Question About 24p Real-Time Preview.

Hi,

I was recently able to check out the Canon XL2 and XH-A1 at my local Fry's, and I'm a little confused about something.

I noticed, on both the XL2 and the XH-A1, that 24p looks about 5 or ten frames slower when just looking through the viewfinder (I wasn't recording or playing back, I was just looking around w/ the cams). The output on the preview television did not move anything like the preview through the viewfinder.

Is that normal for these models?

Thanks,
Alex

Hey Alex,

The only time that I have noticed a lag in preview is when I have been previewing via firewire (when I'm capturing direct to my laptop). When I am using component/composite previewing with my on-cam monitor or external tele I do not notice any lag.
