Panasonic debuts MiniDV camcorder
The Panasonic AG-DVX100B camcorder allows camera-to-camera time-code synchronization and user-settable file transfer over IEEE 1394.
Panasonic has introduced the AG-DVX100B 24p/30p/60i MiniDV camcorder, a successor to its AG-DVX100A and AG-DVX100 models.
The AG-DVX100B is RoHS-compliant, meaning its virtually free of lead, arsenic and other hazardous substances. Compliance with the RoHS directive becomes mandatory in July 2006 in Europe.
The 4lb, handheld camcorder also allows camera-to-camera time-code synchronization and user-settable file transfer over IEEE 1394, facilitating the AG-DVX100B’s use in simultaneous, multi-camera shoots.
Other new features include 16:9 letter-box display mode on the electronic viewfinder (EVF) and a 3.5in color LCD monitor for distortion-free Squeeze Mode or Anamorphic Display; remote control of focus and iris (wired) when mounted on a jib or tripod; single button character off for LCD and EVF displays; improved video S/N for better low light recording; and higher resolution LCD (210,000 pixels) and EVF (235,000 pixels) monitors.
