Over the last couple of days I’ve had an opportunity to test Panasonic’s new HD camera the AG-HPX250. Panasonic has taken the guts of a over the shoulder camera and placed them inside the body of a much smaller handheld camera.
The AG-HPX250 is similar in size to the HVX200 that I originally owned but that’s about where the similarities end.

The HPX250 sports a brand news lens from Panasonic with a 22x zoom. For a nature and wildlife guy like me it’s something I’ve wanted to see in a smaller bodies camera from Panasonic for a long, long time.

After using the HPX250 to film nature and wildlife, it’s going to be hard going back to the HPX170 that’s for sure.


And as always, shoot the ordinary and make it extraordinary!
