Panasonic AG-DVX100 excels in brutal winds and cold

In the harrowing winds and minus 45-degree temperature of the sub-Arctic, Panasonic's AG-DVX100 DV Cinema camcorder delivered an "amazing" performance for a Canadian filmmaker shooting a documentary on the upcoming feature film, 'Snow Walker.'
Vancouver based Comet Post Production used their newly purchased AG-DVX100 60i/24p/30p camcorder to shoot in the severe sub-Arctic weather of Churchill, Manitoba, Canada.
The documentary, tentatively entitled 'The Making of Snow Walker', will be included on the DVD release of the film, and negotiations are underway with a national broadcaster for it to air at the time of film's release in April.
The breakthrough AG-DVX100 is a unique Mini-DV 3-CCD camcorder with exclusive CineSwitch technology that supports 480i/60 (NTSC), cinema-style 480p/24fps and 480p/30fps image capture.
