I presently have three GY-DV550's configured as studio cameras in my facility and would like to upgrade to HD. Which of my accessories are compatible with the GY-HD250?

The good news is that most of the studio accessories for the GY-DV550 can also be used with the GY-HD250U in a studio configuration, saving thousands of dollars in a multi-camera setup. Here's a chart that describes what you can use, and the recommended upgrades:
