Panasonic has announced the AG-HPX370 a new shoulder mount P2 HD camcorder to replace the HPX300 released last year. It utilizes a new 2.2 megapixel 3-chip U.L.T imager with significantly improved sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratios usually found in found in larger chip cams. The HPX370 shoots to the 10-bit, 4:2:2, full 1920 x 1080 resolution AVC-Intra codec and to DVCProHD. The company claims improved image detail and light sensitivity utilizes a 20-bit digital signal processor and high-resolution 3-MOS imagers, enhanced with U.L.T., which boosts the sensors’ performance to compete with ½-inch imagers. The HPX370 offers international HD and SD standards, including 1080p/i and 720p as well as industry-standard DVCPRO HD.
Very interesting. With F10 sensitivity it's looking pretty good. I do hope Panasonic will have a trade in program or upgrade option for those who have already purchased an HPX300. Especially since the only difference is the sensor. Jan Livingston if you happen to see this blog, please respond with that answer.
