Yeah the original 1/4 inch issue with the XL2 was vertical which the new base platform kit resolves, but apparently only for the series 400 mini35. The issue for series 300 units even after the upgrade kit is 1/4 inch short horizontally. (The XL2 does not reach the mini35 image converter)

It appears the short term solution would be to grind some metal off the mini35, but somehow I just don't feel compelled to have to grind my investment.

Footage?

Not yet, as you'll see from this thread the XL2 baseplate upgrade kit still does not allow the Canon XL2 to work with all mini35 units, particularly the series 300.

Lenses you used on the "Limb from Limb" short

I was just wondering what kind and what size of lenses did you used on your short film. I really liked your short film and will be shooting my own real soon, possibly with an XL2. However, I noticed that the mini35 is out of my budget for now. Do you know any place that rents the mini35 with the adapter for cheap. Thanks for your time. Keep up the good work.

Brandon - sorry for the delay in reply.

I used our Ziess T1.3 Prime Lenses - 18, 25, 35, 50 and 85mm. I'm sure I used each at different times.

As for rental, drop me an email - i run http://www.IndieRentals.com and I can hook you up with a good deal.

Better late then never

FINALLY I have some mini35/XL2 footage to post! This is my 3rd project with the rig already, I will post more from the other projects as soon as I can.

Let me know what you guys think, I personally think the XL2 and mini35 is a killer combination. This footage has not been played with too much in post, it would be interesting to see what else can be made out of it.

Enjoy!

Okay, I'm on a roll now...

The link below will get you to a BMW Spec Commercial which I finally got around to editing this weekend. The footage was shot back in mid November.

Just finished shooting

Hey Guys,

I just finished production on a XL2 Mini-35 short. I cut a trailer for it cause the film won't be finished till next summer. I don't have a way to post it online but if you're interested in seeing it I can email it to you with Yousendit.com. It doesn't take up an mailbox space...so, I'd love to have you look at it. If you're interested, let me know.

Hey Sid,

That would be awesome. I'm actually in Italy right now studying abroad but I have the trailer on my computer. It's a quicktime file, set at a 16x9 480x260...something like that. It's internet size basically.

I've never posted anything online before so let me know what I need to do. Thanks for the offer. I appreciate it.

hi Dave,

I emailed Josh that very same day with all the info on how to upload it to the server but i haven't heard anything from him. I'm going to shut that connection down at the end of the month if there is no activity.
