Hi I am new to this forum. I must say it is a great forum. How did we live without the web? My question is this. I own a Panasonic DVX 100 that I have been using happily for the last couple of years. As some of you know it is a high end prosumer sd camera that had a lot to do with starting the 24p frenzy that has swept the camcorder world. I think it is a great camera that creates an image that has been used successfully to shoot indie features and reality shows etc. Sorry...the question. Simply put. Is it obsolete? I have been considering buying the hv 30. I think the 30p feature is something I would like and use. I did read the camcorderinfo review of the hv 30 posted today and the review refers to blocked pixels when the camera is panned. This doesn't happen when the dvx 100 is panned and I am worried that this is a major problem that limits where footage can be shown...PBS for example. I am anxious to start using an HD camera and I would appreciate any imput. Thanks.
