Batteries for XL2

Are the bateries the same as XL1, ie backwards & forwards compatable. Is it possible to stream Analogue thru camera to another DV device, instead of digitising to DV tape in camera first. Well done Chris & Simon. Cheers PC

From the photos posted it appears it still uses the same series of Canon batteries as the XL1 etc.

See my XL1 / XL2 items compatibility list.

See also my XL2 battery endurance chart.

Hope this helps,

Thanks guys.
The camera sounds good. I'll be lining up for one as the XL1s is very tired.
Cheers PC

ta-100 and battery question

I was looking at the ta-100 here

http://www.xl1s.com/xl2pics/IMG_2513.jpg

and it looks like it connects via a sony vct-u14 (or something like that) plate will canon be selling the mounting plate (u14 like) as well or just the ta-100.

Does anyone know what the watthours are on the canon batteries, is that in the watchdog and I just missed it?

Thanks
Nick

The TA100 comes supplied with the camera part.

The XL2 comes as standard the same as the XL1S with just a thread and the tripod location pin hole.

Cheers!

Simon.

SO I'm guessing at the bottom of the camera part there is a place to screw in a sachtler wedgeplate (or any other kind for that matter)?

The bottom of the camera part has a wedge which fits the TA100 which has a row of 1/4 and 3/8" threads to go on a tripod.

Cheers!

Simon.

Do you know if the integrated should pad is removable, with the threaded hole under it (like XL1S for mounting the MA100)?
Thx
Alex

The integrated shoulder pad is not removeable. Not intentionally removeable anyway.

It won't connect to a Miller tripod as all their new pods come with a very small plate, even their big tripods. PC

Cool I think I mis phrased my last question, what I meant was. If I buy the ta-100 will I then have to buy a quickrelease plate, or is one included with the ta-100 bundle. Then at the bottom of the quickrelease (if it's included with the ta-100) can I then mount a sachtler (or whatever) wedgeplate to connect it to my tripod?

i wonder if the CH-910 dual battery holder can snap right onto the XL2 should pads?

i mean the MA200 ain't compatible with the XL2. do i really NEED to buy the MA300 to outfit the XL2 with CA-910 dual bat pack?

edit: nevermind, yeah it does here:

"The back of the Canon XL2 is dominated by the shoulder rest, which is now officially part of the camcorder body. Above the shoulder rest is a battery mount, which can accommodate the optional CH-910 battery charger and BP-945 batteries."

3rd Party Batteries.....whats the verdict?

I have been away from the Canon scene for 2 years with my DVX100. I am onboard with the XL2. What batteries and accessories do you recommend? I don't need the Anton Baur setup.....I am nore interested in Canon Official Batteries versus Lenmar, Power 1000 or whatever others are out there for less.

Are these legit or are they scams and don;t actually last very long? Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks.
