Set-up Question

Anyone know if the default set-up is 0% or 7.5% ?

Man, I've got those hand-written notes buried around here somewhere, but it'll take me awhile. Can somebody else beat me to it?

Setup level adjusts the standard point of the black level of video signal. In USA (NTSC) the black level is set for 7.5 IRE, in Japan (NTSC) the black level is set at 0 IRE, for PAL and SECAM systems the black level is set for 0 IRE. Professional cameras use 3 IRE for the black level. The XL2 has a 13 step adjustment, with the default mid level being 3 IRE.

Wouldn't it be nice if the IRE values for each setting were labeled?

If 3 IRE is the default, does that make the lowest setting 0 and the highest 7.5? Anyone know? Just curious.
