mini 35

you should also consider getting a mini 35 if you want to get the film look. Here are some specs.
Get exactly the same depth of field, focus and angle of view as with a 35mm film camera.
Reproduces the three-dimensional quality of 35mm film on a Mini DV tape.
Better images with your Canon XL1 for TV spots, Internet applications, commercials and presentations.
Get immediate results on a monitor with none of the costs of post-production associated with 35mm film production.
The Adapter relay has its own iris to control of the amount of light through the system without affecting depth of field, giving new creative freedom not available on a standard camera setup.
The unit comes with your choice of mounts-- Arri PL, Panavision, Nikon, Leica, Canon EF, Zeiss Contax -- optimized for 35mm fixed focal length lenses.


Uses

Film Crews: Shoot pre-production trial footage and get a true 35mm image without using an expensive film camera.
Email film-like quality trial footage from the field.
Film Schools: Great for film schools teaching 35mm framing, lighting and depth of field control.
Film Students: Rent the P+S Mini Digital adapter and 35mm film lenses from your local film equipment rental facility and get practical film production experience without using expensive film stock.
Practice focus-pulling, shoot and get creative with depth of field -- all on inexpensive Mini DV tape.
Professional Videographers: Reproduce the three-dimensional quality of 35mm film on video and produce better images for TV spots, Internet applications and presentations.

How It Works


The adapter creates a 35mm image on the ground glass located in the film plane of the 35mm lens you attach to it. By creating a physical image inside the adapter, the natural control over the depth of field, present in 35mm film format, is preserved on your Mini DV tape. This true 35mm format image is then relayed onto the camcorder's CCDs.

The adapter relay has its own iris to control the amount of light through the system without affecting depth of field. Defining the depth of field is usually achieved by setting the aperture of the film lens. Adjust the iris on the adapter to control independently the amount of light through the system. This feature of the Mini 35 Digital adapter gives you a new creative freedom not available on a standard camera setup.

In addition, the angle of view of the lens is preserved. For example, a 25mm film lens remains wide angle when it is used on this system.

Where can I get one? How much does it cost? Is it only for the Canon XL1 or can I use it with a 37mm or 52mm thread comcorder?

ZGC (www.zgc.com) is the North American distributor for the P+S Technik series of 35mm image converters. Don't know where you can find it in Chile, but perhaps people at ZGC may help you.

Visite the above web site. But it is pretty expensive (in the 6500-8000$ range). You may consider to rent one instead of buying one.

<<<-- Is it only for the Canon XL1 or can I use it with a 37mm or 52mm thread comcorder? -->>>

P+S Technik supply adaptors for the XL1/XL1s, the Sony DSR PD150, VX1000, VX2000 and Panasonic AG-DVX 100.

Hope this help
