Panasonic's first HD video product to use P2, the cutting-edge memory recording device that has the potential to revolutionize the entire production paradigm.

Immediate Startup and Better Data Protection When you press the Record Button in standby mode, the AG-HVX200 instantly finds a blank area of the P2 card and begins recording. It can begin recording immediately even when you're using it to preview video. In normal use, there's no chance of accidentally overwriting a recording.
