This 10 page brochure (PDF format) from the Japanese Panasonic site refers to 43mm.

43mm? Frank, any chance this lessens the possibility of the gs400 appearing in NTSC format?
Some North American dealers (NTSC) are already taking orders, as one of our members pointed out with links. :-))

Thanks for the PDF link, Tommy.

Great brochure for the dvc30, Tommy. And all in real English, not babeled. I noted the wide angle conversion lens listed among the accessories, which explains the 72mm filter size (exactly like the Panasonic current WA for the gs100) shown on the b&h site, I think (though with Panasonic's track record of producing unthreaded conversion lenses, b&h may be in for a surprise). Sure looks like a great cam. Can't wait for one of you to get your hands on it and let us peons know how it handles.

Well, that's a good reason. Lots more professional than mine: can't afford it!

And neither can Pokey!

Or me. :-((

Who knows, the GS100 may be the better cam, and you just happen to own one! Mind you, my MX3 is still good enough for me, and I don't see a whole lot of difference between the MX3 and DVC30---could it be that the DVC30 is the North American version of the MX3000? And 5 years too late? After all, all that is missing with the DVC30 is a couple of "0's," or one zero from the PAL version.

If only Panasonic would release a Special Edition DVC30 with native 16:9 CCDs so we could have both low light performance and quality widescreen. Tell me it wouldn't sell..

Until then the GS100 will occupy the spot in my new Lowepro Micro Trekker 200 backpack (red of course).

But how much better is the DVC30's "low light," compared with the GS100 (or MX3000)? I haven't read any tests. :-))

Good point. I guess they could hose up low light performance but my bet is that it'll be GL2'ish

unless of course you count the 0 lux infra-red mode.

I'm rather confused by the infrared mode on this cam. Will it be B&W or will it have the Sony Nightshot/Military look? The 10p brochure I listed has an impressive shot supposedly from the infrared mode.

Here is a pic of the DVC30 with the IR booster installed.

Yes, that's a great feature for solving the low light conditions of event videography. Perhaps if I'm fast enough, I can capture lost souls wondering the funeral parlor.

Haha, I see dead people!


I get the impression that the IR mode is B&W from all the literature i've seen.
