The camera also comes with a 6-pin locking FireWire port making it more robust and less prone to accidental yanks.
Other functions include a waveform monitor, histogram, vector scope and delete-last-clip button. Since P2 cards use no drive mechanisms, they provide superior resistance to impact, vibration and temperature changes. Superior Quality Lens The 13x zoom lens system features 13 lens elements in 10 groups, including three aspherical lenses. The use of low-dispersion glass reduces color aberration while a multi-coating process minimizes flare and ghosting.
The DSP performs a variety of adjustments, including eight types of gamma settings, for each of the R, G and B channels. It also converts the signals to HD or SD format. With a performance equivalent to the processors used in many higher-end HD cameras, this DSP helps the camera deliver beautiful images in all video formats.
It has variable frame rate features that respond to fast and slow action. All controls and system interfaces are designed to meet professional needs. Optical Image Stabilizer The optical image stabilization system ensures glass smooth images even with moderate shaking while shooting hand-held. Video Terminal x1 Output Composite Video: Manuxl x1 Output FireWire: Rated 4 ag-hps170 of 5 by snok from Very Nice Light weight camera makes beautiful images.
The p2 card workflow means no more fast forwarding and rewinding tape, you get instant access. The negative reviewer is referring to a lens mount issue with early cameras that was fixed immediately by Panasonic and made before shipping subsequent cameras. The camera has a rugged metal skeleton and may feel toylike because it is so light, having no tape drive.
P2 cards are indeed pricey but I imagine prices will come down if they want P2 to be viable in the future. It takes only seconds to transfer footage rather than having to go through and log all your clips and do a batch capture which could take up to two hours if you’re picky. The P2 cards are rather expensive manyal the newer ones seem to have dropped in price which is a relief on the pocket book.
The only thing I would really change is a secondary focus that would control the focus ring on the side so you could do manual zoom in with your left hand and focus with your right hand. Rated 4 out of 5 av-hpx170 Anonymous from Great Camera I work for a nonprofit and we bought this camera to produce commercials and testimonials of people that have used our services.

The quality is outstanding. It is great to get away from tapes. It has a lot of cool features like programmable buttons, extra focus options, and digital zoom. The few negatives I have found thus far is there is no usb cable included when buying the camera.
There is an auto focus mechanism on the camera that even when turned off still tends to auto focus, thus making the artsy shots hard to get.
I would recommend this camera to anybody needing a high quality camera for a relatively low price!! This camera expounds on everything great about the HVX, and eliminates some of the unnecessary fluff for me.
For the type of work I do, there are no drawbacks to this camera. From commercial production and indy film work, to sports and run and gun shoots, this amnual leaves everything at my finger tips in a nice, small package. Rated 5 out of mznual by Mac the Kid from A Feature and Value Rich Product I have had this product for a month and absolutely pleased with every aspect of this product.
P2 Workflow is fantastic 2. Camera Layout and Ergonomics makes using the camera very fast av-hpx170 efficient. The Standard video scene files are great and you can shoot quality right out of the box, however, for top work the camera provides flexible adjustments and tools to satisfy professionals.

Size and Picture quality make it an excellent second camera in a multi camera environment. I have recommended ag-hpd170 camera to fellow video professionals and would sincerely recommend it at this price level to anyone.
We do mostly action sports in daytime and this camera rocks with the pix indistinguishable from the HPX Low light, not as great. But fantastically easy to use — Worst feature is we had to buy 2 32gig P2 cards to get enough p time.
If you want a CCD camcorder that isn’t a massive hulk of equipment to lug around if you are hiking rough terrain and climbing up and down cliffs with your equipment, it’s a good size. You can shoot lightning without having the footage ruined by the rolling shutter of a CMos sensor. Im not thrilled by the expense of the P2 cards, even though the E-series cards are a fraction of the cost of the previous cards.
I am also not thrilled that the zoom is only 13x. Canon and Sony make much longer zooms which I would have liked on this. The camcorder feels nice and sturdy.
