasonic has once again brought a top notch product to the market that is going to raise the bar for the competition. The Panasonic AG-HVX200 offers professional quality HD features at a price point that is lower than ever before. Although you may still have to pay close to $5,000 for the AG-HVX200, the benefits that you receive are well worth it.

The AG-HVX200 is building on Panasonic models of the past. Do you remember the AG-DVX100? Although this new model is much more advanced, this is where everything started. This model appropriately brings high quality and performance to a smaller package and price point.

There are many features that make the AG-HVX200 among the best in the industry. These include among others the ability to shoot in both SD and HD formats, a range of frame rates that will satisfy any videographer, P2 media capabilities, and 1080p DVCPro HD. Unfortunately, the P2 cards are still very expensive at this point and since they are still relatively small you will have to frequently transfer footage to your hard drive.

Where the AG-HVX200 really shines is with its superb HD video quality. The quality you receive is something that you would expect on cameras that are twice as expensive. When you combine this with a wide zoom lens and several frame rate choices it is easy to see why there is so much buzz surrounding the AG-HVX200.

The biggest downfall of the AG-HVX200 is the hard to understand user interface. If you buy this model you should be prepared to take plenty of time to learn how each feature works. Additionally, the AG-HVX200 is a bit heavy for long term shooting.

Overall, the benefits of the Panasonic AG-HVX200 far outweigh the drawbacks. For this reason consumers will be sure to give this model a long hard look.
