I had a break between my 2008/9 and the start of the new season this month so it was about the only time I had a 3 week gap to replace cameras!!
Because I'm a "must be a shoulder-mount" person I replaced my 2 SD MD10000 Panasonics with the HD Proline HMC 72's (PAL) They perform great but I was in two minds to get the even newer HMC40 cams that are due out any day now.
However if anyone is considering these cameras just bear in mind that they don't use CCD chips!! Panasonic have decided to use 3MOS imaging in these and although they say that they have solved the rolling shutter with flash photography issue with a firmware update, the chips still unfortunately seem to have an issue with fast pans or fast motion where the image verticals are distorted because of the way the scan is carried out!!!
If anyone has considered these I also wondered if they would suffer from the dreaded "jello" effect that CMOS sensors display??? It would be interesting to know!!
