HPX300 has 1/3" sensors, as does HMC150/HPX170, only CMOS full raster vs. CCD pixel shifted. HPX500 has 2/3" CCD's, pixel shifted, DVCPRO HD only, no AVC-Intra 50 or 100.

JVC 700 is HDV based, so MPEG2 Quicktime files or optional XDCAM EX, both are Long GOP 4:2:0, same as AVC CAM(AVC HD). DVCPRO HD offers Native frame rates, 4:2:2, I-Frame frame structure, but is sub-sampled to 960 and 1280 horizontal for 720 and 1080 resolutions.

JVC 700 uses 1/3" CCD's, pixel shifted vs. native HD sensors.

I would rather buy an EX1(well, actually I do have an EX1) than a 700 because it has 1/2" full raster CMOS sensors, SxS card XDCAM EX is built-in. It is quieter and better in low light than any of the other cameras, but has CMOS artifacts, lousy ergonomics.

If Panasonic came out with a large sensor(1/2" or bigger)camera with AVC-Intra 100 for under $10K, it would be a giant killer. HPX300 is not as good in low light, noisy, deep depth of field compared to EX1 or other larger sensor cameras.
