Summary: The hvx200 or hvx200p is an discontinued older model. Make sure you don't fall for the switch and bait tactics some ebay sellers use thinking you will never know the difference, which was pulled on me when I was looking for a hvx200a. It's very easy to tell, just look underneath the viewfinder- it clearly states what model it is. If it dosn't state hvx200a its a older model or one from overseas.
Summary: I have no idea whay they are still selling this camera for $5400.00. I have used this camera many times since 2008. Every time I am forced to use it on a shoot I just keep thinking how much better cameras have gotten. The P2 media is way too expensive. Cameras now take SD cards which are 40.00 instead of 350.00. The picture quality is pretty good but not 5400.00 good. The HMC150 is so much better in many ways.
Not Cost effective for Amateur, but great for Pros

Ho scritto anche alla panasonic ma ancora non ho ricevuto risposta. Ho letto molti articoli in circolazione sullo stesso prodotto, fatte ricerche su internet, ma nessuno, dico proprio nessuno, POSSIBILE, ha mai parlato o si è accorto di un difetto, minutissimo, che è come un...
