    'SDI' is that ancient configuration that's been around for years - yes?

    Yes, and it's far better than HDMI in terms of the connection and ability to use cheap and long BNC cables. Still the industry standard.

    So the 'Resolution Stats' are not any better 200A vs. 170? Both still 1080 - yes?

    Well, sort of 1080 as it is upressed from something less than 1080 internally.

    Except the 200A is definitely better in 'Low Light' (Had enuf of that with the 100B LOL)

    200A is better in low light than 200, but same as 170 AFAIK

    The XLR inputs (always a nice feature with those Panny's) is the same for the 200, 200A & 170- yes?

    Yes

    Well then it gets down to price. (Not sure where the 250 fits in price wise - we'll see)

    250 will be a lot more as it is way more camera. Real 1080 and better codecs. Better lens. Better everything.

    The 170's are definitely selling higher.

    200A is probably your cheapest, logical choice.

    The HVX200A and the 170 have the same sensor and has an upgraded sensor over the original 200. See link:

    http://www.dvxuser.com/articles/hvx200a/

    Another article about the differences between the 200a and the 170

    http://www.kenstone.net/fcp_homepage..._brockett.html

    For equal money, this is a no brainer. As previously mentioned, IMHO, the most important thing between the two is the upgraded firewire port. Very many of the 200 series have had to have the FW port replaced. At the very least, treat the the 4 pin FW port on the 200 series with great care. The WFM is another biggy!

But if I read your post correctly you are lookin at gettin into HD as cheaply as you can while still maintaining a certain level of quality. In my opinion moving from a 100B to the original 200 will be more than adequate, going by what your needs are. Sure a 200A or a 170 or a 250 would be better but I think what I am seeing in your posts a 200 will do you just fine;). Just my two cents.

    Hey Mike,
    I shot this video on my HVX200. Not a lot of light in my basement but looks pretty good. Any of the above cams mentioned will serve you well.

    Cheers.
