HPX300- New Panasonic P2 cam with AVCINTRA

For those of you who have not seen this yet:
“Panasonic announced today the release of the new AG-HPX300, a 2.2 megapixel, 1/3inch 3-cmos camcorder. The HPX300 records to P2 in both AVC-Intra and DVCPRO HD in 1080i/p, 720p and standard definition. Featuring interchangeable lenses, a shoulder mount design, and several new features, it is clearly designed to challenge the Canon XL H1s and JVC GY-HD250. The AG-HPX300 will retail for $10,700 (inlcuding a fujinon lens) and is expected to become available in March 2009.

The CMOS chip inside the camcorder is newly designed. It features a on-chip chromatic aberration compensation, as well as dynamic range stretch, which reads the content of the image to compensate for overly bright or dark areas. Panasonic also claims that the pixel density of the CMOS chip is lower than comparable sensors.

The AG-HPX300 features a LCOS viewfinder, which includes on-board focus assist, audio monitoring and even a vectorscope. There is also a 3.2 inch LCD on the side of the camcorder.

Panasonic has also announced a matching studio configuration package for under $10,000.”
