Our government channel just placed an order for 6 GY HD250s for studio use. If Panasonic buys them out what is the likleyhood that they would discountinue them to have one less line of HDV cameras on the market? Should we stop the order? Anyone have any thoughts?
From what I understand it is the Panasonic portion of JVC that is up for sale. Additionally the last I heard it was possibly going to be purched by a US Hedge Fund, but that is not final either at this time.
The way I see it- the cameras are already built and do what they are supposed to do and don't need to be upgraded and supported the same way computers do for example. The great thing is that they have a mini-dv transport which will never be obsolete.
