Thread: Hello To All

  1. #1

    Hello To All

    Hello to everyone! My name is Ryan and I'm new to the site. I work for a small full service media and production company that specializes in production, videography, and photography. We use a Panasonic HPX500, a Panasonic HPX 170, a Sony HDR FX-FX1, and a Canon 5D MKII. I look forward to learning from everyone here as well as providing any helpful information I can. Thanks!

    Greetings Ryan,

    By any chance, have you used the Canon 5D for video? I'm sure this forum would like to read some experiences, if any.
    Relationships are based on compromises - behavior accepted is behavior repeated.

    Ryan (or anyone reading this thread) - I'm sorry this replay is so late from your original posting, but since you mentioned the HPX500 and HPX170 I thought I should let everyone know that I specialize in the broadcast cameras. Many users on this forum are using sub $2000 cameras - and I can certainly relate, but for those who are using cameras above that amount, I'll be happy to field questions. I have relationships with all the manufacturers, so I can track down someone if I can't answer a question myself.

    The HPX500 - very nice camera!

    I agree - the HPX500 was positioned well by Panasonic. But the new HPX370 is a very good alternative with AVCIntra recording. And Panasonic has a really big rebate promotion going that brings the final cost way down - they have to with all the competition out there in that price range. It's easy to get into a big debate about 1/2 vs 1/3 lenses or 4:2:2 vs 4:2:0 recording trade-offs. I think many people are either Sony, Panasonic, or Canon loyal - and it is difficult to give them a technical reason to abandon their brand loyalty. Not that brand loyalty is a bad thing, there are definitely differences between the manufactures that can divide customers. It reminds me at times of the PC/Apple user debates.
