AG-DVC60 various topics

Check out Panasonic's new DVC60. In a nutshell, it's a shoulder-mounted DVC30 with more on-board controls and built in XLR connectors. If you require XLR audio inputs, the DVC60 is a better actually less expensive than a DVC30 with the XLR option.

I heard on here that the lens isn't a Leica which kinda sucks.

That's an interesting point. The lens description reads like the Leica on the DVC30, but that brand name isn't included.

We'll have to see how it performs.

IMO good thing is that this cam is shoulder mounted and have very attractive price for some videographers who like to impress their clients with "pro-stile" gear. This cam is in fact DVC15, which was on the market for very short time. Difference from DVC15 is carbon fiber body which looks very cool, but is also very resistable and durable. I think this one will be best low-cost buy for shoulder mounted cam.

It should be considerably more robust than the old 15 or even the newer 7. It truely is supposed to be the 30 in a 7 housing.

It wouldn't have the cinema gamma as it doesn't have 24p.

The 30 replace the 80 which was the non-24p version of the 100A. The 60 will no doubt be replacing the 30.

Anyone else ever notice how much the 30 resembles the Sony DSR-PDX10? I own a PDX10 and have used the 30. The profile is really the only thing similar. The 30 has some great advantages over the PDX10 but - the PDX10 has far superior 16:9 native imaging.

I'm pretty sure the camera does have cinegamma and frame mode. Its essentially a dvc30 in shoulder mount body with xlr's.

I have a hardcopy of the DVC60 brochure here in front of me and YES in fact it DOES have both cine-gamma and 30fps. Check out the DVC60 press release if you need confirmation. Guys, please research the facts before making assumptions about what which features are or are not included. Okay, I'm through ranting, heh.

Well, as a Panasonic dealer for Broadcast, you would think I would know that wouldn't you. Too many products to keep up with. Still, doesn't make any sense to me to put it on there if you don't have a cinema (24p) mode.

30P is nothing like 24p really. I guess it gives the "feel" so I suppose that counts.

By the way, decent job on the XL2 page.

The Panasonic US website says the DVC60 doesn't have Cinegamma, but I'm sure the brochure is more reliable. The Pana websites weren't right about most of the stuff they had up about the GS400 at first either.

AAAAAHHH! DVC60 brochure will not open!

I've been trying to download the DVC60 brochure from the Panasonic website for weeks and every time I try I get an error message. I've even updated to the latest version of Acrobat. Will someone who has it just email it to me?

For some reason their link for the DVC60 brochure is broken.

I just copied the URL for the DVC30 brochure and changed the name to DVC60 and it works fine.

You can right on the link below and save a copy locally.

Does anyone have a DVC60?

The price on the DVC60 has dropped at B&H to 2150... I'm actually temped to get one, since it seems like such a great deal. My only question about the camera is: Are there any "detail" or "sharpness" controls in the menu? I know it has cine-like gamma, but it would kinda suck if the camera still had that over-sharpened video look.

If anyone knows of any stills from the DVC60, please let me know.
