Panasonic announces AG-DVX100 Mini-DV camcorder

Panasonic has announced availability and pricing for its breakthrough AG-DVX100, a unique Mini-DV 3-CCD camcorder with exclusive CineSwitch(TM) technology that supports 480i/60 (NTSC), cinema-style 480p/24fps and 480p/30fps image capture.
"The AG-DVX100 DV Cinema(TM) camcorder completely re-defines the Mini-DV camera, because it leaps ahead of the competition. This camcorder offers entirely new features and price performance levels," said Stuart English, Vice President, Marketing, Panasonic Broadcast. "The AG-DVX100 is carefully engineered to give today's shooters what they desire: a single camcorder that captures in 60i to acquire standard video projects and in 24p to add the 'look and feel' of film to their productions."
To acquire stunning digital pictures, the AG-DVX100 is equipped with newly-developed 1/3" progressive-scan 410,000-pixel 3-CCD imagers to deliver more than 500 lines of horizontal resolution (a 25% picture quality improvement over analogue VHS), low smear and flare, a low light performance of 3 lux (at +18dB) and a high sensitivity of f11 at 2000 lux. The native progressive CCDs eliminate interlace artefacts including horizontal jaggies and motion-edge tearing.
