Cow Magazine Article on the 500
on Jun 5, 2008 at 5:27:31 am

After reading the article on the HPX500 in my newly arrived issue of Creative Cow Magazine, I am left wondering if there is a compelling reason to still purchase the HVX200A.

We are in process of moving from DVCAM to P2 and were looking at fielding a mix of HVX200As and HPX500s. Other than size, IS there a good reason to have both -- or if one can field all 500s, would you?

Thanks in advance for the feedback -

Steven

It really depends on your workflow.

The HVX500 has bigger imagers, a more robust feature set, longer record times and better lens opportunities.

The HVX200a has dv tape if you still need it and is less expensive.

Hi Steven,
We have 2 500's and will be adding a 170 as soon as it's available - as you say, primarily for the size. But if size doesn't matter, and you are not dealing with budget limitations, I see no compelling reason to go with the 200a.

We have a Varicam, and a 2000 and hire shooters who own the 500, but when it comes time to put one on a jib, crane or dolly, the 200 comes in pretty handy.
