Just found a small fine tuning tool for the A1:

I did not test it yet.

It doesn't work for Mac, so I can't use it.

Yes indeed, it is PC-only. I should have indicated that earlier, sorry. Thread title changed.

I've replaced the Google translation link in my post above with the English version of the page as forwarded to me by the program's author, Rudi Schmidts.

That link again is http://www.slashcam.de/artikel/Aktio...and-XH-G1.html

I just tried out the tuning tool. It seems to be a very good utility for managing custom preset files, but it doesn't actually work with the camera directly (unless I am missing something drastic), so you can't see the effect of changing a parameter until you save the preset to an SD card and then plug that into the cam.

It's not really a replacement for Canon's CONSOLE program, unfortunately.

XH Custom Preset Tuner Tool

Hey All,

I don't think this has made it to the forum here just yet.

But, a european company called slashcam has developed a freeware program called 'XH Tuner'. It allows the user to modify cutom presets and save to an SD card. It Looks like a neat little program that could save some of the in-camera menu hassle associated with complete CP changes.

Only snags: PC-based with no mac option. And no XL H1 version (A1 and G1 only).

Given that I'm a Mac/H1 User, I can't report. But thought this thread may enjoy it.

A Canon XH presets manager application

Following a link from Mike Curtis at HD for Indies to this slashcam page.

http://www.slashcam.de/artikel/Aktio...and-XH-G1.html

Windows only and requires .NET 2.0 but might be worth a try since it's freeware.

YMMV,

For easier reference, I've merged three separate topics into one single thread.

Doh!

Sorry Chris, I didn't see the original. I did scan down several thread titles in the XH forum before posting, but it apparently was more than a page back.

Yeah, Mike Curtis was a little late with the notice on his blog, but it's all good.

So any chance of porting this over for the H1?

I think I recall you saying that you need an H1 to test this. Couldn't you just access some H1 preset files and see what is in them? Perhaps you can just customize it without actually having the H1 on hand. That would at least be an option. I'd be willing to try it out with my H1 if you need.

Peace!
