Shooting in Regen/Preset to optimize post production?

I am shooting a documentary. I have the Panasonic DVX100A. I will be editing on FCP4. I did camera tests - tried to edit and couldn’t get the footage digitized. After a bit of exploring, I found out I should have had Recording set up set to REGEN and not PRESET.

I did more tests, and it seems to be digitizing fine. Things now seem to be working fine, however out of curiosity, are there other settings I should be using for optimal post production?

(should I post this on another forum?)

Thanks!

LCD Screen Protection?

Does anyone use a Screen protector for their LCD screen like the stuff you can get to protect a palm pilot? Does it create unwanted lack of detail and thus useless? Do you have something else you find that works better?

How durable have you veteran DVX users found the LCD screen to be? ie: thin scrathes, mars etc.

DVX 100b owner Thanks~

Trail building screen grabs

I'm doing some behind the scenes for some outdoor trail building and it was a gorgeous day outside. I took a bunch of footage, then tweaked a bit. Here they are.
edit: Server is down, it should be up pretty soon.

Lens Hood for Wide angle lens?

I purchased the AG-LW4307 wide angle lens for the DVC60 and was wondering if anyone knew where I could pick up a lens hood for it.

NAB code for BH discount? I have 45min to buy!!

Sorry about this. I guess I just found the code by opening the link to it from Firefox rather than IE. IE brought up a more or less blank page. Firefox had all the cameras and their prices. Weird.
Again, sorry for the alarming post but am looking forward to joining the community!

DVX100B Tripod Mounting Plate

Recently I purchased the AG DVX100b and couldn't be happier with the video it produces. The only problem I've had with the camera is actually the way it is designed to fasten to the tripod plate. Admittedly it would be easier to describe the problem with a photo, but if anyone has had the same problem, they should be able to recognize the situation: The 100b attaches to the plate just like any other camera. The only exception is that the recieving thread for the plate is actually built into a smaller square inch metal piece that is attached to the camera itself with four, tiny (eye-glasses screw sized) screws. These screws seem hardly enough to even support the weight of the camera, and any sudden movements (flash pans) will cause the screws to come loose, or even cause the camera to fall from the tripod plate. Other than a jolt here or there, we've used the camera nominally. Has anyone else had this problem? Is this typical of the poorly designed 100b or does this sound like a factory defect?

Pana AG-DVC 200 - WB help

Since this is the only Panasonic heading on the forum, I thought I'd give it a shot...

I have a Pana AG-DVC200 and I need some understanding of white balance procedure. According to the manual, the user should set the CC/ND dial to whatever lighting condition you find yourself in....3200k or 5600k...focus on a "white" something, and hit the auto white balance switch. What about flouresent (sp). Set for 3200k, focus on a white card, white balance and hope for the best?

ANY assistance would be appreciated.....and if I'm in the wrong forum, I apologize.

Thanks - David Bird
