June 02, 2006
Las Vegas, NV - Panasonicís DVX100B ($3,995) has gone beyond a mere letter change in replacing the 100A. The upgraded model, designed to meet the RoHS (lead-free) EU directive, offers almost two dozen improvements over the 100A.
For a close-up view of key refinements, WEVA NEWS MINUTE producers Bruce Himmelblau and Sue Lawson talked with Panasonic Broadcastís Jan Crittenden Livingston at NAB 2006. WATCH NOW on WEVA-TV! (Allow for QuickTime download).
The VF and LCD on the upgraded unit now feature higher resolutions, and superimposed audio metering. The menu system has been redesigned for greater user-flexibility. Other improvements include the capability for remote focus and remote iris control (with optional controllers). Scene files and time code transfer over FireWire. There is a slower middle zoom speed, and an improvement in the S/N ratio.
The DVX100B, a 1/3" 3-CCD 24P/30P/60i DV Cinema Camera is equipped with CineSwitch technology, CineGamma software, and an IEEE 1394 interface. For more information visit Panasonic DV PROLINE.
