Maize and Blue. GO BLUE!

I was making fun of all the detractors (me included) who've
rushed to voice opinions without having seen the images produced
by the XL2 and voice opinions as to whether they'll buy or not
based on pure speculation
(and such things as color of the camera body).

When told (erroneously) that the XL2 had 8 bit
processing I was disappointed. Why? Because from what I've
seen cameras with 12 bit processing produce better images than
those with less bit depth. One of the greatest challenges to the
XL1 (and all video cameras) is its ability to handle high contrast lighting.

Higher bit rates, even if only in processing, usually result in better looking
video and I am happy that Canon's XL2 has 12 bit processing.
I just wished it had 10bit SDI out to go with it (sorry Bill ;)
