Panasonic PV-DC1000 (1997)

Marketed in Japan in July, 1997. The Panasonic PV-DC1000 is an OEM model from Panasonic and was therefore also marketed as the PLUS DK-010. At first glance they seem identical but they physically aren't. The PLUS is bulkier and the Panasonic slimmer (especially battery compartment and lens section). Both cameras have docking station connectors but due to the differences in body design, the PLUS won't fit in the Panasonic's docking station and vice versa. A look inside the PLUS camera not only revealed that it was made by Panasonic but also that the LCD screen was made by Casio! PLUS is well known for office meeting/seminar equipment. Apparently the DK-010 was a one-time experiment. 

The PV-DC1000 was marketed worldwide and therefore had several model names, based on the market they were sold:

NV-DC1000 Europe
PV-DC1000 US
LK-RQ35ZZ Japan

In the rarities section you can see a limited, gold version of the Panasonic PV-DC1000.
