Thanks Jimmy. Believe it or not, I didn't use any custom settings at all. The basic settings were 24pA (2:3:3:2), gain at -3, shutter speed 1/48, auto white balance (there was a reason for that I can go over later), 16:9. I have the 20X lens and it was at F1.8 because I had to zoom in on the M2 element (or else I would have had it at F1.6). I used a Nikkon 50mm lens at F1.4 on the M2.

Other than that, I left all the settings at the default.

The camera did pretty good at the default settings. If I had more experience, I might have tried some things.

Thanks,

Kelly

I think that setting was quite enough since you stated that you are using an adapter.
How much did you purchase the adapter????????? because I am still considering which one to by, G35 or Micro35.

xl2 low light

I can not figure out how to get that crisp look under low lighting. I tried the low lighting settings and it still comes out snowy looking. If anyone can help with my problem I would very much appreciate it. O and I am new to the canon xl2

lawrence,
How low is the "low lighting" you mention? There is no one setting that's going to magically make a really low light situation look like a nicely exposed and well lit shot. In video as in photography, it's all about the light. There are some helpfull settings for lower light situations, and I'm sure they are still archived on dvinf. The lower the light and the more gain you use, the less clean and crisp the image will be.
