Which camera, in your opinion do you think is better and, why do you think it's better?

hvx200a OR AG-HMC150?

I'm going to buy one of the two cameras, and would greatly appreciate any comments!

Better for what? Personally I don't like any of the Panasonic camcorders right out of the box. They need some tweaking. Were I to buy, now, for an "all around," i'd look into the AF100, as that "35mm" look is desirable now. That is, assuming, you're doing narrative stuff.

Better for filming. Outdoors, indoors, day light, night, ect.

Good sounds, clear look, ect

I am going to film narratives.

Yes, but the "look," is just shallow DoF. Remember those bygone days of the RedRock!
