Yep

Sure, plug in the firewire cable. Fire up Premiere and Capture a Movie. Hit Record and you'll be streaming it in.

Does the Canon VL-3 light work with XM1?

Hi,
I see the Canon VL-3 light can be used with the GL2. Is
it also possible to use it with the GL1/XM1 ?

Sorry, no; the VL3 light derives power from the Advanced Accessory Shoe on the GL2/XM2. The Advanced Accessory Shoe is "hot," that is, it's wired for power. The accessory shoe on the GL1/XM1 does not supply power, therefore the various AAS accessories such as the VL3 light and DM50 stereo mic are not compatible.

Light Comparison

I am trying to determine which would be more useful, a VL3 Light or the VL10Li. Does the number indicate the wattage? The VL3 is self powered by the camera I understand so does that mean that you need an additional 900 series battery to power the VL10Li? One for the camera, one for the light? Does a battery come with it?

How about useing them outside...are either of them useful for fill light outdoors?

Any info anyone can offer on these questions would be appreciated.

Jim

Although I haven't used the GL1 extensively, I imagine it is like most cameras in that it will shut down after about five minutes or so if there is a TAPE inside. Without the tape it should stay on as long as there is power. (Again, may be a bit of conjecture for your camera specifically.)

As for keeping the power on with the tape, I haven't ever heard of a way. Are you trying to keep some settings (white balance, etc)? (Aren't these retained as long as there is power, even if the camera is off?) Or is it just the annoyance factor?

HTH,
Clayton

Try leaving the tape door open, I'm not in front of my camera, but I think this works.

GL1 VS SONY TRV240E

OK this may not be the place to ask this but here go's. Which has a better picture quality a SONY TRV240E or a Cannon GL1 or GL2? I want to get a camera that has a high picture quality that is a little on the low end. I really love the new camera I saw on the back of filmaker magazine last year, it looked nice but I have no Idea on the cost and the magazine is at home. (SIGH)

24fps

Goldenfleece,

you are from Sheffield so I guess you are using a PAL camera - slow shutter does not change the frame rate, just how long the shutter is open on each frame. I guess that the Sony author meant to say it gives a "24 fps like effect":) It will still be 25fps on the tape.

The TRV-240E is a 1-CCD camcorder, (1/6" in the NTSC version). It is Digital8, around US$550 or so.

Should be no contest, the GL1/GL2 should provide the better image by far under most circumstances.

It would be difficult for any 1-chipper to beat a 3-chipper except in low light conditions. Simply put, 3-chippers have 1 chip per primary color and that gives them a decisive advantage when it comes to image reproduction.

Since these 3-chippers are better cam, it does require a little knowledge to operate them properly. If you are always going to use "green box auto" mode you may not see much difference between a 1-chipper and a 3-chipper. However, when properly used the results can be quite awesome.

So if you are contemplating a purchase, take the time to learn a little photography before you try these cams. It will help you determine which cam is best for you.

gl1 mic picking up distortion - also blue/green video

hi
has anyone had any problems w/getting tremendously distorted audio after playback *on both onboard speaker and computer speakers*

i noticed that after i recorded a wedding reception (which had a loud dj) the sound was super distorted when i played it back and i thought i had blown the mic, but then i recorded an live acoustic performance and it picked up excellent.

a week later i was at a party again and the bass seemed way too much for the mic when i'm playing it back now it's really distrorted again. (also my screen started recording blue and green horizontal stripes??!!)
...it's still under canon's 1 year warranty, should i consider an exchange or is there anything to do besides change the 12-bit/16-bit record levels?

sorry so long, thanks...
