Another camcorder arrived today, the Panasonic AG-HPX250 along with Nigel Cliff from Holdan. Nigel and I go back a long way, he is a genuinely nice person and always has a smile on his face.

The AG-HPX250 is Panasonic’s flagship hand held P2 camera…

  • Progressive-compatible U.L.T. (Ultra Luminance Technology) image sensor (1/3-type 2.2-megapixel 3MOS sensor)
  • 22x Zoom Lens with Wide Coverage from Wide-Angle to Telephoto
  • Full P2HD Image Quality with AVC-Intra Codec Recording
  • High-End Operation with Multi-Camera Synchronizing and VFR Recording
  • 4-position (clear, 1/4 ND, 1/16 ND, 1/64 ND) optical neutral density filter wheel

As usual the picture quality was exceptional, we had the camera in AVC INTRA 100 at 1920 x 1080 50i, Nigel told me that the 250 is now BBC HD approved.


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
