My XL-H1 Uncompressed footage playing at B&H in NYC

Hey all,

I shot and edited last spring a film trailer of a feature film I was looking to direct where we shot with the Canon XL-H1 24F with a P+S Technik Mini35 w/Zeiss Spuperspeed Cine Primes, and went fully uncompressed out and recorded to a MacPro w/Decklink HD Extreme to a field RAID.

I recently gave B&H a sample reel of some RAW clips of the shoot and they liked the footage so much that they used it as display footage in store on all their production monitors.

Well I just spoke with them yesterday and they told me that because of the footage, they quickly sold all the Canon XL-H1 cameras they had and are currently backordered. Can anyone let Canon know about this so I can get the next update to the camera for free? :)

So if you are in NYC and want to see what uncompressed XL-H1 footage with the mini35 and CinePrimes looks like, go drop by the store.

Sorry, have been busy lately and totally forgot about this thread. I will try to get some quick RAW clips up of the footage soon. How do I get access to host footage on this site?

Suffice to say, the footage is great and I would have no qualms using this setup for a feature film. In fact, I'll be doing exactly that in the upcoming year.

What's interesting is I'll have the Sony XDCam EX1 in a few weeks as well, so I can do some direct comparisons of the 2 cams.

Alright, I've compressed an H.264 for my website of some quick clips that you guys can check out. It is in the portfolio section, under "Uncompressed Footage."

I will try to get a short couple second clip up for download so you can see the video in full quality.

The clip posted is from a film trailer I shot back last spring. It should give an indication of what the camera is capable of when taking advantage of its capabilities.
