Hi,

I called panasonic Canada today and asked them when the HVX200 would be released in north america... I know it was supposed to be fall 2005, but I needed a date.

The lady checked and said the release was ... MAY 2006 !!! Im like.. no way.. they cant postpone !
And she insisted that it was indeed the release date.

Please tell me this is not true... she was pulling my leg right ? lol... or just plain incompetent...

Ben

I spoke to someone at Abel Cinetech yesterday. They confirmed a US release of the camera for late November, early December of 2005. That's the last I heard.

Yeah, I spoke with Jan, Panasonic's product manager for the US, at RESFEST in NY today. She said late November. She had the HVX200 prototype set up at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center today (and maybe tomorrow, so if you're in NYC you can take a look) along with an HD monitor with some raw footage (in 1080i, apparently 720p wasn't in the prototype) and it looked quite good.
