Couple of GL2 Related Questions. . .

Hey guys!

I'm gonna be using a GL2 tomorrow and I haven't used it one for a long, long time and am a bit "rusty" as they say. I'm wondering if I can use my Century MKII Wide matte box and 15mm rods with the GL2 *without* a wide angle converter. Glancing over the pictures of the GL2, it appears the microphone would be in the way.. am I just seeing things here?

Also, the tutorial on "title mix" was very cool. Bet this is old news for all ya'll regulars around here, but it is a completely new idea for me. I'm inspired. I really love the 1.66:1 framing, ala Super16mm, and would like to get a hold of .jpg that is compatible with the GL2 with this aspect ratio embedded. Does anyone have one for sharing? Any other ideas?

Thanks!

Brian,
Can't help you with the matte-box question, since I only use the Arri one, but regarding the title-mix question, have a look at:

http://www.dvinfo.net/canongl2/index.php

for a tutorial on how to do it.
There used to be some links to 16:9 templates, but they seem to be broken by now - unless someone else can come back with one...

Good luck - I used to use the title-mix facility.
The only thing to remember is that you're still using the whole of the 4:3 frame, so if you were to apply certain effects, they would also affect the black borders as well.

Ack, those .jpg links are broken? Rats. Maybe one of you guys can create some new ones... meanwhile I'll have to dig around and see if I have local copies somewhere...
