Hi Jason,

Maybe this will help (it's a list of changes...)
https://eww.pavc.pan...fo/ibc/132.html

The most notable, I think, is the remote iris control (being the only "fixed lens" MiniDV camera with this feature) and a few other software updates, like correct aspect ratio in viewfinder when using the anamorphic adapter (I think...)

Basically, it's a minor revision... So, same 4x3 as the DVX100. No native 16x9.

Hope this helps.

I beg to differ!

Functionally the AGDVX100B is the same camera as the A. Some of the changes
include:

Recessed Picture/Scene mode wheel, fixed detent feature.

Increased travel on LCD screen.. bends forward.

Camera base that holds the tripod mounting holes is now exposed, can be
replaced if you strip the threads.

New tape drive carriage to conform to Environmental regulations.

Stronger door latches.

Ability to turn off ALL the displays in the viewfinder by holding down the
"Display" button for a few seconds.

LCD display switchable aspect ratio. Normal 4:3 switched in menu to 16:9.

As for pricing, we haven't set a price yet, but stay tuned to www.dvcpro.ca
for the latest product information.

I wonder if any of the software upgrades could be applied to 100a units by an authorized service rep?

well the dvx100b is officially released, haven't read anything about performance or any hands on comparisons between it and previous versions though.

Hi,

I can't help but feel that you'd have to be spectacularly thumb-fingered to strip the 1/4" Whitworth thread out of a DVX-100!
