    The cost of P2 media isn't cheap, but it's just a small part of the overall system cost. If the cost of even a single card seems prohibitive, then you need to look at other cameras.

    Been with the P2 format for almost 2 years. with the HVX 200 and since May the HPX2000. I have 5 4g, 2 8g and 1 16g p2 cards. I love it with my Edius Broadcast NX

    HVX202 (or HVX200) is compressed using Panasonic's DVCPRO HD compression algorithm - not MPEG4.

    Before you jump in, please consider the cost of one P2 card - you see lots of people grumbling about the P2 card price.

    Excellent - thanks folks..

    I did read up on the everio and others agree that the picture quality is poor so I wont be going there, however nice it looks!

    Thanks for the advice, from what I have read, tape based (or P2 :-) is great the rest are worse (I assume something to do with mpeg 4?)

    Everio files work fine in Edius -- they just need their extension changed from .mod to .mpg

    The image quality is pretty nice for such a small rig, but I wouldn't rely on it as my main camera. It doesn't hold up to much image manipulation. The MPEG2 (not HDV) compression it uses results in some pretty horrific banding if you play with the picture at all.

    I would definitely try before you buy, or at least buy with a 30 day money back policy. Mine's going back today. I think there are less expensive models on the market with possibly better quality. The main distinction of this HDD camera seems to be the 3 1/5" chips design as opposed to larger single CMOS imagers on the Canon and Sony models.

    dvinfo.net has some dedicated forums for these little cams. Lot's of information there.

    Panasonic HVX 200 is terrific with Edius. Camera uses a p2 card for HD record. Edius reads the card like a hard drive...very cool. Edius has a p2 utility that transfer video/audio files into bins. Plus Edius works with video in it's native format. No transcoding like with other NLEs. Camera also shoots DV on tape.

    Advice on new Camera fro use in Edius

    I am looking for a consumer HDV camera to replace an aging DV one (PC330) I was liking the look of the JVC Everio HD7
    http://www.jvc-australia.com/JVC/mic...verio/hd7.html

    Anyone know if it works with Edius? - Its full 1920x 1080 resolution.. And looks like the Darth Vader of Cameras, much like Edius looks like the Darth Vader of Editors now :-)

    And any other suggestions? my other camera is a Sony FX-1 which I love..
Working...
