    Probably not much, given the higher MSRP of the new cams.

    However, the MSRP of the HMC150 was about the same as the AC130 when it came out, so if it street prices the same, that will be about $3,200.

    I'm hoping it drops at least $250 to $300 on the used market over the next 6 months. If it's out of production, I think that's realistic and can happen. When I can buy an HMC for $2250 on eBay or in the marketplace here - I'll be doing it.

    I'd start getting interested in the HMC150 at close to $2250 also. Frankly, I don't consider it a true 1080 line camcorder (it simply doesn't come close to resolving that much image detail, regardless of recording format, yet does get pretty close to resolving 700 lines) - I shoot 720p60 mostly though, and I'd love to have an HMC150 simply for that, if the price is right. I just couldn't see paying over $3k, with the NX5 available at $4k, which has some pretty nice additional features and the ability to resolve enough image detail to take advantage of 1080 line recording when appropriate (not to mention the wide availability of cheaper batteries!).

    I think it will drop a fair amount. When the HMC came out the DSLR craze hadnt impacted as much as today. I think alot of people who would be buying a new Panasonic AG-130\60 may very well be going down the DSLR route. Of course I know there will always be a market for this type of camera (I have two 150's and a 40) but I think it is somewhat diminished due to people going DSLR. Having said that, the HMC is still a very capable camera and in the current ecomonic climate people may be very wary to upgrade.

    It's likely that the HMC150 will jsut fade away as a model.

    The DVX100B never really fell much past $2500 in the new market.
