While I'm on a roll it should be simple for them to lock the camera to black burst or composite video coming in through another (or the existing BNC) video connector. I'll bet the sum total of all three of those things wouldn't raise the cost to the consumer by more than a couple hundred dollars if that. But then what percentage of buyers wants or would even know what to do with these signals? It would probably be a bad marketing decision.

Asked for it on Friday and they grant my wish the following Wednesday (without sample clock but genlock and LTC will do the job)!

What kind of hardware is it? Extract timing info from LANC port? Hmmm, sounds like nice thing then. Can point me to weblink then?

TS,

I was referring to the newly announced XLH1. It will accept or generate both genlock and LTC. The box I use for recording external audio (MOTU traveller) can resolve to LTC so my sync problem is solved (as soon as I figure out how to get a $9000 camera past my wife - wish they'd kept the color scheme the same!)

[Fixed XL1H to read XLH1]

Ouch!! XL1H costs more than XL2? That don't make sense to me. Canon is definitely up to something here. I have to check out what's so great about XL1H then. Thanks for headup.

Oops ... new camera is not XL1H ... but, it should be XL H1 :-). HD version of XL fellow. Can sleep on it - because PAL version won't be out so soon. Even NTSC is only available Dec this year.
