My problem with Elan, C4, and any other "automation in a box" systems is that when the keypads start looking dated or are not up to current client wants / needs, the entire system has to be replaced.
I have always found it more effective, flexible, and efficient to use a control system with various control locations paired with the necessary hardware. Be it AV matrix, cameras, amps, lighting, etc. It allows you to use the best of the crop for each component. Just a better approach. Problem is guys constantly under bid by bidding this stuff that seems as powerful on demo but simply doesnt have the staying power.
this is not right at all. If you have a control4 system from 3 years ago, you can replace the old keypads with the new ones. Are there faster processors now? Yes. Have any other major players released newer faster processors? Of course. This does not require an entire new system.
You think no touch screen would make a significant difference in price?
The HR2 is pretty dang competitive on the price. And with just hard buttons, how would you select sources? I agree, I don't think the price difference would be enough to matter. But even if it was noticeable, the confusion it would add back to the system wouldn't be worth it.

I thought it was fairly clear he was responding to you saying you are having an issue with your Panasonic camera. I am pretty sure that all Panasonic cameras are supported with the exception of one model that is a very expensive large camera used on commercial jobs. I do not know the model number of that camera though.
