Oops, actually the XL2 is limited to +12db in 24P and 30P frame rates. See the bottom of page 61 in the operator's manual. Great setting, though! Thanks for sharing it,

I am sometime reminded that "NTSC" is short for Never The Same Color twice;)

Could someone please post the settings for this? I use a Mac and am unable to download it.

TIA

Hi Javier,

Although you can't use the software, you can still download the preset file and open it with any old text editor (it is possible to open a .txt file on a Mac, isn't it)? If you can open it with a text editor, the conventional settings are in there and properly identified and you should be able to read them.

Anyone have an idea why I can't get the Bluebarn presets to load into my XL2? I have installed the program and have the presets on my computer. I plug in my camera and turn the controls to the Ext Control position. Once plugged in I get the usual "found AV/C device." I've tried both letting it go to the Internet and not allowed it to go to the Internet. Once I open the program and try to go to Preset 1, or 2 or three, the program hangs for a couple of seconds and then comes back with an error message and then completely crashes and closes. I've tried this on three XP computers...same results. I normally capture all my video through a Sony deck, not the camera and this is the first time I've plugged the camera into the computer. Could it have something to do with the necessary drivers for the camera? If so, what am I missing?
Thanks,
Dave M.

Does the Presets manager work on a PAL XL2 or is it only for the NTSC version?

Steven,
I'm not sure which David your question was directed at, but I'll field you question. I got it working after realized I wasn't allowing the driver for the Blue Barn presets to install on the XL2. After I allowed them to install, it worked as advertised.
