Summary: Sony produces some of the highest quality full body video cameras on the market. I produce commercials for a living, and this bad boy never fails me. Take good care of her, and she will take care of you. Treat it like shit, and of course, delicate parts will fail on you.
Summary: Good solid small camera for ENG or, in my case, experimental and stock video, low end digital film production. Pro features are OK, would like better wide angle lens. P2 media, file format is expensive but superior to highly compressed masters if you go with FX in post. Brick of a camera.
Summary: I am now a proud owner of the Panasonic HVX200A. This camera has treated me very well since I've received it, although, there are some really important things to consider when making this purchase. This camera comes with many great features and great picture quality with a quick and easy workflow.
Perfect for the sort of things for which it is perfect...

Summary: The HVX remains among the best choices for prosumer HD camcorders. Previous reviewer was right to advise buyers to consider the cost. Realizing the full potential of the HVX will require at least another $2k worth of purchases, depending on what you intend to do with it.
Summary: The camera was in great condition and came with lots of awesome extras, though some unnecessary items. Card reader that came with the camera did not work, and seller was unresponsive to questions, but the product was quality and at a great price.
Summary: Our company has purchased four of these HVX200's and we're very happy with their performance thus far. We're shooting a half a dozen HD (720P at 24fps) shows and all of our users seem happy and impressed.
