i have found a guy who can sell me his used DVX-100 for cheap, but my only worry is whether or not this model is obsolete. should i wait until an A or B comes along, or should i jump for the original?

The original version disables the gain and auto-focus features when shooting progressive-scan mode (24P, 30P) and doesn't have a 16x9 squeeze mode, just a letterbox mode.

Personally, I think there are things on the A or B models you will probably want. Preferably, get a 100B. The LCD on it is MUCH preferable to the others.

yeah, i think i'm gonna wait and get either of those. the more i look into it the more i see that with each model panasonic seems to be fixing things and adding better features, like a better LCD. problem is that the original is available to me now, and the other models are in the indefinite future. well, waiting has it's benefits . . .
