Panasonic AG-HVX200 Review
The good: Superb HD video; a raft of frame-rate choices; supports solid-state P2 media as well as tape; terrific, relatively wide-angle lens.
The bad: Steep learning curve; noninterchangeable lens; low-res viewfinder and LCD; heavy for handheld shooting.
The bottom line: With its AG-HVX200, Panasonic raises the bar again, bringing us professional HD versatility and quality at a lower price than ever.
