NAB pre-announcements

Both Panasonic and JVC have announced new high end cameras; the Panasonic AG-HPX370 and the JVC GY-HM790. Both cameras will have list prices just shy of $12,000.

The AG-HPX370 represents a minor upgrade over the AG-HPX300, with the biggest improvement being the 1/3-inch CMOS sensors which should produce less noise and better sensitivity.

The GY-HM790 is also very similar to it's predecessor, the GY-HM700. new features include inproved studio capabilities a redesigned studio adapter, built-in time code in/out and genlock. JVC also announced a low light version, the GY-HM790LL, which will be released in the Autumn.

Both are outside of my price range (though interestingly, in broadcast these cameras are considered "low-cost!") I'm still waiting to see what Canon announces, and how it compares price and feature wise with the Sony XHR-NX5U.
