The first day of Nab and it appears that this year Panasonic has nothing to say to indie filmmakers. Going in to the show, Canon and Sony had already pre-announced several new cameras, yet there had been nothing from Panasonic. And now the show has opened and Panasonic has only three things to talk about; the first is the Ag-HPX600 2/3 Cmos P2 HD camcorder with 10-bit 4:2:2 Avc-Intra recording. At seven pounds, it’s described as the lightest professional shoulder camcorder, but it’s not really an indie filmmaker camera.

They also announced the microP2 card and microP2 card adaptor. With an Sd form factor, it’s touted as a way to reduce the size and cost of P2 media. But, neither of these products are expected until Spring 2013, suggesting that we’ll be seeing them for the first time at the next Nab.
