Panasonic Adds Free 16 GB P2 Card With HVX200 Camcorder
Panasonic is shipping the new AG-HVX200
P2 HD camcorder with a free 16 GB P2 card (model AJ-P2C016RG) this month.
A single 16 GB P2 card will yield 16 minutes of DVCPRO HD, 40 minutes of DVCPRO HD in native 720/24p, 32 minutes of DVCPRO50 and 64 minutes of DVCPRO. With the HVX200, which has two P2 card slots, users can double record times.
The HVX200 records in 1080i and 720p in production-proven 100 Mbps DVCPRO HD quality with the ability to capture images in 21 record modes. The DVCPRO HD format offers users intraframe compression, where each frame stands on its own for editing, and its full 4:2:2 color sampling allows the image to hold up under color correction.
Along with the 16 GB P2 card (valued at $900), customers who buy a new HVX200 from an authorized U.S. Panasonic reseller will also receive a copy of “The HVX Book” by Barry Green.
