Hi James


Great review of the Panasonic HMC151. As a memory card camcorder, this must be the best in its class. The cheapest UK price seems to be around £2900. I am visiting the USA soon and I am considering purchasing the Panasonic HMC150 (USA version). The price in the USA is £2000 with 4 year worldwide warranty. Will the HMC150 function correctly in the UK. I know that the UK (HMC151) is switchable 50/60 Hz. The recording modes confuse me. If I purchase the HMC150 (USA), it operates on 6oHz (UK operates on 50Hz). How does this affect the recording mode at 1080,(HMC150 = 50i,25p,24p) (HMC151 = 60i,30p,24p). Does the difference affect the recording quality. I will be recording Wedding Videos. Can you please clarify these different recording modes.

Great review, would you share the "tweaked" settings the BBC engineer gave you?
