    Hi Gang (Thanx for all your previous help)

    I received a recent Ebay purchase from Adorama for a used HVX200A. I usually prefer B&H but was impressed with the cosmetic condition of the camera. Almost appears they possibly cleansed & buffed the casing, it actually looks 'mint' with 400 operational hours. I have 30 days to return it for any reason and another 60 days for possible repairs. This camera is a Japanese version (something they never told me). I've read there are only subtle differences between the American version and Japanese version? I owned several DVX100B's one was Japanese, (never any problems). Since I've never owned an HVX I just wanted to be sure this is in fact a '200A'? It seems (at first glance) the only identification is a 'NEW' SKU Tag: no. 915989.

    I called them and they said its definitely a 200A. From the photos I listed is there any other way to provide further proof (if neccessary)?

    It is unquestionably an HVX200A. The model # is printed right below that "915989".

    Thank You Barry!

    Now I can continue to test the camera and eventually pick up more accessories.

    Best Regards
    Mike

    Man do I miss my HVX200. I had one of the original 200s from December 2007 to August 2008. Paid $6500 new for it.. it's amazing how cheap you can get one now! Was thinking sometime early next year of picking one up again second hand. Enjoy the cam!

    It's been a long time since I had a 200a but I think you'll find the manufacturers label and serial number under the view finder. That should eliminate all doubt!

    funny. i have an hpx170 that i often say that i will take to the grave with me. simply because:
    - servo zoom
    - no rolling shutter
    - XLR connections.

    try to find all of that in ANY modern camera!

    the couple of times i half-considered selling it off, the current street price (if you can find anyone who even wants one) of about $600 makes me just decide to keep it.
