DVC-30 out in limited supply !

Anybody get their hands on one yet ?

Panasonic states they are out in "limited supply". Would appreciate a review or hands on comments.

Need to make a decision between the DVC-30, PD-170 or even the vx-2100.

Tom

I'd really welcome a detailed user review of the DVC-30. If nobody comes forward with one, perhaps we can arrange it ourselves.

Chris,

Did you ever hear from Panasonic if the DVC30 used 72mm or 58mm front threads?

Regards,

Mark

Well, that didn't take long! It's a 43mm front. Hope this helps,

Anyone purchase a DVC30 yet?

Just wondering if anyone has purchased a DVC30 yet. If so, I am wondering what are your initial thoughts? Does the camera live up to all the hype? I haven't seen one in person yet, so I am anxious to hear others first hand experiences with it.

Ag-dvc32?

I found this odd comment on the B&H Web site in the Panasonic AG-MYA30G audio adapter description:

"The Panasonic AG-MYA30G is an integrated XLR input adapter and microphone holder designed for use with the AG-DVC30 and AG-DVC32 video cameras."

Is the DVC32 not sold in North America?

Could the DVC32 be the PAL version?

Same camcorder as DVC30. I did a Google search and saw it here (http://www.lofty.co.th/DVM_Magazine/dvm_magazine.html). Not sure of the country of origin.

DVC-30 Questions

Hi,

I was just wondering what accessories are available for what looks to be a great little camera. Are there any filters (UV, polarised) made for the lens?

My other option for a new camera was the GL2. How does the image quality between the two compare?

One more question, I noticed in the other thread the first post said that the ND filter kicks in automatically, but there seemed to be a bit of confusion or debate. Is this true, or can you enable/disable the ND filter when you want to?

Thanks in advance.

Matt,

I purchased 43mm filters, UV haze, polarizer and an ND filter (for use at the beach) and all work just fine. You should be able to get them from any camera supplier. I got mine from B&H and picked the higher grade ones for about $67.00.

The GL-2 is a good cam. I have used one several times and owned a GL-1 for 3 years. In my opinion the DVC30 is built much sturdier and is the better overall value. Image quality in my opinion is slightly better on the DVC30 but it is so close others may say they are about the same. I like the default vibrant colors on the GLs better but I think I can get close to the same look tweaking the DVC30's settings.

The ND filter on mine kicks in automatically thus my purchase of a ND filter. If any other owners know how to activate it off/on manually without manipulating the shutter speed or iris, please let me know.

Regards,

Getting a DVC30!!

...or at least i am pretty set on that. Here is what i am looking at for a package, all from B&H.

Camera with XLR: 2299.95
Davis & Sanford ProVista Video Tripod (Black) with F12 Fluid Head: 149.95
AGMC100 Mic: 164.95
Power-2000 3600mAh Bat: 59.95
B+H UV filter: 19.95
AG-YUSC100 Soft case: 149.95
Tape rewinder (SRW-62): 34.95

Is there anything i really need and am missing? Anything that is not really needed. Anything that i should replace? I would like to keep the price down as this is already approaching $3000.

It will be used for documentary/interview styles stuff as well as dramatic shorts.

Thanks!
