Upgrading your XM2/GL2
Hi i have been hearing many storys about people uprading there gl2 about taking out the 3 X 1/4 CCD and putting 3 amazing 1/2 inch CCDs. have any of you heard about this? also is it possible to do this.

Graham Bernard December 12th, 2005 01:46 PM

Yeah? Where would that be - where did you "hear" that one?


Nathaniel McInnes December 12th, 2005 01:57 PM

i saw it on the internet somewhere. i dont know where

Georg Liigand December 12th, 2005 02:34 PM

Sounds strange indeed!!

Bobby Abernathy December 12th, 2005 03:46 PM

Well if it's on the internet....

Nathaniel McInnes December 13th, 2005 12:35 PM

Bigger chips would mean a bigger lens, so you're into a new camera body to start with...
You're looking at a completely different camera.

that is what i thought. i looked further into this and ive been trying to find the site. i agree that you would need a bigger lens also i think you would need a brand new body.

Robin Davies-Rollinson December 15th, 2005 11:27 AM

...and different circuitry, so in the end it's going to be a whole new camera isn't it ;-)


Nathaniel McInnes December 15th, 2005 02:04 PM

yea it would probably cost more to upgrade the thing than buy say a Sony DSR-450WSP. And for people who dont know what this camera is, its a 2/3 inch broadcast camera.
