Having trouble tracking down info on this camera:

http://www.broadwayp...aspx?id=3716257

The price seems to go to be true, even without a lens.

Anybody know what the HPX555 is? It's not on the panny website.

thanks,

Further research indicates that it's the Japanese HPX500.

Still, that's a great price.

Wonder how different it is since it's the japaense (domestic) version.

ENG cameras usually never sell with a lens, like all higher-end film cameras. A good lens is not cheap either. A decent Canon HD or equivalent broadcast zoom lens is never under $10,000. This is body-only price, and is too cheap. Previous experiences with Broadway Photo make me think this is too good to be true. I don't trust them.
