    Upgrading to HD camera

    I'm a happy user of my Panasonic DVX100A but customers are requesting more and more HD. What do forum members recommend in the 100A budget line of cameras? I would also like to move my workflow to memory cards and away from tape. Thanks for considering my request.

    Panasonic HMC150, I made the same leap last year and haven't looked back!

      I'd go to a GH2. I sold my DVX100b over a year ago and got a GH1. Everyone in my shooting group has moved to DSLRs for the quality and control we get. I love DSLR shooting, but that's a personal preference I suppose since I do know a few people who hate using them

        Thanks ctb1010. It looks a lot like the 100 series so learning curve is negligible. B&H has a good price on it along with free shipping. Any other vendor suggestions?

          Spec-Comm is a DVXuser sponser and has always had great service: http://www.spec-comm.com/store/

          I know they were running a special on the HMC150 awhile ago...

          Not sure if they're offering the free shipping, but I'll bet they'd match B&H

              I am loving my HPX170. Bought it with 2 32GB cards: $3900.

                  The DVX is very nice. I made my very first student film on one. haha it makes me laugh and smile to think about that little camera. We shot it using this shoulder brace:
