    I am still using and I love it.
    What is wrong with it?
    It works well , it is still a great camera.
    Why should we be obsessed to buy the last camera if we don't need it? Hmc 150/151/152 is robust but light, has many functionalities, many options, wonderful ergonomics. Honestly in the last "fake" videocameras that look like photocameras I don't see many advantages a part great sensor and interchangeable lenses. An Hmc can be still useful, let's not be slave of obsession to be updated with last fantastic product.

    Bought mine new and still using it for legal work, e.g. Day in the Life and video settlement brochures, (I rarely take on deps), and other occasional work. With the legal field being slow to need the latest tech like 4k or more, I'm not likely to give mine up soon. When I need a 2nd camera, I still use my HVX, even though it doesn't provide date/time stamp.

    Just shot another event with a couple HMC150s. Also used the AC90A. The AC90A really reminds me how lacking the 150s look in outdoor 1080p footage, yet how nice it is to have sufficient built-in ND.

    My HMC-150 is still going strong. Last real camera with a CCD (that's affordable).

    Dropped the HMC-40 and it was toast. Battery holder area broke.

    Whoa, it's December 2020, still using the HMC-150!

    Just looked at the B&H website. Looks like mild improvements on the CMOS cameras, but no new imaging chips.

    I'm still using 3 of them. But mainly just for low and lowish budget events. Still love CCD but man, these cams look really low res nowadays.
