SD Card

The XLH1 shipped with a 16MB SD card with Canon stamp on it. Can I use any SD card ok? I saw 4Gig for around $50 I think.

Yes, you can use other brands and sizes of SD cards in the Canon XL H1.

My recommendation would be to stick to a quality brand and avoid a cheap knockoff. There are counterfeit SD cards out there.

Even a 2GB is overkill in my opinion. You'd probably never fill a 4GB. Stick a 512MB or a 1GB in and forget about it.

Well it all depends on how and to what you are using it.
When I am on a long trip filming, I'm glad I have 2 gb to put my stills on.
For common videoing I agree with you.
I also take alot of stills for use later in the editing prosess, stills are also nice to use in a storyboard as they are taken from the location.

SD Card Multiple Possible Use With Firmware Upgrade

What about Canon providing a possible firmware upgrade which would allow you to record MPEG 4 video to SD card ? Now this would be a very cool option. Perhaps HDV codec to SD ? What about DIVX to SD ? AVC to SD ? The SD drive is already in the camera and the circuitry is already there.
