Unlike the AG-HVX200, the AG-HPX170 does not include a tape drive, opting for a lighter and more durable frame. In this case, "less" certainly means more: removal of the deck translates into a variety of extra features, including a 75mm lens with improved wide-angle capability, vectorscope, waveform monitor, HD-SDI output, a 6-Pin locking FireWire port, and 3 focus-assist modes.

Good Things Come In Small Packages The AG-HPX172 feels much like the acclaimed AG-DVX100, as opposed to its more similar and larger cousin, the AG-HVX200AE. Reducing weight makes the camera easy to hold; at 4.2 lbs the camera is very comfortable on long shoots.

Professional Camera Functions The AG-HPX172 comes equipped with a variety of professional features usually unheard of for a camera in its class. Features include an HD-SDI output for shooting uncompressed footage directly to a deck or computer. The camera also comes with a 6-pin locking FireWire port making it more robust and less prone to accidental yanks. Other functions include a waveform monitor, histogram, vector scope and delete-last-clip button.
