Me too and uprezzed through compressor the footage looked better than the garish images you get from an older cheap HD cam. The new HV40 probably beats it though. I haven't seen.

The DVX100 is a 4.3 camera and the only way to get a "true" 16:9 was to add a anamorphic lens adapter.
You could also use the squese mode on the camera but that is not a true 16:9, it´s fake
The only thing you get is reduced resolution as a result.
If you liked that then fine bit it is still a 4:3 chip camera

Ummm... 16:9 in DV is 720x480. 4;3 in DV is 720x480. ALL DV is squeezed. The difference between 4;3 and 16:9 is simply the aspect ratio of the pixels.
The DVX 100 is a very solid camera that records very very nice 16:9 images.
If you want square pixel 16:9 images, you need an HD cam.
