Difference between dvx100A and B

I am considering either the Panasonic DVX100A or B for my next camera. I was just wondering what the difference was between the A and B models? Thanks.

not much..
The major difference is the body build, where the 100b allows for a more "bendy" lcd screen.. Im not sure if the resolution is any different though..
umm.. what else.. the major changes are for the EEC compliances, such as power, so many materials found in the DVX100/a so you wotn find any environmentally unfriendly components in teh unit, also by doing this, theyve had to remove the timelapse interval recording options, BUT when shooting in squeeze mode, its no longer vertaically strecthed as found in teh 100a.. instead, its like teh HVX, where the black bars are present and you can view your frame with all the technical info wihtin those black bars. Its a good way to utilise avaliable space and the DVX screen is one of the biggest (and sharpest) for a camera of this range

Also, with the 100b, u can sync through firewire... to be honest i think thats about it for the major differences.. im sure there are afew more, but to be honest, if u can find a cheap 100a, go for it, i dont think youll be missing out on much if u dont go for the 100b
