Hi all,

I bought, on ebay, what was listed as an hvx200A but the model on the camera is an hvx200P. Did I get duped?

Thanks

Hmmm...I think the 200P is the PAL version of that camera. It is sold for less in Europe, and some people then ship them here and sell them here. But they ONLY shoot PAL formats...25fps, 50fps.

If you are in the US...then yes, you might have gotten duped. Check the frame rates it shoots to be sure. I'm not 100% positive, but I know stuff like this happens.

Then it should be fine. My memory might be lagging in the actual camera number.

But how do I know if it is the 200a?

Thanks so much!

It should say A if it is an A, there was a pretty big improvement to the sensor between the 200A and the 200.

I just looked at my producers camera...it is the original HVX-200...the non "A" model. And it says "HVX-200P." So I think you got the original 200...not the improved one.

So what do you suggest I do to verify that I may not have been sold the camera that was advertised? Check with Panasonic first and check the serial number?

I'd contact Panasonic and see what they could verify.

Panasonic is normally very clear on the model versions. "A" models have an A, on the box it will say HVX200A, if you have the box. If the camera was listed as an A model I would be contacting the seller right away.

He didn't have the original box. I have contacted the seller and he asked that I send a pic of the model number on the camera. I contacted Panasonic but who knows when they will get back to me.
Thanks

FYI.
200P refers to N.A. model (NTSC not PAL)
if was "A" model would be 200AP.
so 200P is NOT latest "A" version

I've just been through this for a differnet panasonic model!
