Enter the two model numbers and see what has been said in the past
Those lists are always far out of date and have no practical use. Most of the equipment mentioned on those lists is no longer sold.
Consult BlackMagic for compatibility issues.
Try them both.
The 200A uses a much better compression scheme, but the P2 storage is still rather costly. The H1 uses inferior HDV format, but can be recorded to inexpensive tapes.
I wouldn't worry too much about those hardware lists. Base your setup around the processor. The next version of Premiere is supposed to take advantage of the SSE4 instruction set, which speeds up certain video tasks, so choose one that has that (newest 45nm Intels) and you should be fine.
Thanks for that update... In further reading through these posts it appears that both cameras are usable with Adobe but that the HDV format of the Canon has some serious inherent problems... I guess I'll go with the Panasonic.
Just look at shoulder mount versus handheld. That may compensate the format advantage of the 200. As I said, try them both.
