Already used for film and TV program production as well as news gathering, Panasonic’s DVX100 series has now evolved further with the AG-DVX100B. The AG-DVX100B debuts as the industry’s first DV camera-recorder to allow camera-to-camera time-code synchro and user-settable file transfer. This allows the AG-DVX100B to be used for simultaneous multi-camera recording techniques often used in video production. Additionally, the new model offers remote focus and iris control for easier operation when mounted on a jib arm or tripod. The Black Sapphire AG-DVX100B offers the acclaimed performance and multiple functions of previous high-end DV camera-recorders models. In addition to superior image quality, high sensitivity, 24P/30P Cinema mode, and manual operation, it has the specifications needed for full-fledged professional video production.

  • Allows synchronous setting of time code values among multiple cameras
  • 3 CCD image system; 24P/30P cinema mode; manual operation
  • Wide-angle zoom lens perfect for small-room shooting, close-ups, and self-recorded interviews
  • High-sensitivity slow shutter (in cumulative) function
  • Professional digital video camera
  • 3 CCD image system; 24P/30P cinema mode and manual operation

    I was torn between Sony and Panasonic (the Canons seemed to have many recurring complaints especially with the decks), and after reading several reviews became gradually partial to the Panasonic, before ever having used one, based on customer loyalty and consistently glowing testimonials.

    Well I’ve never used the comparable Sony’s, JVC’s, or the Canon XL2 (some limited experience with the GL2), but as best I can tell without personal comparison this camera does in fact deserve all the great reviews.

    The image quality is excellent and in many cases looks about as good as broadcast TV video (nonHD), and the camera allows a tremendous amount of image control–manual focus ring, aperture (iris), gain adjustment, shutter speed, zebra control for overexposure, white AND black balance adjusting, daylight filters, etc. The electronic viewfinder can even be focused via simple diopter. There are six preprogrammed, but customizable, settings for image control so the user can simply dial in whatever setting they need based on the shooting/lighting conditions. So, for example, you shoot occasionally under weak flourescents lights–you adjust the white balance and the gain and the detail level accordingly, save it as a particular “scene file”; whenever you return to that same location or a similar shooting environment, you can click over to the saved settings in an instant and start recording. The first four are factory set for video 60 frames; the last two are 24 fps for a more film-like quality, which this camera handles beautifully.

    What actually sold me on the camera, in terms of hardware, were the two XLR jacks–comparably priced models didn’t seem to offer this. The XLR jacks allow the user to attach professional shotgun mics and bypass the mediocre factory one, taking fuller advantage of 16bit 48khz stereo recording. I use a fairly inexpensive AZDEN mic and the improvement in sound quality is tremendous. If you were willing to invest in finer mics the audio quality would be better still. Having two XLR inputs means that in addition to recording live audio (like a mic) you can also mix in input from another pre-recorded source–all in the camera!

    The lens by Leica is also impressive–it is a bit wide and is not interchangeable (although I believe there is an adaptive telephoto for $$$). I prefer shooting wide but if you have need a wide selection of lenses or don’t enjoy the look of wide angle look to Canon.

    The drawbacks are minor–the camera is rather cumbersome–and would certainly be tiresome for handheld use as it isn’t designed for shoulder-mounted use. I shoot almost exclusively indoors with a tripod and so neither of these issues are relevant for me. Also irrelevant for me are reviews I’ve read which have indicated lackluster battery performance–again shooting indoors I always have it plugged in and thus haven’t noticed any battery problems. The little menu joystick control button used to toggle the menu screens, as well as the VCR playback options, can be frustrating when you’re tired, but that is an extremely trivial concern really.

    This camera is expensive, even in the $1500+ prosumer class it tends more to professional range, but I feel it is a great value considering what a fine piece of equipment it is and the wealth of features it offers. It is much much more than enough camera for the consumer and probably a little more than I need actually–I’ve used mine for a few months and I’m still learning how to wring better and better shooting from it. Once you’ve used it for a while it becomes clear why this particular model maintains a devoted following. If I have to replace this camera–provided I can afford to–the next camera would definitely be a Panasonic and probably be its big HD brother the HVX.

    The DVX 100b is cheaper than the XL2 but you get more features. Aside from the compact and built in XLR ports, you get an optional flip out view finder which the XL2 doesn’t offer. If you are looking for a non HD camera i would suggest going with a camera that has an optional 24p because you’ll be getting your money’s worth and it is a awesome feature to have…

    Purchasing my second one as I write this review, April 28, 2008

    I bought my first DVX100b around May-June 07, and my second this April of 08. Impressed enough to buy a second one.
    But really this camera is a well rounded DV camera. Its about as good as you can get with out going HD.
    The shots are solid as well as the quality of image. It does not take much to learn the controls, yet in no way is it consumer level technology. Between the white balance controls, the light gain levels, and the 3 filter settings this camera can adapt to a wide range of settings. The color and clarity of the image is brilliant but where the DVX100 really impressed me was in low light conditions. I am a wedding videographer and I was terrified of the reception because theres usually very little lighting and the footage looks black. The DVX100b can keep a good quality image while in very low lighted settings.
    The only problem I really had was when I first used it, it was difficult to keep a steady shot. Still with practice over time it becomes easy to hold and have a steady shot.
    Above all this camera is freindly for those who have never used a pro camera before, and customizable enough to fit even the best of professional videographers. I recommend this camera to any videographer out there, I especially recommend this camera for those that are beginning and need a camera that can hold you together until you get your style down.
