Thanks for the clarification, Justin. I meant to say that it's not a diversity mic. Instead I said it's not dual-channel.
Cow Magazine Article on the 500
by Steven Ludlow 11 years ago
After reading the article on the HPX500 in my newly arrived issue of Creative Cow Magazine, I am left wondering if there is a compelling reason to still purchase the HVX200A. We are in process of movi

Hi Steven, We have 2 500's and will be adding a 170 as soon as it's available - as you say, primarily for the size. But if size doesn't matter, and you are not dealing with budget limitations, I see n

HPX500 Backfocus HELP!
by Bill Thomas 11 years ago
After about 5 or 6 hours of shooting, I've noticed my backfocus going out and I can't figure out why!! I've searched the web and found various ways to set backfocus and even when I thought it was set

Bill, First, I would not rely on the LCD screen on the camera for anything more than framing. I would really consider a good on-board monitor, or if you usually shoot in a studio environment, then Ado
HVX-200A vs. the HPX-170
by Peter Matthes 11 years ago
At first glance, it seems to me that the fairly new Panasonic HVX-200A has many of the improvements found on the HPX-170 P2 camera slated to come out in the fall of 2008. The wider angle 13x Leica len

I have 2 HPX500's, and now work within a total tapeless environment, so I have no use for a tape mechanism as in the 200. But I do have a need for a smaller P2 camera. So as Jan points out, the 170 is

by Steve Mathews 11 years ago
Does anyone have ideas of a place that I can buy replacement parts for an HPX500 We lost the eyecup on the viewfinder of our HPX500 on a recent shoot and I need to buy a new one.

I just had to replace mine as well. I tried the email route, but never got a call back. I found a number from the Panasonic website and ordered from the phone. It was like $45 with shipping.

Sorry, I missed this thread, but I am the one that had my camera's 56k problem fixed as the test machines, and I can vouch for the success of the repair. We had 2 500's suffering for the green cast, b
