    Red stripe on the lens is very Canon-like...

    I for one will be pre ordering the AC130 as it sits right in my budget and fills all of my needs.
    If these are the same or improved versions of the HPX370's chips, I won't be complaining that they're CMOS (so long as they have the same low light abilities of the HMC150/HPX170). I'm also liking the newer layout of the controls... audio doesn't appear to be buried under the LCD, but opposite the XLR inputs. And dang that lens is long.

    Yeah, the AC160 is an interesting camera... could be real useful for folks doing budget multicam live events.

    So much for the death of 1/3" chip cameras. Looks like the market is alive and well.
    Interesting - with one camera design, Panasonic has taken on the Canon XF and the Sony NX5U.

    As I understand it is a real mechanical zoom. The cams are bigger than the 170, mainly because the lens is massive. And the red stripe - I asked if that meant Canon was making the lens for these (there was no Leica badge on the mockup). Didn't get an answer so we will have to ask again when it gets closer.

    They sure have - and to think I almost broke down and bought the AX2000 - The AC130 sounds like it will run rings around the AX as far as features go.

    I couldn't find any brand marking on the lens. (so, no mention of Leica either).

    1/3" sensors maxing out at 30fps?

    I'd give them $6500 if this was NAB 2005.

    Very nice codec choices though.

    I'm pretty sure this a codec issue not a sensor issue. DVCPro HD and AVCIntra don't support 1080/60p or 1080/50p. You need AVCIntra Ultra for those.

    1080 60 VFR maybe too much for the cache on the hpx250
