Thanks for putting the sample up, Tavis. My camera is MUCH noiser especially in the reds. I'm glad you have a better functioning camera! Since these cameras are mass produced I could have simply gotten a unit with a more lemony quality to it.

I got an email back from a tech person at Panasonic today who says the 'quality control' issue is not related to image noise, but so far noone at Pana has been forthcoming on just what the issue is. Obviously something major is up, if all unsold units are being sent back to the mother ship. I'll post more info if and when I receive it.

Thanks, Stefan! That's a good test, though it would be just a bit easier to judge the noise if you used a tripod :)
Anyway, my camera definitely has more noise than that shown in the clip.
This is confusing though, since the 2-pop forum deleted similar messages claiming that it was all a rumor and Panasonic denied there were problems.

So maybe it's with a sound issue. I just captured a sound clip that I think is distorted, can you guys hear anything weird in it?...... only kidding ;) . Strange about the 2-pop forums, maybe it's all a hoax and because we're prosumers trying to nitpick our $3k cameras, we tricked ourselves into believing the "problem", or maybe there is actually one.

Thanks for the info so far guys, I'm interested to see what the issue is to cause a hault and recall of 100a's if that's true....

On another note, if you want to have a link "clickeable" you can also post it as an image file with UBB code. Ex:

Ofcourse omitting the asterisks and don't forget the http:// !

I sent Noah a message to get information about what he heard from Panasonic.

Noah spoke to directly to Jan Crittenden who confirmed there is no halt in DVX100A shipments to dealers and that the rumor is completely untrue. A similar rumor was once perpetrated on 2-pop when the original DVX100 came out.

So until further notice, that's the official word. Unless you get update official Pansonic information, consider it without basis in fact.

Knowing Jan, as I do, I would completely trust her guidance. The DVX100A is outside of the line she works with but she is deeply in-the-know about the entire Panasonic Broadcast line.

Afraid she wears that hat too now. Got an email reply from her on a different matter a couple of days ago and her words were "I am now the product manager for the DVX100A".

So, guess she might have just an inkling anyway ;>)

Well good for her! I guess Stuart English, the former line manager for the 100's, has moved into other areas.

This is getting very strange..

All I can say is that when I spoke with Ted Castillo who is supposedly the west coast tech rep for Panasonic yesterday, he said there was indeed a quality control issue with the DVX100A but that he had not been told yet what it was. As for the dealer that I got the camera from who originally told me about the freeze on shipments and having to send back unsold units, I've asked him for more info.

Someone's not being straight, but I don't know who.

Actually I believe Stuart English is the Marketing V.P. for Panasonic Broadcast -- not a product manager. Jan is replacing somebody else.

This is turning into a muddled soap opera of twists and turns. You gotta respect the drama that only internet buzz can bring whether fact or rumor.

You're right about the drama, Bryan -- but around here, we try hard to separate out the rumors and concentrate on the facts. Thanks,

Your right Stuart English is (or was) the Marketing V.P. at Panasonic Broadcast, but I think (as I recall anyway) he was largely if not totally responsible for overseeing the new product innovation this DVX100 was forging.

In any case I appreciate both of these people. I do not believe that there is any company quite like Panasonic Broadcast when it comes to the nearly direct involvement with their customers (from the upper echelon no less) as we've see from Jan and Stuart.
