My New Main Camera

 

We were using a Canon XF-300 as our ENG camera for our small TV station on the west coast. We use a Canon C300 for our beauty shots and we had a Blackmagic Ursa Mini on order for almost a year. After losing yet another batch of shots to the XF's...

pleasantly pleased

 

long time community volunteer shooter & editor. Local school productions, live concerts & events. Like driving a Lexus after using my hmc 40p for years-greatly improved low light & picture quality. Works smoothly( zoom a little touchy, but hopefully I...

Awesome camcoder

 

I really liked the fact that this camcorder has 4/3 sensor...can get really good shallow DOF shots....I really dont like when f stops move from 2.8 to 4.5 when zoom in...I wish this has constant f-stops all the way....

Camera has potential

 

Nice zoom. Great features. I am not completely satisfied with the low-light capabilities. It seems more grainy even then my Panasonic GH4. I wish it had the GH4's preset looks too instead of the ones that come with it. Also heavier than my AG-AC160 so...

A dependable video workhorse tool.

 

This is an excellent tool for shooting most video. Incredibly sharp lens married together with a sensor that has the right amount of Bokeh. It makes sense for the individual that is shooting at events and doesn't want a crazy amount of Bokeh so things...

LCD Panel Cutting In and Out on delivery- bummer

 

Just received my DVX200. Opened the box powered it on and flipped out the LCD viewfinder and it immediately began to cut in and out of black when camera was moved. I imagine there is a loose connection somewhere. So much for Panasonic's Quality...
