For anyone who is trying to download my test movie, sorry I had to take it down. Being a 50meg file and having been downloaded about 60 times, I figure anyone that really wants to have seen it, has seen it by now. thanks for looking and sorry to anyone that did not get a chance to view it.

Recall- Fact or fiction?

I emailed Panasonic tech support about the rumor. I hope to get a reply and will post it if I do get one :)

Well, there is a test that you can do to see if what kevin was saying is true or not. If all of the dvx's are being shipped back to Panasonic, then nobody would have them, right? Try a store like B&H or another reputable Panasonic dealer and order one. If they are in stock then either B&H isn't complying with Panasonic's recall, or there is no recall. You really can't go wrong if you were going to order one in the first place. I really think it is more likely that Kevin just got a bad cam as I have had absolutely no problems with mine and have heard the same from many other people.

<<<-- Originally posted by Kevin Peer : 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. -->>>

Kevin, your dealer is not an authorized dealer and thus has no direct line to Panasonic for all of his inside information, he has none. Ted only reported that we were doing a QC check. We do that sometimes. We normally do a 100% QC on the DVCPRO50 product and occasionally we do a DV product. The DVX100A's number came up. That is all.

I hope this helps,
