recording without tape

Its been 5 years my xlh1 sat in mothballs. I got it out and the tape mechanism is not working properly it seems.
runs a second or two and stalls, runs ok then when I try to download it stalls every second or two
I tried it in SD and run it in my xl2 and it does the same thing, so it definitely is a tape/ recording issue.
Canon will not repair it I was told, to old Apparently.

is there a reasonable way to record from the camera bypassing the tape? I looked at b and h and todays digital recorders are all hdmi.

Any help appreciated.

Re: recording without tape

I used to run my two HDV Canon cameras, an XH-A1 and an XH-A1S without tape all the time the last two or three years I was using them. The compact flash recorders I used on both were the DataVideo DN-60. It did become hard to find proper CF cards for the recorders at the end. Check the DataVideo website...

Re: recording without tape

Dale does the XLH1 have an sdi output? There are some external recorders with sdi but I don't have any experience with them.

Re: recording without tape

In the past I used a Focus Firestore recorder, your camera needs a firewire out. You could pick one up for $200-$400 on ebay

Re: recording without tape

+1 for the firestorm. I've still got one for an old JVC and it solves the problem quite nicely.
