Don't know. I keep checking Pana's Japanese site.

Rumors are true according to the source who first started the buzz. Saw this over on the 2-pop AG-DVX100 forums: he was able to confirm this from a Panasonic rep. Also in the works is another version of the DVC80 sometime 2004.

Of course I'm waiting like everyone else to get verification straight from Panasonic - perhaps Jan could let us know?

If you find out from Jan, let us know. And while you're at it, ask her if there's a GS100 coming.

The DVX100 is not Jan's product. She handles the heavy iron, primarily the VariCam and SDX900. The DVX and the the 80 belong to Steve Golub.

I would almost bet that the "A" just stands for Australia, and that region of the world. My Panasonic NV-MX300 is actually a NV-MX300A - because it's from Australia. The ones sold in Europe have "E" after the MX300.

Well, the Panasonic DVX-100P stands for "Panasonic".

i also see theyve improved the Zoom Focus issue :)


anyone know if this will be a free update for existing owners??

This is a rumored, new model, not a firmware update. Get your checkbook ready.

Free? I seriously doubt it. But an upgrade kit would be a great option, as I doubt Pany expects current DVX100 users to run out and sell their cams on the first occation, and go out to grab the new A model. Realistically, offering an upgrade kit would strenghten their current user base and avoid any potential exodus to the competition if they come out with something new.
