    A good starter pro-level hd camcorder for film production under $3,000.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    At this day and age if you want to go Pro from consumer hdv camcorders this is a great camcorder to start with. Want to shoot HD movies? The panasonic hvx200a and hpx170 is still rated by professional videographers to have the best cenamatic film look even in comparison to high end models like the Sony Ex1, EX3.
    The hpx170 is considered a top choice for shooting indie movies because now it's closer to the dvx100 in terms functionality and weight. That being said, the dvx100 was the favorite by many indie film makers for film production in dv. Time to move to hd right? In comes the hpx170.
    The hpx170 lacks the dv tape drive the hvx200a has, but makes up for it with lighter weight, new ND filters, video outputs, iris control, SDI, component, and composite video outputs. Whereas, the HVX200 only has component, composite and S-Video.
    The drawback only is Panasonic p2 flash cards are still pricy. But that is made up by no lag time to start recording, which high end models like a Sony EX1, EX3 has.

    Excellent product that should provide many year's worth of video-making.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    I purchased this as my first high-definition camcorder. I own and I'm familiar with Panasonic's standard-definition camcorder, the AG-DVX100b. This made learning the HPX170 much easier. However, there's still a good learning curve to meet (at least for me). The picture and audio quality is excellent. It uses the P2 cards. The P2 format is stable and is recognizable with my video-editing programs. The downside is that the P2 cards are very expensive.

    far better than the hvx200

    It's thinner and lighter compared to its predecessor. Better image quality overall because of the ASA rating of 500 compared to the HVX at 320. (for those who don't understand that means the camera is far superior in lowlight conditions). The colors blow me away too, you can achieve some sick images straight out of the box. here is an example.

    P2 cameras are for the serious video person.

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    I use 2 of these at work every day. Now I have one at home. The P2 format is useful if you are going to do serious video editing. I wouldn't put one of these cameras on a consumer user's hands. But I sure do recommend them for people who shoot video for money.
