Panasonic AG-DVX100B, 3-CCD Mini-DV Cinema Video Camcorder with 10x Optical Zoomf/1.6 Lens, U.S.A Warranty

AG-DVX100B - Eye Cup - Lens Hood - Wireless Remote Control Unit - AC Adapter - Master Series Tape - Microphone Holder - Shoulder Strap - AC Cable - DC Cable - Battery - Master Series Tape.


The DVX100B offers 20 improvements over the DVX100A it's replacing! Some are significant, some are minor, but all are welcome changes that make an old favorite just that much better.

The DVX100B becomes the first under-$5,000 camera to offer full-frame viewing! The new viewfinder and LCD show the full frame, rather than the overscan frame typical on other cameras. The VF and LCD are also higher resolution. The LCD panel gets a modest boost, from 200,000 pixels (on the DVX100A) to 210,000 (on the DVX100B). But the viewfinder gets a massive infusion of resolution, going from 180,000 dots to 230,000 pixels.

Finally, the VF & LCD now have selectable display aspect ratios! That means they can show either 4:3 or unsqueezed 16:9. In squeeze mode, the LCD now shows proper framing. The aspect ratio can be manually or automatically controlled, which means you can also use it in conjunction with the Anamorphic adapter and still see the properly-displayed widescreen picture.

The DVX100B offers the same remote focus/remote iris control that will be included on the HVX200. There are now 2 remote ports, 1 for zoom/rec (which is compatible with existing DVX zoom controllers) & a new port that provides for remote focus & iris! In the DVX100B they've introduced a new menu option which lets you choose which source the headphone jack uses live, or from tape. Choose live & the ECHO IS GONE! The DVX100B now makes matching multiple cameras a breeze. You can instantly share your settings with another user, or calibrate multiple cameras to have identical settings

TThe X100B has the ability to sync to external timecode! The video signal-to-noise ratio has been improved. DVX100B footage is noticeably cleaner, with less video noise. The microphone sensitivity has also been increased by 6dB. Display Off button now with the press of a button, you can hide all the information on the LCD & viewfinder.

Now with the DVX100B you can use End Search right from camera mode. The menu system got an Extreme Makeover. On the DVX100B the middle zoom speed has been slowed down so it's a smoother transition between the slowest and fastest speeds.

The LCD Panel's hinge has been redesigned. the VCR buttons have been moved inside the LCD panel (where the speaker was), & the speaker has been moved outside the camera body. The transport has been completely beefed up. On the 100B the Scene dial is almost completely protected, to avoid accidental changing. The DVX100B has a newly-designed, heavy-duty tripod socket. The DVX100B is fully compliant lead-free.

The DVX100B shows its colors with a sleek new Black Sapphire body color. The manual has been shrunken down aprox. 25%, so it is now much easier to fit inthe camera bag.

The DVX100B once again includes a head-cleaning tape. the DVX100B ditches the old CGR-D16 battery (90 minutes) & replaces it with the massive, magnificent CGR-D54, a battery that can drive the camera for nearly 5.5 hours.
