Varicam sub models?
on Oct 11, 2009 at 2:11:25 am

I'm looking into buying a used Varicam and have found there are several sub models of the AJ-HD27. There is the F, H and the VP. I would really appreciate If someone could steer me in the right direction as to what the differences are.

The 27V was the original one..
more of a traditional video camera without the film gammas.

The 27F - second generation...
some early 27V were upgraded to 27F

The 27H - if you are buying a traditional tape based varicam
this is the one to get.... try to pick the a more recent
manufacture date... you can tell by serial number
the first few characters will be a letter and 2 numbers.

for example B06 - That would be February 2006

The newer the camera and the lower the hours... the better..

But... Panasonic just announced a special price on a
P2 based 2700 Varicam... 19,950? with trade in..
This would be the best option..

all the features of a traditional Varicam - plus 10-Bit
AVC-Intra recording....

contact the guys at http://www.MCCOM.TV - they have units in stock..
They may also have used Tape Varicams also...

We sold all our tape based - and bought 2700's and 3700's

Good luck..

Thanks Gary. Very concise and informative. I actually got through the entire post before my ADD kicked in.
