The Panasonic AG-HPX170
is a handheld P2HD camera which builds on the tradition and success of the AG-HVX200. The camera's enhanced sensor provides lower noise levels while increasing sensitivity in low-light situations. Unlike the AG-HVX200, the AG-HPX170 does not include a tape drive, opting for a lighter and more durable frame.
In this case "less" certainly means more. Removal of the deck translates into a variety of extra features, including a 75mm lens with improved wide-angle capability, vector scope, waveform monitor, HD-SDI output, a 6-Pin locking FireWire port, and 3 focus-assist modes. This package has many included accessories that are sure to help get users up and running quickly. Items include a 32GB P2 card, Two extra batteries, mini hood, shotgun microphone with XLR cable, and a camcorder bag.
