Panasonic's AG-HPX250 P2 camcorder is now BBC approved for HD production. It is named in the HD Handheld category, a list that comprises only five cameras. Of these, the HPX250 is one of only three that are authorised for on-board capture, rather than needing an external recorder.

Weighing only 2.5 kg and designed to be highly portable, the HPX250 packs advanced features into its compact body: its 3x 1/3" sensors capture full 1920 x 1080 10 bit 4:2:2 video, recording to the AVC-Intra codec up-to 100 Mb/s on Panasonic P2 cards. Other features include best in class low light performance, variable frame rate shooting and 22x zoom lens that offers the 35mm equivalent of 28mm to 616mm.
