Panasonic has announced a big brother to the HVX-200, called the HPC2000. 5 p2 slots and 2/3″ CCDs in a traditional ENG style body. Pricing won’t be available until NAB, but I’d guess between $20k and $30k. So, now we can have XDCam HD and P2 duke it out in the HD space. I’ll write some more thoughts on the two later this week, having recently had a chance to play with the XDCam HD gear.
