thinking period done (new xl-2 owner :)

Could never decide what cam, so yesterday I just closed my eyes and bought one. Got it today, just assembled and taken a few testshots with autosettings.

it is something different :)

Im somwhat looking forward in a few months when I dont think of the costs anymore, though.

See you all in the discussions !

Salut Anders,

And congratulations!

Please do keep in touch and let us know if any questions.

Perhaps we can meet when I take my trip to Scandinavia in the next year. You are quite a lucky person to have such beautiful natural surroundings in Norway!

Wishing you well,

- don

hehe. my first footage is now online.

First 10 mins of recording with xl-2, cu together in a no-meaning 'movie'.

A bit manual, a bit fiddling with the controlls, a bit auto, a few bad images and a few not so bad.

I think my cam and me will get along just fine.
