There is a new show on MTV called Jungleboyz or Wildidiots or dumb stupid genious's...
Anyway, in this weeks Entertainment Wekkly there is a pictureof ole Stevo holding the DVX.
I watched it tonight and the footage looks like the DVX.
These guys jumped into the water with a Great White. Damn fools.

yea, i heard it's a dvx too.
the show sucked compared to viva la bam, which had me laughing my ass off when i wasn't even paying attention to it.
they made steve-o and chris pontius read from a script for pretty much 3/4 of the show, and there is an attempt to make it educational.....not funny...
the whole show is in widescreen, so did they use an anamorphic adapter? and if so, which one?

I doesn't look anastyle. I think it's just 16:9 (adding black bars).
The show isn't bad, per se.
It just cracks me up what they do. It's like you watch just to see if the Shark will eat them. On that note, with the DVX, there is no reason we can't do 'something' and get it aired.

if you're sure it's not ani, it looked pretty good i guess, for on the fly shots and whatever, probably not 24, definitely not p....

I don't know what MTV is using, but when we (Poison) did a 30 minute special this summer for VH-1, they had one main uber camera for wide shots (may have been an upscale Panasonic, I don't remember) but all the moving cameras were DVX's. They had 4 of them.
I had just bought my XL1s and was pissed at how nice the DVX was. 3 months later, I have a DVX!

lots of shows on MTV is using the DVX. The was one show hosted by Suchin Pak about cultural identities entirely shot with the DVX. the Wildboyz show is all DVX and I think Diddy Runs the City was also DVX(at least partially, some shots looked too good). All these footages are Worlds beyond what any PD150 or XL1 was able to produce before the DVX came out.

Just to say, MTV Uk are also now starting to use the DVX100s on Jackass-like shows. Shooting is 4:3 and using 25P. Will keep a close eye on rushes as and when they come in to see what it looks like. Think the use on Wildboys has really opened eyes to the possibility of doing Gun and Run stuff in Progressive. That said, i think we might see a lot of crap in amonst the good stuff.

You guys sure about WildBoyz? There was one shot in there where one of the guys had a PD-150 or 170.

From what I saw booggerg was right.
They also did a thing on Britney Spears where she was jumping from night club to night club and they had a bunch of DVXs and it looked like 24p and it looked awesome.
On Viva la bam I think they are using the PD-150
and then we have poor ol' KStreet
