You should be able to find a used DVX100 or DVX100A for that price... Look around the marketplace.

I have to agree with hiro that you should save and move up to the 100B. Having used the 100A for over two years, the improvements made to the B will make a big difference. The 60 might be a good camera, but the 100B should be a great camera. SAVE YOUR MONEY!

i agree

that is so close to being able to afford a dvx... look for a used one or just wait around the marketplace here till one with low hours pops up and snag that sucker

might cost a little bit more than 2200 but it will be worth it in the long run...

I also agree too as well. Save for a used 100A, or even a new B. Either way it will be MUCH better than a 60 (as good as a 60 is).

I'm sure the B is the Bomb, but I bet the difference between the AG-DVC60 and the 100A is far more pronounced than the difference between the 100A and the 100B, and if your budget is pretty fixed, then the current cost of the 100B will probably be deal breaker, whereas it is very likely that you could get a used or maybe even new 100A for just about what you have.

Thanks for all the Advice! I was actualy looking at this camera as a possible choice.
How many Hours on a USED ONE should I be looking for?

Now, does any one have any Video shot with this camera on the WEB I can see?
Please!!!!! Any Video would be awesome!!

Check the DVX screengrabs section in this forum.

people sell used ones with less than 50 hrs on them all the time... anything less than that should be like new

I'd say anything under 200 is fine--the closer to zero the better. (Technically I think it will do 1000's of hours, but I'd rather be safe. It seems there are plenty around with under two or one hundred, so hold out for one of them.)

You can get a used dvx100a with many accessories for 2200 on ebay! and some even have warranty

If it is like mine (100A) I used it only as a camera, playback into the AVID was done with a VTR. In two years of almost weekly use, had a little over 200 hours. That is really not a lot of hours. It also would depend on how it was cared for and where and how it was used.

I took care of mine, battery and tape out when stored, and back in the case with the lens cap on.
