But then, add the cost of the accessories...
60K is better than 120K!
Comeback? They never went anywhere! :-)
For as long as I've been a videographer, I've had a love affair with Panasonic starting with my very first DVX100b. In my experience, ALL of their video cameras made beautiful pictures. Now I work with the AG HPX250 and 370 and have no complaints. Prior to the Varicam 35, many folks complained that Panasonic was doing nothing to compete with all the large sensor HD cameras by the other major brands. Little did the naysayers know, the venerable wizards at Panasonic were silently working in the background, snickering away the whole time while they built their most magnificent camera yet. Thank you, Mr. Matsushita! With or without the Varicam 35, I am your most loyal customer.
If this became a series, I would be an ardent viewer. This ain't no "little film." I was blown away by cinematography, FX work and, most importantly, right from the beginning I was drawn to the characters and very much want to know how their lives evolve. Maybe it's the characters that caught my attention. Thanks for your hard work. I hope you develop this further.
