Panasonic AG-HMC150 Shoots on SDHC

Panasonic AG-HMC150
After nearly six years, Panasonic is finally releasing a true HD successor to the popular but aging AG-DVX100. The $6000 AG-HMC150 shares triple CCDs, optical image stabilization, and audio capability with the DVX100, but adds a variety of HD formats including 1080/60i, 1080/30p, and 1080/24p. Panasonic has confirmed a basic 13Mbps recording mode but hasn't given a firm number for the "enhanced mode" for "higher-level use." Hopefully it will be closer to the AVCHD maximum 24Mbps and show what the format is really capable of. It'll use the same SDHC cards you'd use in a basic point-and-shoot.
