support question about my new xl2...

wow...what a camera! The first question I have right off the bat is, what's available to help support this front heavy beast for hand held? I saw something that has a support attached from the camera down to your belt, but I can't remember where.
Any help would be apprecited.

There are a lot of support products available for you to choose from. Although I'm unsure exactly if all of them will work with the XL2, I hope this can get your research started.

For one, DVInfo already has some article reviews on products like the DV Caddie and Marzpack

Then check out the DV Rig Pro over at DVTec

Finally, you'll want to purchase from one of DVInfo's sponsers:

EVS Online
16X9INC
BHPhoto
Zotz Digital
ZGC

16X9INC has some support products right on their front page, and I believe you can purchase the DV Rig Pro over at EVS Online as well, but check all of our sponsers for excellent support products.

Thanks, Chris. I'll be getting the caddie. Btw, what bag are you guys using? I'd like something big enough for the xl2 and accessories( preferably Kata).

If you guys get the Caddie be sure to let us know how you like using it with your XL2s. I'm very curious about that setup as well. The DV Caddie is going for $209 at EVS.

Bruce, camera cases and bags may deserve another thread on its own, but I will be using a Pelican 1650 hard case for my future XL2 with padded dividers I think. I don't care for the foam stuff anymore.

I notice over at EVS they have the Portabrace CC-210-PW listed next to the XL2 as a recommended accessory, but it's $330. Check it out here

The Kata CCC-10 is quite nice. Though I'm waiting for the body only XL2, and therefore haven't placed the camera inside the bag, other members have said that it does in fact fit. It's a soft case, and supposedly the largest allowed as a carry-on on planes. If you wanted something a bit bigger, you could go for the CCC-1, which I'm sure will fit the XL2 and other accessories.
