Panasonic AG HVX200

When shooting Digi Beta for TV in the UK we have often cut in small amounts of DVCAM. It's always gone undetected as it cuts in perfectly with the Digi Beta footage. We would never have wanted to shoot entirely DVCAM as it is hard work to make it look as good but in certain situations it enabled us to get shots otherwise unattainable.

Do you see this as a viable option with the forthcoming HVX200? It's 1080/24p but it's not 4:4:4. In theory it should look pretty good but do you think it will cut in with HDCAM for those hard to get shots?

Hi Paul
You might want to reference the HD High-End, HDV Format, and Panasonic P2 Cameras Forums on the Cow.

What you describe has been done on US television using the Sony Z-1 HDV camera. Jody Eldred, a highly regarded Director/DP used it in a helicopter to get a shot when the HDCam wouldn't fit.

As you say, the conditions for using it would have to be optimal, but it is do-able.
