a rocker is far more intuitive IMO, however if u have a focus puller at your disposal, or youve ever used a Fujinon or Canon broadcast lens, the throttle controller would be more intuitive for them..

if your shooting events etc, go the rocker..

IMO, if you have the budget for both, get one of each..

Major Help Needed... DVX100 part search

Over the weekend some friends and I filmed a short film for the 48 hour film project in the Washington DC area. During filming the Tripod mount on the bottom of my DVX-100 Broke in two places. The bottom plate is fine, but the actual part you screw the tripod plate into broke. This small piece of graphite is not listed on the Panasonic Website parts list as "Tripod Mount" I can't find anything. The closest I saw was binding head screw.


Does anyone know the technical name for this part and where I can get it at?


I need to fix my camera so I can resume shooting in two weeks on my film DEADLANDS.

I don't know if this place will have what you want, but I need to replace the eye cup on my DVX100 before I sell it and the PartStore was the only place I found that had one listed. I haven't ordered from them yet, so this is not a recommendation.

Focus question - DVX-100A

I have sometimes had difficulty getting exact focus with the DVX-100A, especially with fast-moving subjects. The focus-assist aid helps a lot, but I still find myself missing the focus point at times. I learned at the NAB that many professional camera operators prefer black and white viewfinders because they find it easier to identify the correct focus point. Does anyone adjust their DVX viewfinders to B & W to aid focusing ?

Need help buying a camera?

Just FYI, I wrote an article on my research site about buying a digital camcorder. I just recently had to go from knowing next to nothing about camcorders to buying a whole system, so I hope my adventure into the DV camera field is helpful to you! Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with.

I think you missed a whole area that is of interest to people buying for the future. HDV or HD cameras. Sony has some great HDV cameras that shoot great HDV, in 16:9, and also shoot regular DV. Go for right around $2000 with rebate (See A1U). And of course your artificial price ceiling left you with 1/4 ccds instead moving into larger and popular 1/3 ccd cameras such as the Sony VX2100.

buying dvx100b w/o accessories

It seems everywhere i look places are selling the dvx b with all these accessories. I am looking for a place that has just the camera for sale at a good price. From the looks on ebay, that tripod looks like it will just "get the job done". I'd rather skip out on the accessories and put my money into the accessories at a later time. Any helpfull advice will be great. Thanks so much.

dropped frames during capture

I can capture video onto my computer with my old sony camera with no dropped frames, but when I try to capture with the dvx100b, dropped frames every time. I've disabled every program on my computer that I can - nothing else is running.

Shouldn't the signal coming out of the two cameras be the same - a DV signal?

I'm captuing thru Premier Pro using firewire. I can't figure why one should work and the other not!

Is there some switch I forgot to flip somewheres?

Thanks. Bob.

problem solved

I found that the video I captured with the sony still did not play back correctly.

Turns out that my new high-speed internet cable connection was causing the trouble. even though the browser was closed, the cable was apparently still sending lots of info into the computer. It wasn't even noticable on the Task Manager. (98% of resources were set to Idle.)

Whatever the reason, I unplugged the cable, and capture and playback are back to normal.

Ya-hoooo! :)

Old AJ-D700

I know of an an old Panasonic AJ-D700 going cheap (about 1000 USD).
http://www.broadcaststore.com/dsp_im...me=19565%2Ejpg

It is old enough to have problems with the blacks (becoming blacked out) but was until recently used for TV.
I has been used for
Operation 1850
Drum 1590
All the same it seems very reasonable and might be nice to use in good light.

What I am wondering about is, how come there is no digital output from the camera (only analogue) and whether this is a problem.
