Testing DVX100/XM1 and buying DVX100

After renting a DVX100 (PAL) for a day to test it I've already ordered it. So hopefully I'll join you all in two weeks time when the camera arrives.

We did a head to head test between a Canon XM1 and DVX100, making outdoor and indoor shots. We both pointed the lenses to the same scenery using tripods and both camcorders where directly connected to a large tv.
In the video-mode of the DVX100 the image looked a little better than the XM1. Lesser contrast, more finer and details. But not a big world of difference.
Then we switched on the 25P (PAL!) modus and then we where shocked by the quality of the DVX100 footage. I was sold! On indoor shots with daylight coming from the window, we discovered that there were more details in the shadowside of objects in the room and also more details visible in the windowside of the same objects. More like a photocamera.

Ofcourse a couple of minor things that could be approved were found. Like the unhandy plastic power-switch and the distance for the thumb of your right hand to the recording button inside of it. And the big number of buttons on the bottom-leftside and front of the camcorder. Not always very handy, but that's just a matter of getting used to.
Comparing this with my current Sony TRV30 consumer camcorder I know that the practical side of the TRV30 (and it's reasonable quality of the image) make me keep the Sony for quick shots around the house etc.
The DVX100 will be used for projects and short movies. Can't wait to start the first new project with it!

Time Code issues

I have a minidv tape with a bunch of timecodes breaks. The timecode jumps all over the place threw out the hole tape which obviously makes it hard to batch capture...

I kinda have a brain fart but... how can i refresh a minidv tape with new timecode? I've tried laying new timecode with the DVX but had troubles when i jumped back and forth between VTR and CAMERA. I ended up with more breaks again as the timecode doesnt stay consistent.

set time code on regen and avoid switching off the camera. every time before start recording, hit rec check. that will bring back to the last time code, but after switching the camera off and on again, push slightly the rewind button and set manually to the end of the last shot.

Internet Camera distributors

I am trying to buy a DVX100, and I have been getting the run around with some of these online distributors. Like one sales person I talked to told me that ground-shipping form New Jersey to Dallas, TX would 3-4 weeks. I asked him if his shipping company was still using covered wagon? Another thing I have came across is the old bait and switch deal where they quote you one price then once they have your credit card number the price magically rises about $400.

Where is a good online store?

If you are in the Dallas area where could I buy it from physical store?

Thanks for your help

Matt

Puldown not work!!!! ARGG.

Ok, I'm doing some compositing work on stuff I jsut show. It was shot in F5(Normal 24P) and for some reason, I can't get rid of the interlaced fields which ever pulldown I use. Some shots would be pure progressive but soem would have fields!! I'm using AFX anyone else seen this problem? thanks
